NIP festival has ‘record sales’

A SCOTTISH craft drinks festival has recorded a five-year ticket sales record, organisers have claimed.

The NIP festival, formerly the Inverness Whisky Festival, is said to have attracted increased visitors following a major re-brand which brought whisky and gin producers under one roof.

The five-day event included masterclasses, drink and food pairings, tours around the city, music and an industry exposition at Bogbain Farm, Inverness.
