Feis Ile

Held on Scotland’s most famous whisky island, The Islay Festival of Music and Malt – or Feis Ile – has been hosting whisky lovers from across the globe for more than 30 years. The festival, which is held annually on the last week of May in Islay, features traditional music, ceilidhs, Gaelic lessons, golf, bowling and whisky tastings. Since every single Islay distillery opens its doors throughout the week, it is described as the “most unique” whisky festival in the world.

Feis Ile 2017 will be held from 26 May – 3 June.

  2. You’re missing Whiskey On Ice, the premier whiskey festival in the U.S. upper midwest. Whiskey On Ice is an annual celebration, held in early April in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year 900 attendees will have the opportunity to sample whiskeys from the 120 distilleries from around the world that will be represented at our Grand Tasting. In addition, Whiskey On Ice offers attendees the option to attend any of the four Whiskey Masterclasses being held prior to the Grand Tasting. All attendees may partake of an outdoor cigar and cocktail lounge, as well as a silent auction of whiskeys and whiskey-related items, the proceeds of which benefit a local area non-profit.
