Oban Distillery and Oban Live team up for dram good VIP offer

Oban Distillery will sponsor the VIP area at Argyll’s biggest outdoor live music concert Oban Live this June, the event has announced.

Described by the event as an “exciting and very fitting partnership’, the distillery and tourism attraction, which is less than a mile away from the event’s Mossfield Stadium venue, are gearing up to showcase their globally renowned Oban 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky to Oban Live VIP ticket holders.

The complete VIP ticket package includes a free Oban Scotch Whisky Cocktail on arrival, a VIP arrivals desk, access to the VIP area, access to the VIP bar and luxury toilets, an exclusive VIP lanyard and free guaranteed entry before midnight to the Official After party at The View, Oban.  A special Fringe launch night is also planned for Thursday June 6 at the Distillery on Stafford Street in Oban which VIP ticket holders will also have free access to. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.

The whisky will be available for all to enjoy at Oban Live as both the whisky cocktail, which will be the event’s official cocktail for the weekend, and drams of the Oban 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky will be available to buy at the main arena bar and at the VIP bar. Staff from Oban Distillery will also be on hand behind the bar to share some insight and history behind the making of the malt Oban Whisky and the Distillery.

Daniel Gillespie, Managing Director for Oban Live said: “We are delighted that the Oban Distillery and Oban Live are coming together to promote historic and modern Oban culture to visitors from all over. We share a passion in delivering high quality visitor products and experiences whilst connecting with the local area, so it makes perfect sense to be entering this VIP partnership with such a well-established whisky brand and visitor centre.”

He added: “VIP tickets are selling out fast for 2019 with only around 30 two-day VIP and a couple of Saturday VIP left, as of Tuesday morning, and so we urge anyone wishing to take advantage of the full Oban Live VIP experience this year to get in quick.”

Callum Rew, Site Manager at Oban Distillery added: “We are delighted to partner with this year’s Oban Live and look forward to welcoming visitors to the distillery.   Oban Distillery was founded in 1794 and plays an important part in the history and growth of the town.”
