Whisky tasting London The London Whisky Weekender 2018

Bringing whisky to the masses through informative and fun festivals, is our mission.

Whether you’re a whisky fanatic or whisky curious, our London Whisky Weekender tasting event is an absolute must-do for the good folks of London. Our famous festival format is fabulous. And because it’s our 10th birthday, we’ve got some exciting stuff lined up.

Sample over 100 whiskies – included in your festival ticket price

You’ll sample the best home-grown whiskies from Scotland and further afield. The London Whisky Weekender is the must-do whisky tasting event in London, attracting the finest distillers from as far afield as Australia and Taiwan.

Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky for free! (It really is that simple.)

Every exhibitor should know their whisky inside out, so it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge. They’ll be able to answer any whisky-related questions you may have and will happily explain why their whisky is so damn tasty.

Your full-session ticket includes

  • Entry to one session
  • Take-home tasting glass
  • The Festival Guide
  • ALL WHISKIES SAMPLED IN MAIN HALL (not including ‘under the counter’ drams)
  • 1 white token and 1 orange token (not included in Taster Tickets)
  • Water on tap

Takeaway Whisky from the Festival Shop

Our friends from The Whisky Exchange will be on hand to take care of all your purchasing needs. You’ll find them selling every whisky that you can sample at the festival.


Under the Counter Drams

Take the opportunity to sample some of the rarer, more exclusive whiskies with our Under the Counter drams. You can buy tokens on the day. Show your Under the Counter dram token to an exhibitor and wait their nod of approval as they reveal their secret stash.

There are several tiers of tokens which you can exchange for the exclusive and rare whiskies on the day: A White Token (£3), An Orange Token (£5) and a Black Token (£10)

The boring bit

Please ensure you buy tickets for the right session. We set 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 all human, so if you do get the wrong session by accident, give us a call or email as soon as possible and we’ll do our best to sort out the muddle.

Your ticket will be emailed to you as we do not send out paper tickets. If you are purchasing tickets as a gift for somebody else and you would like PDF tickets emailed to you, please email info@thewhiskylounge.com, stating the name(s) of the recipient(s).

The Whisky Lounge is committed to protecting the safety, health and well-being of its festival-goers, staff and exhibitors. We encourage all participants to drink responsibly. We maintain a challenge 25 policy. Please note: ‘last pour’ is always 15 minutes prior to the session end time.
