The return of the Spirit of Speyside: Distilled has been announced, with tickets for the two-day event going on sale at noon on Monday 3 July.
The event will take place on 1 and 2 September at Elgin Town Hall, with the aim of uniting Speyside’s best whisky distillers under one roof. Among those distillers already confirmed are Cardhu, Aberlour, Speyburn, Glen Moray, Benromach and Glenlivet. There will also be new gin and vodka distillers in attendances as well as craft breweries, for those with a palate for other spirits.
Spirit of Speyside: Distilled is split into three sessions across Friday evening and Saturday, with each ticket for entry including full access to a session, as well as a Glencairn crystal nosing and tasting glass, a lanyard and eight taster samples of gin, vodka, whisky or beer.
The Spirit of Speyside whisky festival previously celebrated its most successful event to date back in May, with more than 7,000 tickets sold.
George McNeil, Chairman of Spirit of Speyside, said: “Distilled gives us the incredible opportunity to gather with the region’s best producers and distillers, all under one roof in the heart of our community. Whisky lovers will be traveling to our beautiful corner of Scotland to learn from the makers of their favourite malts, compare drams side by side and indulge in a weekend of delicious food & drink made right here in Speyside.”
New for this 2023 edition, Distilled is introducing a VIP ticket option, which allows access to exclusive mini masterclasses and special pours, as well as a VIP chill out zone.
Tickets for Distilled 2023 are priced at £25 for standard entry and £55 for VIP entry. More information can be found at their website.
