Grand Tasting

We’re excited to (finally) announce this year’s Grand Tasting tickets!

Make sure you’ve circled Saturday, October 26th, on your calendars! The 2024 lineup will feature a mix of renowned distilleries and emerging brands, promising a delightful blend of beloved classics and innovative new whiskies. And remember, if your plans change later in the year, just let us know, and we’ll refund your ticket with no questions asked.

Your ticket will include voucher tokens for you to exchange for 10ml pours on the day, as well as a Glencairn glass to enjoy your whisky in.

This year, we’re doing something a little different… We’ll have two sessions: one in the morning from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM and another in the afternoon from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM. This change will allow us to host even more events in our Dornoch Whisky Festival program. But don’t worry about which session to purchase for, as any event that may take place during the Grand Tasting will be duplicated. For example, if we pop on an event between 12 – 2 it will be repeated later between 4 – 6 so that everyone who wants to can attend without clashes.  It also gives you time to attend any dinner bookings you may have!

Please be aware that each ticket grants entry to only one session, either morning or afternoon. If you purchase tickets for both sessions and attempt to attend both, entry will be denied, and unfortunately, refunds will not be issued.

As always, if you have any questions about the event or the festival in general, please don’t hesitate to ask.


Date: October 26, 2024
Held At: Dornoch Whisky Festival Marquee

Please note that we take responsible drinking very seriously and expect you will too.

All entrants must be over the age of 18 and we will have Challenge 25 policy in place.
