The Islay Festival Committee has a fabulous event for you this year. We have managed to get Dave Broom to Islay and he will be hosting the Ultimate Feis Ile Tasting event. This event is a special one off chance to sample all of this years Islay Feis Ile bottlings. The Festival Committee is also very privileged to have the Ballygrant Inn, Whisky Bar of the Year winners, to provide food pairings for each of the whisky samples.
Dave Broom is from Glasgow and has spent his whole working life in the world of drink, from a whisky bottling line, to a wine merchant, a craft brewers pub, drinks trade writing, and Australian wineries, before finally, in 1995, becoming a writer specialising in spirits. He has written twelve books including the World Atlas of Whisky, a “landmark publication”. He is chief engineer for the go-to online site scotchwhisky.com, and writes for a large number of international titles.
Needless to say that we are over the moon with this unique evening during the 2019 Islay Festival. The Ultimate Feis Ile Tasting will be held on Tuesday the 28th of May at 7.30pm in Ballygrant Hall. Tickets for this fantastic event are £150 and are limited. Tickets can be purchased and paid for online on our Online Booking Page
