Top whiskies sign up for Edinburgh Whisky Stramash


The Edinburgh Whisky Stramash, which takes place on 26th-27th May 2012, was officially launched last week at Edinburgh’s historical Surgeons’ Hall.

According to the Scotland Food & Drink site, the inaugural Whisky Stramash aims to shake up the whisky industry by combining the popular spirit with unusual elements and experiences and, of course, the opportunity to sample the nation’s favourite tipple.

Whisky favourites such as Dewar’s, Jura and Bunnahabhain, as well as Finnieston, Isle of Mull and Arran Single Malt, have signed up to exhibit at the event, along an array of other top brands.

The event challenges the traditional “stuffy” whisky-associated events and promises to be full of mystery, entertainment, comicality and madcap pioneering.

Enthusiasts of whisky from around the world will encounter many elements and experiences, including a concoction of molecular experiments, a murder-mystery drama, whisky cocktails and an insight into the gruesome lives of barber surgeons.
