Distilled returns to celebrate the best of Speyside’s larder

DIstilled Festival is returning to Elgin Town Hall

TICKETS have gone on sale for Distilled, a three-day showcase of the very best artisanal food and drink the region has to offer, organised by the team behind The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, one of the world’s largest whisky events.

This will be the first time in three years the event will return to Moray Speyside after it was forced to cancel due to the pandemic. Organisers have included an additional day to the usual two-day festival due to demand.

The three-day food and drink celebration, held in Elgin Town Hall, will take place from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 September and is expected to welcome over 1,500 visitors. Over 35 local vendors will showcase their products and ticket holders will have the chance to enjoy six different samples including those from world famous distilleries during the event.

“Distilled brings together the very best that Speyside has to offer. World famous distilleries, local brewers, craft gin and vodka producers and local artisan food stalls will all be under one roof, celebrating the region’s impressive offering.”

“Although relatively new, the event has cemented itself as a popular date in the local calendar and after a three year break we are making the final preparations to ensure that this year’s Distilled is bigger and better than ever. We are certain that tickets will sell out quickly, so I’d advise everyone to snap theirs up early to avoid disappointment.”

Throughout the three-day showcase, several masterclasses will be taking place including:

  •  The Glenlivet Single Cask Tasting – Chivas Brothers
  • Exploring the Breadth and Depth of Connoisseurs Choice – Gordon & Macphail
  • Upcoming Releases with Iain Allan, Global Brand Ambassador – Glen Moray
  • Caorunn Gin Distillery Botanical Deconstructed Nosing and Tasting – Caorunn Gin

Tickets for general admission, and the classes, are available to purchase from the 9 of August at 12 noon. Please visit the Distilled website for full programme details and to book a place.
