Festival in a Box
FRIDAY 16th – SUNDAY 18th OCTOBER 2020
The Whisky Lounge presents:
WHISKY FESTIVAL IN A BOX
A virtual festival with a difference!
The first of these is that we will be broadcasting live from our local friends, Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery. An appropriate and exciting venue we hope you will agree!
Spread across three days, we will have distinct festival ‘sessions’ taking place at various times. If you are not able to make these times, don’t panic, you will be able to watch the session back via our Facebook page, or on our YouTube Channel, at a later time or date.
We will have producers and ambassadors presenting from all over the world, and in many cases, from the distillery where the liquid is made or the warehouses where it is stored.
As always, our festival will include whiskies from near and far-flung places, as well as a focus on Scotch whiskies, to reflect the diverse nature of this wonderful liquid. Anyone with an interest, however big or small, will find a Whisky Festival in a Box for them.
