Long weekend: The four-day Scotch whisky festival will coincide with Burns Night has partnered with London Cocktail Week organiser DrinkUp.London to bring whisky fans a packed four-day schedule of events and ‘Cocktail Tours’ from 23-27 January.

Timed to coincide with the most Scottish of celebrations – Burns Night (25 January) – the Scotch Whisky Weekend will offer traditional Burns celebrations alongside more informal cocktail experiences.

A cherry-picked list of venues across the capital will be offering bespoke Scotch whisky cocktails for just £6 with a Festival Pass.

Festival Passes are free, and can be collected and accessed via the DrinkUp.London app, available from the App Store and Google Play.

Siobhan Payne, festival director, said: ‘Scotch Whisky Weekend is going to be a fantastic opportunity for whisky lovers and novices alike to explore Scotch while discovering some of London’s best bars.

‘On top of that, DrinkUp.London is going to be the one-stop-shop for information about all the very best Scotch events happening for Burns night as part of the festival – what better way to celebrate?’

The Cocktail Tours are self-guided, so revellers can map out their own route around the city and take in the participating bars at their own pace.

A schedule of special Burns pop-ups, parties and events hosted throughout the Scotch Whisky Weekend will be released in January, with Festival Pass holders guaranteed the first look.
