Everything But Whisky – Session 1
Welcome to the 1st Fèis Gin, Rum & Beer Festival 2022.
Join us at The Machrie Hotel & Golf Links on Thursday, 2nd June for local music, cocktail bar, food and of course ............... the tastings !
There’s so much more to Islay & Jura than its smoky malts. Did you know there are 4 gin distilleries, a rum and both Islay and Jura ales – that’s more than just ‘ice and a slice’ to be enjoyed.
Visitors to our Gin, Rum & Beer Festival will find out that there’s plenty to tantalise the taste buds. There will be music to entertain you (dancing is optional), BBQ, cocktail bar and plenty of tasting.
You can sip samples from our leading island makers and craft distillers, and watch our mixologists shake up a storm over at the cocktail bar. Whether you’re a seasoned connoisseur or completely new to the spirit, there’s something to please all palates.
So grab a ticket and immerse yourself in the wonderful world of gin, rum and beer!
