Arran Whisky Festival Malt & Music Flyer 2021
What a difference a year makes! It seems like only yesterday we were planning huge celebrations for our 25th Anniversary which quickly turned into online drams and banter. As much as we are loving seeing so many of you visiting the island and coming to say hello in Lagg and Lochranza, we decided to keep our festival virtual this year to guarantee yours and our team’s safety while appreciating the easing of restrictions. We have been busy working on a full and interesting schedule which now has live events with tasting packs available to buy and local music. We can’t wait to share some drams on screen and have a wonderful weekend all together!
