Book now


We are packing the room with three types of whiskey for you to try out to your heart’s content:
Scotch: The best from Scottish whisky distilleries- from the well known to the smaller independents that you are going to fall in love with.
Bourbon: America’s finest bourbons are here to show you what they can offer. Flavoured and packed with variety!
Worldwide Whiskey: Here is where you may discover a whiskey from the Netherlands, Sweden, Taiwan and Japan that you never knew existed!

The Whiskey Affair was born out of the idea that whiskey is a vast subject matter that needs to be enjoyed, relished and discovered – whilst having fun!
Our criteria for the learning process was to educate ourselves whilst in beautiful surroundings; listening to music that we love and in the company of all our friends (some of whom may not be as excited about whiskey as we are to start with).

These are the core ingredients of what we are basing our events on and we’d love you to come on our journey with us.
As we are a new company your feedback is imperative, and we are hoping to shape the future of our love affair with whiskey with you in mind.

Our events work in a similar manner to beer festivals. We have a cashless bar which operates on tokens, which will be purchasable throughout the evening at the venue. Purchase as many tokens as you like and simply have them stamped when you are keen to select your drams. Some of the drinks may be rarer and cost more than one token but will be clearly marked when you are at the bar.

If there is a bottle that takes your fancy then why not take it home with you? Whole bottles of all the varieties will be available to purchase on the night.
If you are not sure that whisky is your drink – but your friends are coming to the night, don’t worry! We have a cocktail bar just for you where you can immerse yourself into the world-subtly, and dip your toe in bit by bit.

Every festival will be different- but guest speakers/tasting sessions and music are a feature of the world that we are creating so check each event listing to see who will be there!
