2022 York Whisky Festival

Sat 26th November 2022

Location:

Ebor Stand, York Racecourse, York, YO23 1EX



If you haven’t been to one of our festivals before you are in for a treat! If you have then you know what to expect, only this year we have stripped things back a bit in order to give you the experience you want!

You’ll get to sample the best home-grown whiskies from Scotland, as well as all corners of the globe. The York Whisky Festival attracts the finest distillers from as far afield as India, Japan, the USA and even England!

Simply approach any of the exhibitors stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple!). Every exhibitor knows their whiskies inside out and it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge.

Sessions and tickets

We deliberately set specific session times so the festival doesn’t get overcrowded, meaning you can sip and swallow at your own pace.

Saturday 26th November 2022

Covid-19 and our events

With the changes to Government advice and rules surrounding Covid-19, we have changed our own policy in line with these.

We simply recommend wearing face masks, where possible, and would urge everyone to do a lateral flow test before attending the event, although this is not mandatory.

Anyone with a positive test will be entitled to be transferred to our 2023 festival - you should be rewarded for doing the right thing!

You no longer have to show us a Covid or vaccine passport.


The boring bit

Please, please ensure you buy tickets for the right session. We set strict limits on the number of tickets for each session so visitors can enjoy their whisky at their own pace. We are unable to swap tickets on the day. But, we’re mostly all human, so if you do buy the wrong session by accident, email info@thewhiskylounge.com as soon as possible and we’ll do our best to sort out the muddle.

Please note: ‘last pour’ is always 15 minutes prior to the session end time. This is non-negotiable!

All attendees must be 21 or over – photo ID may be required.

This venue does have disabled access via an appropriate ramp and/or lift. If in doubt or you have any questions, please contact us at info@thewhiskylounge.com
