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.

Event Details

Organised by 2 local whisky enthusiasts, Chris Knight and Neil Rowley; we wanted a way to give fellow enthusiasts, and new comers alike, the chance to taste new whiskies from a wide range of distillers from around the world, along with some fantastic offerings from independent bottlers.

There are 2 types of ticket, an Admission ticket and a Masterclass ticket. A Masterclass ticket MUST be accompanied by an Admission ticket.

With the increased popularity of gins over recent years, we also wanted to raise people’s awareness of the fantastic products now available. There will be a number of gins available at the festival, giving you a chance to try new gins from some of the many artisan distillers.
