Nottingham, we’re coming for you…

The Whisky Lounge wagon is rolling into town for our first ever Nottingham Whisky Festival!

whisky tasting newcastleIf you haven’t been to one of our legendary festivals before you are in for a treat!

You’ll get to sample the best home-grown whiskies from Scotland, as well as all corners of the globe. The Nottingham Whisky Festival aims to attract the finest distillers from as far afield as Taiwan, India, Japan and the USA. Simply approach any of the exhibitors stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall whisky tasting newcastlereceive 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.

Under the Counter Dram tokens

The vast majority of whiskies at the festival are available to taste within your ticket price. However, we recommend you take the opportunity to sample some of the rarer, more exclusive whiskies by purchasing Under the Counter dram tokens on the day.

Show your Under the Counter dram token to an exhibitor and wait for their nod of approval as they reveal their secret stash.

There are several tiers of tokens which can be purchased on the day, and exchanged for different levels of whisky:

  • Orange tokens £5 each
  • Black tokens £10 each

The Festival Shop

As in previous years, we will have a retail shop in the show to take care of all your purchasing needs and selling every whisky that you will find in the show.

Exhibitors…

…will keep appearing here at regular intervals, please keep checking back to see what distilleries are in store for you!

    

The boring bit

To book your place at a masterclass, you will need a separate ticket for each. We add more details about the masterclasses before the event, so be sure to check back regularly.

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 recipients.

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