Below, you will find the programme of events that we had at last year’s 2022 Dornoch Whisky Festival!
The Dornoch Whisky Festival 2023 programme is just around the corner, and we are so excited to announce that the programme and tickets will be available soon. While we put the finishing touches on this year’s event, have a browse through last year’s festival to remind you of the type of events to come.
From tastings, dinners, and masterclasses, the Dornoch Whisky Festival offers a range of experiences. Whether you’re a seasoned whisky enthusiast or simply curious about the drink, the festival provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy and educate yourself with Scotland’s finest spirit.
