The Islay Festival 2019 Eddie Tall Ship Tasting & Sailing

This is an incredible opportunity to sail the high seas, on one of the last wooden sailing ketches in the world, whilst tasting some amazing whiskies.

Only 9 customers will be able to set sail with us, so this is as exclusive as it comes!

Eddie Ludlow, The Whisky Lounge’s whisky evangelist and co-founder, considers himself a friend of Islay. He has been coming to the island for many years, and championing its cause and whiskies for many more.

For this special event, Eddie has agreed to bring some of his personal stash and if you know him, this is a BIG deal! So prepare yourself for a chilled out tasting of epic and tasty proportions…

The Irene has her own acclaimed chef on board who will be preparing some tasty nibbles for you, to ensure you don’t go hungry!

We’ll be boarding the Irene at Port Ellen Pier at 1.45pm to set sail at 2pm sharp. Bring your sea legs, waterproofs and anything else you think you’ll need for this voyage. Life jackets will be provided!

*Please note that all Tall Ship Tastings are weather and tide dependent.
