 Royal Mile Whiskies will return in 2019 as our event retailer



Returning for our 8th year, the festival goes from strength to strength attracting all the top distilleries from across Scotland.

On the day your ticket will admit you entry into the session you are ticketed for and you will have access to try over 100 malts gaining first hand knowledge from the makers themselves.

At just £30 per ticket, is quite simply heaven for a whisky lover. Stirling Spirit Company co-owner June McCann can't wait for an invasion of 'Dram Busters' "We had over 700 whisky aficionados at the 2018 sell out event and I'm sure with the way sales are going already we will have another sell out for our 2019 festival' said June
She added 'A Stirling Whisky Festival ticket would be the ideal Christmas present for anyone who enjoys a dram but to avoid disappointment I would urge people to click on the link to buy above. 'For any whisky lover this is a not to be missed opportunity to savour some of the biggest names in Scottish whisky, but also to discover a few hidden gems besides and one thats not to be missed.
'But you will need to be quick'

We have had lots of lovely comments from folks who attended.
