Whisky Colours Festival

THE WHISKY COLOURS FESTIVAL

BY THE WHISKY SHOP DUFFTOWN

8 - 12 October 2020

The second Whisky Colours Festival will be held from 8 to 12 October 2020.  It is a celebration of all things whisky and is centred in Dufftown, the malt whisky capital of the world.  The festival will allow you to get up close and personal with some of the biggest names in the whisky industry.  Our website is the place to go for updates (www.whiskycoloursfestival.com).

We have been inspired by the vast range of whisky colours that are mirrored in the beauty of the phenomenal autumn scenery of Dufftown and the surrounding area as our woodlands display their stunning colours and the bright golden barley in the fields. Our aim is to bring you extra special whisky experiences with an autumnal theme that will be truly something to remember.

We will announce events here as they are finalised with the full programme being launched by early June 2020. Tickets will go on sale 1st July.

Here is an idea what we will be organising for 2020 from our 2019 programme.

Every day of the festival from 10:00 to 16:00 - Coffee with a Special Shot.  Dufftown Glassworks will be offering their usual top class coffees and light bites.  In addition, for the festival, they will be offering coffee and whisky pairings for you to enjoy.  No need to book just turn up between 10:00 and 16:00 and ask for your coffee of choice and an extra special shot.  Prices vary.
