Spirit of Speyside set to return in 2021

THE Spirit of Speyside whisky festival is set to return next year, organisers have announced.

The six-day festival is due to take place between 28th April and 3rd May, 2021; tickets will go on sale on 1st March, with a full programme to be unveiled in February. Organisers said COVID-19 measures will be in place in order to ensure the event can proceed.

Festival chairman James Campbell said: “We are very excited about being back in business for 2021.

“Our distillers, who have done a great job to keep on working through the pandemic, supporting local communities with much sought after hand sanitiser and in so many other ways are now working on plans for their events along with our other event providers.

“Even if social distancing is still in place in late April I am confident they will come up with solutions to provide numerous brilliant events and we look forward to giving a very warm Speyside welcome to all of our new and returning UK and international guests in 2021.”
