Birmingham Whisky Festival 2016

  • Special event Special event
Start Date
12 November 2016
12pm - 5pm
Birmingham, UK
We are so excited to be bringing our Whisky Festival to the UK’s pride of the Midlands and sharing a few drams with the great folks of Birmingham.

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

Throw in a smattering of tremendous workshops, ‘under the counter’ drams and the superb surroundings of the grade 2 listed Birmingham Council House, and you have a fantastic day out on the cards.

Here’s what each ticket includes:

- Entry to the festival
- Glencairn tasting glass
- A bottle of water (for obvious purposes) The Festival Guide
- All whiskies sampled in the main hall (not including ‘under the counter’ drams).

How the festival works: Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, politely ask 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 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 will allow you access to some of the rare and more exclusive whiskies in the festival. We have two tiers of tokens available which can be purchased on the day:
- White tokens priced at £2.50 each
- 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.
