Arran Malt & Music Festival 2018

 We've had quite a lot of our Arran Whisky friends all over the world get in touch in recent weeks to find out some more detail on our annual Malt & Music Festival.  We know that many of you plan to come from far afield, so here are some dates for your diary to help you get planning your visit to Lochranza next year!

The Arran Malt & Music Festival will take place next year Friday 29th June – Sunday 1st July. The White Stag Dinner will be on Friday 29th June and the main day event will be on Saturday 30th June, with the Survivors Lunch on Sunday 1st July.

Tickets will go on sale in February from  We will post info here on our web site and on our social pages (FB and Twitter primarily) to keep you updated.  You will be able to purchase tickets for the White Stag Dinner and the individual masterclasses that take place during the day event on the Saturday. Past masterclasses have included a Whisky & Food Masterclass, the ever popular Stillmen’s Masterclass and Mavericks of Maturation Masterclass. The 2018 line-up will not disappoint!

Our most popular class, the Ultimate Masterclass, selects the Festival bottling for the following year and is restricted to 10 places. A ballot is held for places in this class. You will be invited to note your interest for a place shortly before the tickets go on sale in February.


In 2018 we will have band Tide Lines playing at our Festival ceilidh on the Saturday night, along with our resident whisky band James and the Staves. This looks set to be another fantastic Festival and we look forward to seeing many more of our Arran Whisky friends from near and far to join us for a weekend of friendship and memorable drams.
