The National Whisky Festival

About The National Whisky Festival

We're thrilled to back in SWG3 following a fantastic SOLD OUT event in 2020! It's been a while but we are geared up, ready to go and we simply can't wait to show you what we have in store for whisky lovers in Glasgow next year!

Across two extensive three-and-a-half hour sessions each event will showcase dozens of exhibitors from many of the most exciting and innovative names from across the industry spectrum, each bringing with them a diverse range of incredible whiskies and guest spirits - all of which are available to try across two tasting rooms and included in the ticket price!

Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or a curious newcomer, you can expect a relaxed day of exploration, celebration and tasting alongside a full programme of live entertainment - including an incredible bill of live music curated by Celtic Connections, unique tasting masterclasses and presentations by brand ambassadors and industry experts as well as pop-up food + drink vendors and craft stalls.
