Vi har modtaget følgende mail fra arrangørerne af Inverness Whisky Festival 2014, der løber af stablen 4. og 5. april:
“Hello Whisky Lovers of Denmark,
I am emailing you from the wonderful Scotland to let you know about a fantastic whisky festival that takes place in April each year, which might be something of interest to you.
The Inverness Whisky Festival returns for it’s forth year in 2014. Since its inauguration in 2011 the festival has continued to attract global interest and this year is expected to be no different. With a number of changes to the structure, 2014 looks set to be the biggest to date and planning is already well underway to ensure guests experience a truly Scottish affair.
The festival commences on Friday 4th April with a tour around some of Inverness’ best known and oldest pubs, where guests will get to experience more than just a tasting session. The tour will encourage guests to submerse themselves in the history of our nations drink, the music and the local craic! Bruce MacGregor, founder of Blazin Fiddles (Folk Band of the Year, 2013), will lead the troops as they enjoy a selection of fine drams and some impassioned story-telling which will bring history to life.
The evening culminates in the award-winning Hootanannys where guests will enjoy a traditional Scottish ceilidh courtesy of Bruce and friends.
The Saturday event will kick off at noon and will see a whole host of distilleries descend upon Bogbain Farm for the day. Along with the exhibitions, guests will also have the chance to attend master classes, taste some of the finest local food, and enjoy some fantastic music and entertainment in the barn. It truly is a fantastic, Scottish experience and the venue makes it different from any of the other whisky festivals. It’s not every day you get to sample some of the finest malts, accompanied by some traditional Scottish music, in a 19th century farm.
Inverness is accessible from all over Europe with flights flying directly into Inverness from a number of locations. Or you could make a holiday of it and fly into Edinburgh/Glasgow and make your way through the beautiful countryside to the Highlands, perhaps stopping in at your favourite distillery!
Tickets are on sale and are available from http://www.invernesswhiskyfestival.com/tickets. A tasting glass is also included in the ticket price which makes for a great souvenir.
