The biggest day of the Laddie calendar… our open day during the Feis Ile Malt and Music festival. Not to be missed if you’re lucky enough to be on the island at this time of year, we have a full day of responsible dramming and eclectic bands for you to enjoy.
For those who have secured the coveted tickets to Adam’s masterclass, the tasting will start at 11.00am and is expected to last until 12noon. Doors will open for masterclass attendees only at 10.30am. All tickets are now sold out. If you wish to view Adam’s masterclass, we will also be livestreaming the event through YouTube. More details to come.
Main gates will open at 12.30pm, entry is £5 and includes a complimentary dram. This years event will feature:
Salsa Celtica | The Blueswater | Tide Lines | Coaltown Daisies | Isle of Islay Pipe Band | Ella Edgars Dancers | Botanist Cocktail Tent | Malt Bar | Islay Ales | Food Stalls | Islay Arts and Crafts
