Our Whisky virtual festival

Educational platform Our Whisky kicked off its first online whisky festival yesterday (30 April). The event will also run at 6pm-7.30pm BST on 7 May, 14 May and 21 May.

The digital festival aims to connect whisky fans with their favourite distillers and blenders across the world, while raising money for those affected by the pandemic.

Each week ticket holders will be sent five unmarked whisky samples and will then be invited to join a live-streamed tasting, which will be hosted on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The style, region and age of each whisky will be kept a secret until the tasting.

The event will be live-streamed on Our Whisky’s website and its Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels. All funds from the event will be donated to The Drinks Trust charity.
