Welcome to the Whisky Galore Tour 2021 and the sad news is that many events and festivals are still not operating normally because of the social distancing and lock-down requirements due to COVID-19. Many are running as virtual events but with audience participation and live tastings.

The Spirit Of Speyside Whisky Festival is online at its usual time of the year (29th April - 2nd May) and live, subject to COVID regulations, from 3rd - 8th November.

Following an amazing visit to the Islay Festival in 2019 we had booked accommodation immediately for 2021. At the time there was no accommodation readily available for 2020 but that turned out to be immaterial. However, even the 2021 visit has been postponed.

However, the Islay Feis Ile is now online and the distillery programme is here and summarised below:

  • Ardnahoe, Friday 28th May
  • Lagavulin, Saturday 29th May
  • Bruichladdich, Sunday 30th May
  • Caol Ila, Islay Ales, Nerabus, Monday 31st May
  • Laphroaig, Tuesday 1st June
  • Bowmore, Wednesday 2nd June
  • Kilchoman, Thursday 3rd June
  • Bunnahabhain, Friday 4th June
  • Ardbeg, Saturday 5th June
  • Jura, Lussa, Sunday 6th June
