After a sell-out success last year, the National Whisky Festival will make a trip back to Edinburgh for another edition of its annual tasting events – returning to the Capital’s popular events complex Summerhall on December 10.

Scotland's fastest-growing cultural festival continues its return to live exhibition events in 2022 with this announcement of a new Edinburgh edition following the festival’s debut there last year, as well as recent success in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness.

According to organisers, the Edinburgh event will feature distillers, bottlers and aficionados from across the industry spectrum.

“Now, building on the success of our debut Edinburgh event last year, we absolutely can't wait to be back in Scotland's capital city alongside some of the world's best distilleries, musicians and bartenders."
