Bunnahabhain distillery helps whisky lovers celebrate Fèis Ìle in spirit with ‘Feis at Home’…
It’s one of the most anticipated calendar dates for whisky fans who descend on Islay’s shores year after year. However, the cancellation of this Spring’s world-famous Feis Ile festival won’t stop Bunnahabhain from throwing its (virtual) doors open to all.
Physical celebrations may be on hold due to social distancing guidelines. Nontheless, Bunnahabhain is inviting whisky fans to ‘Feis at Home’. Visit the shores of Islay via a special live tasting of not one, but two exceptional new festival editions.
Hosted by renowned whisky expert Dave Broom, Bunnahabhain Distillery Manager Andrew Brown will be joined by Master Blender Julianne Fernandez, Master Distiller Stephen Woodcock and Visitor Centre Manager Dr Billy Sinclair for the live stream on Friday May 29 from 8pm (BST). The group will lead whisky fans through a tasting and take part in a panel discussion about the two limited-edition expressions being released to mark the occasion.
Tasting kits available to purchase from the Bunnahabhain website will allow people to follow along from the comfort of their home. And it wouldn’t be Feis Ile without a few surprises as exclusive details on a new product will be revealed live during the tasting.
Ahead of the tasting, Visitor Centre Manager, Dr Billy Sinclair will take friends of Bunnahabhain on a Facebook Live tour around the distillery and island – a chance to get the full Feis Ile experience from afar. Eagle eyed viewers will also have the chance to win a trip to the world-famous festival in person in 2021, with competition details announced on the first ‘tour’ to go live on Bunnahabhain’s Facebook page at 10am (BST) on Friday the 29th of May.
Bunnahabhain’s virtual ‘Feis at Home’ events will take place on Friday, May 29. A virtual tasting and panel discussion of two new festival editions will take place at 8pm (BST). Live streams from the distillery on Islay will take place at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6.30pm (BST).
