The Grand Tasting, 2019!
There are only three days to go until the Dornoch Whisky Festival Grand Tasting & we are delighted to be welcoming you to our biggest year yet!
Just a couple of details for those of you who are attending on the day::
The entrance to the Dornoch Whisky Festival Grand Tasting will be through the archway that leads to the Dornoch Castle Hotel Gardens and on the left-hand side you will find the entrance to the marquee where will be waiting to take your tickets at 1 pm. Those of you who have attended the Grand Tasting before will note the change in the entrance as this is no longer through the Dornoch Castle Hotel main entrance. There will be signage to guide you and plenty of people on hand to help.
The Dornoch Castle Hotel will be serving street-style food in the restaurant on their own stand and there will be water bottle stations available as well as seating in the restaurant for you.
Please, may we reiterate that this is not a free pour event. On arrival, you will exchange your ticket to receive a set of vouchers worth 20 drams (10ml/1cl pour) which will then be exchanged for a dram of your choice on the exhibitor tables. Each dram will have its own voucher worth between 1 and 5 tokens so you. A full list of the drams will be available to pick up on your arrival as well as your Glencairn tasting glass. Please do drink responsibly.
The event will run until 5 pm with the last drams being called at 4:45 pm, any vouchers that you have left cannot be exchanged for a monetary amount.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all on Saturday but if for any reason you cannot make it, please do let us know as we have built up quite a substantial waitlist for tickets and it would be great to offer them to others if you can no longer attend. Your tickets for the Grand Tasting will of course be refunded if this is the case.
See you on Saturday at 1pm!
The Dornoch Whisky Festival Team
