Whisky Festival 2019
Friday, February 1 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Your Malt Whisky Society committee is very proud to announce that preparations are underway for our biggest event of the year; The Whisky Festival!! Everyone is welcome to come and experience this fabulous display of whisky bonanza on Friday the 1st of February 2019 from 5pm to 9pm in one of the most stunning buildings on campus; the wonderful Elphinstone Hall!
Following the tradition from our previous years, we will have five tables/bars (four representing the whisky regions of Scotland and one table featuring international whiskies) and live musicians will be there to give the festival its magical atmosphere! This year, we will be offering over 50 carefully selected whiskies for you to try, giving you the ultimate chance to discover some great drams and to perhaps find your favourite whisky! We are also working on the idea of calling in certain whisky brands and giving them the opportunity to present and let you taste some of their top products so for all of you whisky lovers out there this is the one event you do not want to miss!!
Everyone is able to buy a ticket, student or not, and this year’s prices will be £15 for members and £18 for non-members. A ticket gives you the chance to try five whiskies from our tables and allows you to take home one of our tasting glasses which will be provided at the festival! For anyone who is still thirsty after their five whiskies we will allow you to buy 2 extra tokens per person for £2 each.
We will be selling tickets during our pre-sales between 11am and 1pm on the ground floor of the Students’ Union Building (aka The Hub) on Friday 18th of January and on Monday 21st of January. We can also sell festival tickets to anyone coming to our first tasting of the year on Wednesday 16th of January (facebook event and newsletter coming soon).
For anyone wishing to become a member of our society memberships can be purchased for £3 from the AUSA website or the AUSA reception at the Students’ Union Building.
We are all looking forward to seeing you and sipping on some splendid whiskies with you!!
