About

Under the spectacular roof of The Briggait, one of Glasgow’s most iconic buildings, situated on the bank of the River Clyde we will showcase an authentic and credible Scottish drink tasting experience in an unexpected and memorable way. 2000 people will flock to the Scottish Drinks Festival over four sessions to get a taste of this truly intimate experience.

Scotland has a remarkable worldwide reputation for producing world class drinks from whisky to gin to craft ale and more recently rum and fruit wines. The evolution and tales of the drinks industry are woven into the fabric of Scottish history. We want to let you taste these tipples and hear these stories.

Over 150 different types of drinks will be available to sample including Makar Glasgow Gin, Strathearn, Deanston, Bunnahabhain, Old J Rums & cocktails, Fallen Beer, Elephant Gin, Fraiser of Scotland, Savanha cider, Poleta wine, Shetland Reel and One Gin.

The experts will be on hand to let you sample the drinks and learn more about their specialty gin, whisky, rum or other tipple treats. Scotland’s latest, greatest and most exciting drinks brands will serve taster size signature samples and The Scottish Gantry, a new local specialist wine and spirits retailer will be the bottle retailer on the day should you want to grab a bottle to take home with you.

The festival will also feature fresh culinary delights from some of the city’s best pop up street food specialists. From the good eating and the familiar, with Scottish twists and beyond. There will also be an option for those with a sweet tooth or a passion for a palletizer. Bold new flavours and innovative combinations will enrich your afternoon’s drink sampling whilst tantalising your taste buds.

But the entertainment doesn’t stop there as each tasting session will be accompanied by live music from some local acoustic artists.
