HIGHLAND WHISKY FESTIVAL 2019
TOMATIN FESTIVAL DAY - 17th OF MAY
Having been named one of the Lonely Planet’s ‘Best In Travel’ destinations in 2019, Tomatin, along with seven Highland Distilleries are proud to introduce a brand-new Whisky Festival to celebrate the established Highland Whisky Trail. The Highland Whisky Festival, which will take place between 10th-17th of May 2019, is a celebration of the region’s finest distilleries on the North Coast 500 route. With each distillery hosting an open day with exclusive events and tastings, it’s an unmissable experience for even the most seasoned of whisky enthusiasts. The North-East Coast of Scotland is breath-taking - impressive scenery, fantastic accommodation, and exceptional dining experiences.
Eight distilleries will come together for the first time ever for a series of exclusive tastings, tours, and events. Starting with Wolfburn on the 10th of May, the Festival will continue south, via Old Pulteney (11th), Clynelish (12th), Balblair (13th), Glenmorangie (14th), The Dalmore (15th), The Singleton of Glen Ord (16th), and finishing here at Tomatin on the 17th May. Each will host visitors from the world over to showcase the centuries of tradition, process, and craft of their home.
