Some things are just meant to go together, strawberries and cream, movies and popcorn and rock music and whisky. Now some clever team has finally put the final two together with the Pure Music and Whisky festival – a festival more about whisky than wellies.
There will be an awesome line up of whisky loving acts including the likes of The Raveonettes, James Yorkston’s, Electric Soft Parade’s, Smoke Fairies, Steve Mason, Kassidy and Charlie Waller.
The line up of whiskies is even more impressive, with a range of single malts, blended whiskies and bourbons including Whyte and Mackay, Talisker, Cooley, Ardbeg and AnCnoc.
Whether you are new to whisky, a budding connoisseur or like me a WSET Diploma student anxious for extra tasting practice, you’ll find plenty to enjoy at the Pure Music and Whisky Festival including tutored tastings of World Whisky Masters medal winners by Dominic Roskrow.
The ticket price includes eight whisky tokens, tastings takes place between 4-7pm and music between 4-10pm.
I have my Spirits Diploma exam coming up soon and this will be some great tasting experience. But of all the whisky tastings I’ll be dragging my hubby to this month, I have a feeling this’ll be the one he’ll enjoys the most.
The Pure Festival has been created by whisky social networking site Whisky Connosr www.connosr.com and Brand New Music www.wearebrandnewmusic.co.uk

I arrived back in Madrid, Spain last weekend after four long months away. I’ve collected a lot of stories on my travels
