The Whisky Lounge and Oval Space presents The London Whisky Weekender

What better way to start your journey into the world of whisky than a three-day festival celebrating the finest whiskies and expertise that the industry has to offer. You will find almost every style of whisky represented here, with drams from all over the world on tasting. For one weekend a year, we bring the distilleries to you!

Here’s what each session ticket includes…

- The Festival Guide, with extensive tasting notes and distillery guides

- Under The Counter Drams Special whiskies at selected stands can be sampled in exchange for a token that can be bought separately.

- Special Workshops classes for a more intimate and detailed look at selected distilleries and whiskies including tastings from the likes of Laphroaig and Talisker.

FEATURED WHISKIES: Johnnie Walker - Jameson - Macallan - Glenlivet - Talisker - Auchentoshan - Chivas Regal - Lagavulin - Bowmore - Laphroaig - Highland Park - Balblair - Kilchoman - Aberlour - Longmorn - Black Bottle - Ancnoc - Ron Diplomatico - Berry Bros. & Rudd - Elements of Islay - Glen Garioch - Old Pulteney - Paul John - Tweeddale - That Boutique-y Whisky Co.- Rock Town - Scotch Malt Whisky Society - Dewars - Aberfeldy - Dewar Rattray.

If this is your first time to one of our whisky festivals, here’s how it works…

Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple).

Every exhibitor should know their whiskies inside out and it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge. They’ll be able to answer all and any whisky-related questions you may have and will happily explain why their whisky is so damn tasty.

Please note this is an 18+ event. ID required.
