Whisky lovers are in for a treat when Southport Whisky Festival takes place this July!
The event takes place on Friday, 30th July and Saturday, 31st July.
Southport Whisky Festival will be held at various venues in Southport town centre, with some additional events also taking place online.
Southport Whisky Club member Peter Hunt said: “Did you know we are hosting a Whisky Festival right here in town? We’ve got 14 distilleries coming to host tastings in our local pubs and bars on Saturday 31st July from 1pm for a Whisky Treasure Trail!
“It promises to be a fantastic event and will bring some much needed income to our town after the last year or so of doom and gloom!
“Myself and Glenfarclas owner George Grant will be at The Guest House from 1pm on the day to give you all your Treasure Maps and a dram of Glenfarclas to send you on your way!
“At such time as you arrive at Remedy on Lord Street, further complimentary samples from the Distillery based there will await you.
“At each of the other venues indicated, you will be required to present your map and pay the bartender £4 to access the whisky treasure held within. We are not telling you who is where, that’s for you to discover J
“I really hope to see some of you there to share a dram or two with!”
