The Islay Festival 2019 Tasting – Newcastle SOLD OUT
June 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Islay Festival 2019 Tasting – Newcastle
Are you a fan of ‘peaty’ whisky?
Do you crave for those smoky, intense flavours no other whisky can provide?
Or do you have someone in your life that answers to this description?
If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then you are in exactly the right place!
The Islay Festival of Whisky and Music (Fèis Ìle) takes place during the last week of May every year. It is a 10-day long celebration of all things Islay, with each distillery having a special day in which to shine and welcome thousands of visitors. The distilleries also launch a special festival bottling (or two) during this time, many of which are only available to people who make the pilgrimage.
Happily (or not), you do not have to travel all that way in order to taste these awesome whiskies. For this hotly anticipated series, we bring a selection of these bottlings to you!
In summary, this tasting is a one-off chance to try some incredible drams that you possibly will not get to try again, and certainly not six of them under one roof!
As always, these tasting events start promptly at 7 pm and finish around 9 pm. They may be slightly shorter, or they may go on a little longer. We finish when you are ready to finish and we are very relaxed about that. However, if you need to get away sooner as you have a train to catch or similar, please let the host know so that they can make sure you sample all the whiskies in time!
