West Coast Whisky Feis 2019
'Oban's Whisky & Gin Festival'
The 2nd West Coast Whisky Feis - ‘Oban’s Whisky & Gin Show’ - is set to take place on Saturday the 14th of September 2019 at The View Oban, from 1pm till 6pm.
The Whisky Coast
The festival is in honour of Scotland’s west coast distillers, all gathered in one place to celebrate the rich tradition surrounding the production of some of the highest quality spirits found worldwide.
Exhibitors range from all the way up the northern west coast including the likes of Springbank, Kilchoman, Bruichladdich, Tobermory, Talisker and of course, Oban Distillery.
Gin distillers from Jura, Islay, Glasgow and elsewhere will be showcasing their flavoursome goods alongside some of the regions best food.
The co-organisers of the event, Euan Finlayson and James Galbraith are both involved in the local whisky and gin industry and are dedicated to creating a memorable day where patrons are able to not only try the goods produced in this region, but also able to converse with the people directly involved in the creation of these products.
Situated in the heart of Oban, The View lives up to its name by providing panoramic views overlooking Oban bay and beyond. There is no better venue to take in the coasts best spirits whilst contemplating the skill, craft and effort taken by all involved. There will also be traditional music performed by some of the regions most talented artists during and after the event.
We are also delighted to have Oban Distillery co-hosting the ‘Old vs new Oban Whisky’ tasting located in the distilleries warehouse on the day. This involves an exclusive experience with Distillery Manager Callum Rew and Oban Whisky archivist James Galbraith in an in-depth tasting of Oban whisky, dating back to the 1960’s up to current bottlings.
Tickets are strictly limited and available at an extra cost.
Tickets for the event cost £30pp which includes samples from every exhibitor, food, free entry to our ‘whisky nosing competition’ and special offers on all products on sale in our on-site Feis shop.
