Back for its fourth year in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh’s Whisky Stramash will return to Surgeons Hall on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May – with the addition of a brand new Friday night event.

Billed as an experience full of mystery, entertainment, comicality and madcap pioneering, the popular two-day experiential event - celebrating Scotland’s national drink - has a host of impressive brands lined up to showcase and sample their whiskies in weird and wonderful ways during the weekend sessions.

Whisky Stramash returns with a new Friday night bash

The Saturday and Sunday sessions will see a host of big players in the whisky world, as well as smaller independents, treat visitors to their various bottlings whilst offering a fun education on their world class drams.

Commenting on this year’s event, Scott Martin, co-founder of Whisky Stramash, said: “Whisky Stramash will be back this year with more intrigue than ever and after four fantastic years we’re excited to be adding something completely different with a stand-alone bash on the Friday evening. The night will be completely separate from the Whisky Stramash and guests can expect live music, cocktails galore and generally good fun with a twist. We will release more information, including a theme, nearer the time so watch this space.” 

He went on to say: “A number of brands are returning this year including Bunnahabhain, Ledaig, Tobermory, Deanston, Glen Moray, Aberfeldy, AD Rattray and Douglas Laing with Big Peat and Scally Wag. We're also pleased to announce the debuts of Craigellachie and Aultmore this year, a major coup as they don't get very many outings.” Scott added.

Tickets for the Whisky Stramash which are priced at £26 are available to purchase now from www.ticketweb.co.uk with details and tickets for the Friday night event soon to be released.
