The months are flying by and it will soon be time for our favourite time of year, Feis Ile – the Islay Whisky Festival 2018! We’ll be planning some extra special whisky tasting events to take place on Islay during Feis Ile 2018 and we would love to see you there!
Feis Ile 2018
The 2018 Feis Ile is set to begin on Friday 26th May and run for just over a week until Saturday 2nd June. Just like last year, we will be hosting a number of whisky masterclasses. Our tasting events on Islay are very special because we show whiskies from each of the distilleries as we are not tied to any of them. Our tasting events are therefore biased to one thing, Islay whiskies!
We are working closely with the owners of a large luxury house in breathtaking surroundings on Islay, and together we are putting together a package which we will publish soon.
We will be offering an exclusive hosted trip on Islay where a group of 8 or 10 whisky enthusiasts will be able to stay with us for the entire week, with all food included along with transport to and from all distillery events. Having been the distillery manager at Caol Ila, I will be the perfect host for the guests during the week.

We are also planning to host a week long Guided Islay Distilleries Experience week commencing Saturday 24th March 2018, click here for more details! I’ll be your host the entire week as we visit all of the Islay distilleries, join tours, tastings and masterclasses and enjoy all that Islay has to offer.
Feis Ile 2018 Distillery Events
There are currently 8 distilleries on Islay, and soon to be 9 once the new Ardnahoe Distillery is built. There is also a distillery on Jura, the neighbouring island, Jura Distillery. The other distilleries which will be holding special events throughout the week are Ardbeg, Bruichladdich, Bunnahabhain, Lagavulin, Caol Ila, Bowmore, Kilchoman, Laphroaig and Jura.
The distillery events programmes tend to be released a couple of months before the whisky festival commences. Once published, you will be able to book tickets for events at each distillery, but be sure to keep an eye out as they book up very quickly!
We hope to see you at one of our tasting events at Feis Ile 2018!
Slainte and happy drams!
