The fourth National Whisky Festival of Scotland is kicking off in SWG3 today, as part of Celtic Connections 2020.

Spanning across two floors, the festival will offer two extensive three-and-a-half hour sessions of unique whisky tastings, each featuring 40 exhibitors from some of the most exciting names in the industry, with over 100 different whiskies and expressions to try.

Other exhibitors include A D Rattray, SPEY, Paul John, Benromach and the newly rebranded Arran Single malt.

Northern Irish distillers Hinch will make their inaugural journey to NWF alongside Ullapool’s Highland Liquor Co., purveyors of an impressive range of new highland gins including flagship brand, Seven Crofts Gin.

Glasgow Times:

The Glasgow Distillery Company is bringing Glasgow’s first ever peated single malt, and there will also be a whisky cocktail bar by The Blue Arrow Jazz Club, and pop up food and drink stalls from Babu Bombay Street Kitchen, Hawkhead Whisky Smoked and others.

In addition, following their popularity at recent events, there will be two rooms this year dedicated to our masterclass programme: specially-curated seminars and tasting classes hosted by expert exhibitors with the aim of discovering and honing skills and knowledge of various aspects of whisky tasting, production and culture.
