The biggest and best celebration of whiskey returns to Belfast on 12 & 13 November 2021. Expanding to even more sessions, don't miss this fantastic event at the Waterfront Hall.
After two very successful sell out years The Whiskey Social will expand to bring even more distilleries to Belfast and will again have masterclasses, allowing an in depth look at malts from some of the most popular names in whiskey.
Guests will be given a Whiskey Social branded Tuath tasting glass, festival programme and bottle of water on entry and are then free to approach stalls from dozens of whiskey brands. The brand ambassadors can explain their products and give drams to sample - you could find a new favourite and try malts you've never tasted before.
The onsite shop allows visitors to purchase full size bottles to enjoy at home, while tasty hot grub will be available to help soak up the drams.
"We are expanding the festival for 2020, bringing more distilleries and introducing trade sessions which we hope should really help boost the local whisky industry and be an annual showcase for all concerned. It's going to be bigger and better and Belfast certainly loves a dram and made us feel so welcome." Andy Ure, Director of The Drinks Social Co
Last year brands exhibited included Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey, Teeling Whiskey and Echlinville Distillery.
Last years' sell out Whiskey Social event was fantastic - don't miss out this year, it's back bigger and better than ever before!
