Included in the ticket price is the chance to sample and learn about single malt whisky, blended whisky and Bourbon. Whiskies on offer include single malts such as Ardbeg and AnCnoc and premium blends such as Whyte and Mackay. Whisky writer, Dominic Roskrow will also be on hand to give festival goers a chance to try some of the World Whisky Masters medal winners, featuring hard to find whiskies from around the world.

Whisky sampling will take place between 4pm and 7pm at which point the music will start across two rooms at The Garage. Festival goers will be able to move at their leisure from one distiller's stand to another, sampling whichever whiskies they wish to taste. Pure aims to educate people on Whisky in a fun and informative way and the festival is a unique opportunity to sample a number of fantastic whiskies in a relaxed, informal setting.

Please note this event is strictly over 18s.
