Whisky Colours Festival


8 - 11 OCTOBER 2020

This October sees the second Whisky Colours Festival in Dufftown.  Last year we brought you an intimate whisky experience.  This year we have had to adapt.  Our hybrid festival will bring you a series of whisky experiences that you can enjoy here in Speyside or from your own home.

We are working with a number of companies to create whisky tasting packs for hosted on-line tastings that you can enjoy from your accommodation here in Speyside in the midst of its fantastic autumn scenery.  As these tastings are on-line, if you cannot be here, you can enjoy them at home as well.

With many businesses and facilities reopened there is a lot to see and do on Speyside and we are ready to give you a warm welcome.  There is also the beauty of the phenomenal autumn scenery of Dufftown and the surrounding area, as our woodlands display their stunning colours which inspired our festival.  Of course, we have lots of whisky as well.  But we understand that some people are unable or unwilling to travel to Scotland this October, so we have adapted our festival to be enjoyed anywhere.

The line-up of on-line tastings is currently:

Thursday 8 October

19:00 - Glenfarclas with Louise Gallagher and Peter Donnelly
