Liverpool, UK
Now in its sixth year, Liverpool Whisky Festival has become an absolute must-do for the good folk of this vibrant and exciting city. We love coming here just for the craic!

Not only will you have the chance to taste the best of homegrown whiskies from all over Scotland, but we will also have a good selection of whiskies from all over the world for your delectation.

Throw in a smattering of tremendous workshops and ‘under the counter’ drams and the iconic surroundings of The Lutyens Crypt at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, and you have a fantastic day out on the cards.

For the first time you also have a choice of sessions in order to ease the crowds slightly and make your life more comfortable. The sessions are 11am-3pm or 4pm-8pm.

Here’s what each ticket includes:

- Entry to one session, either 11am-3pm or 4pm-8pm (select which above)
- Glencairn tasting glass
- A bottle of water (for obvious purposes)
- The Festival Guide
- All whiskies sampled in main hall (not including ‘under the counter’ drams)

How the festival works:

Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple). Every exhibitor should know their whiskies inside out and it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge. They’ll be able to answer all and any whisky related questions you may have, and will happily explain why their whisky is so damn tasty.

‘Under the counter’ drams:

The vast majority of whiskies on show are available to taste within your ticket price.
However, ‘under the counter’ token drams simply allow you access to some of the rare and more exclusive whiskies at the festival. We have two tiers of tokens available, which can be purchased on the day: white tokens that cost £2.50 each and black tokens priced at £5 each.

The Festival Shop:

As in previous years we have our friends from The Whisky Exchange at the show to take care of all your purchasing needs and selling every whisky that you will find in the show.
