A journey into joy

Islay

Bringing the celebrations to you: Follow us at The Spirit of Speyside Festival and The Islay Festival of Malt & Music, share a celebratory dram or join us at one of our festival events. Whatever your festival plans this year, we hope we can celebrate together.


LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!

We know that both Speyside and Islay have their superfans – are you dedicated to honeyed and elegant drams or do you have a penchant for peat, campfires on the beach and marshmallows dipped in oyster brine? Are you a Craigellachie Crusader or an Islay Avenger?

Let battle commence, throw yourself into our debate – VOTE NOW and show your superfan region allegiance.
