This first ever Fife Whisky Festival will take place on Saturday the 10th March 2018, at the Corn Exchange in Cupar, Scotland – if you need directions –please ask. Justine Hazlehurst, founder of Kask Whisky, and Karen Somerville, founder of Angels’ Share Glass, joined forces earlier this year to organise the festival and bring whisky back to the Kingdom of Fife.
The Fife Whisky Festival will showcase the renaissance of whisky-making in Fife, bringing together whisky connoisseurs and beginners with the best whisky producers from Fife and beyond. With over 25 different exhibitors, including the Kingsbarns Distillery, Morrison and Mackay, Glen Moray, Isle of Arran, Glasgow Distillery, Wemyss, Lindores (no whisky as yet), Eden Mill, Fraiser, Murray MacDavid, Creative whisky co, Springbank, Loch Lomond, Glen Scotia, Paul John, Adelphi, Islay Boys, Strathearn, Boutique whisky co and Douglas laing, more to be added we think, there will be a huge range of whiskies to try. With so many people there we know, so many drams we love, let’s order the taxi home now!
Vince Fusaro, of the Luvians Bottle Shop, the festival’s official retailer, said: “From Friar John Cor in 1494 to, amongst others, farmer Francis Cuthbert (Daft Mill) in the present day, whisky certainly has come home to Fife. I’m immensely proud to be in the whisky world and to be playing a central part in the Fife Whisky Festival.”
Fife-based musical duo The Coaltown Daisies, famous for producing The Whisky Song for World Whisky Day, are sure to get everyone’s toes tapping as they enjoy a dram or two.
