Glasgow’s Whisky Festival 2023 is Sold Out!

Huge thanks to everyone who bought tickets. We had a phenomenal response this year and we’re unfortunately now completely sold out.

We are always deeply appreciative of the support for our wee event and look forward to seeing you all in November!

Session 1 Is Sold Out And No Tickets Left At Bon Accord For Either Session!

We had an unprecedented demand for tickets when they went on sale on Saturday and Session 1 sold out completely in 10 minutes!

Later that afternoon we also sold out completely of both sessions at Bon Accord too. You can still get a ticket for Session 2 at Tickets Scotland if you are quick but they’re going to sell out there very soon as well:

Thank you for your continued support for our festival and see you in November!

We’re very excited to be working alongside one of our local partners and welcome back The Glasgow Distillery Co. as Headline Sponsor of this year’s festival with their Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The Glasgow Distillery will be bringing their Glasgow 1770 bar where you can sample whiskies from their Signature Range of single malts: The Original, Peated and Triple Distilled. Visit the bar, meet the makers and understand how they produce three very different styles of award-winning single malt whisky under the one roof.

The distillery will also have a second bar where you can try the other innovative spirits they produce at the distillery. Each of their products has a back story which is rooted in Glasgow’s heritage and culture, not to mention they taste fantastic too. Visit The Glasgow Distillery bar and sample their Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, Banditti Club Rum, G52 Botanical Vodka and their Makar Gin.

Liam Hughes, CEO of The Glasgow Distillery, commented:

“We’re thrilled to once again be sponsoring the festival with our flagship whisky, Glasgow 1770. Glasgow’s Whisky Festival has a special place in our hearts as it’s one of the first festivals we attended with our new whisky back in 2018, to a brilliant reception. Ever since then the festival has been a central fixture in our calendar and we cannot wait to once again be sharing drams with those both local and who have travelled to attend. We’re all looking forward to it immensely.”

New Date for Glasgow’s Whisky Festival 2021

Announcement time!

We’re moving our festival to Saturday the 19th of February 2022.

After much thought and many meetings in Bon Accord (any excuse) we feel that it will be in everyone’s best interests to move the date. We know that many of you plan your visit to our event well in advance booking trains, hotels and even flights and we also want to be able to properly prepare to bring you the best festival we can. Moving from November to February allows us all to confidently plan the day once we see how autumn and winter go.

Hopefully this isn’t too much of a disappointment to you but if things progress well towards the end of the year then we should be back with a bang in February and all drams blazing.

We’ll have more updates for you in the months ahead plus details of ticket sales as soon as we’re ready to go with those.

Take care and thanks for your patience.
