WEE COUNTY whisky fans can look forward to the annual Clackmannanshire’s Whisky Festival coming back this weekend

Held at Alloa Town Hall, tickets are still available for the evening session on Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1.

Over 30 exhibitors will be in attendance at the celebration, allowing visitors to sample some of the finest whiskies from Scotland and the rest of the world.

Director Serena Lindsay said: “We are extremely excited to welcome ticket holders to Alloa to the 2nd Clackmannanshire’s Whisky Festival on March 31 and April 1.

“Our unique approach to the festival delivery in terms of whisky, wellness and heritage really struck a chord with people last year and this year as experience promises to be even better with 35 exhibitors.”

This year, the festival is being sponsored by the Neil’s Hugs Foundation, a charity devoted to supporting families and friends affected by suicide.

“At the heart of Clackmannanshire’s Whisky Festival is its support for mental health awareness and wellbeing”, Serena added.

“Using the event platform, the organising team, partners, sponsors, and exhibitors all help in the event’s efforts to promote the work of our male suicide prevention and loss support charity partner, Neil’s Hugs Foundation.

“By attending the festival, attendees are also helping raise awareness and giving support to this vital work.”

By purchasing a session ticket, visitors will gain access to sampling sessions, a history exhibition and a goodie bag on arrival.

There will also be exclusive tickets available to masterclasses and a once in a lifetime chance to sample rare whiskies from ghost distilleries at Clackmannanshire’s Heritage Showcase.

The Wee County has a very rich history in whisky production – detailed to visitors by exploring the past of the Kettenpans distillery and the birthplace of John Jameson, founder of best-selling Irish whiskey brand, Jameson.
