Festival in a Box


FRIDAY 16th – SUNDAY 18th OCTOBER 2020

The Whisky Lounge presents:


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.

The Festival timetable looks like this;

Plus, the first 50 people to purchase a £35 tasting pack can get a £20 quiz pack for free! Just select the quiz pack, along with the Festival in a Box of your choice, then enter the code FREEQUIZ at checkout.

While we finalise the whiskies in each pack, take a little look at some of the brands and distilleries involved so far:



Please note: We are a very small team, and it takes time to get our lovely packs out to you. Please be patient and be assured that, as long as you order before the 12th October, that you will get your pack/s before the event (courier willing!).

The free Quiz Pack offer is only open to those purchasing full-price tasting boxes via Eventbrite, and does not apply to those using festival ticket credit or any other method.

Please do not try to order the free Quiz pack only. Anyone who does will not receive it, as it is offered only on the basis of buying a full-price festival box.
