Drambusters Whisky Festival 2022


Our 10th Drambusters Whisky Festival will be held in June 2022 if the current situation allows. We will start to sell tickets as soon as we are able.

All 2020 tickets issued so far will be valid for the 2022 event. However, please contact us if you wish a refund of your tickets for the 2020 event. We are honouring refunds for as long as we can.

We hope you are safe and well and look forward to hopefully seeing you in 2022

We are still open for business, and are hosting a variety of online tastings which can be viewed and purchased online here.. This will be an ongoing format and is so far proving very popular!


The 2019 event was a great day and everybody enjoyed the extensive range of whiskies and other spirits that were available to taste.

Tickets are £38 this year and as with last year, you will receive a voucher in your goodie bag for £5 off your purchase (over £30) from our on-site shop.


There will be a Master Class  at 1pm and tickets for this are on sale in the shop. We will let you know the host of this when we have that information.

The Festival will run the same as previous years. There will be the on-site cafeteria in the Duncan Rooms and the stands will be spread over the Main Hall and the Gilchrist Room as in previous years.

Once again there will be buses available to ferry you all back into town from 3pm and this will run for a couple of hours.

From the town, service 5 will take you to Easterbrook Hall, or close by within the Crichton Campus. See the timetable below. There are also various local taxi firms..

Burns Taxis 01387 250507 | Mcleans Taxis 01387 247474 | Premier Taxis 01387 250000 | Alba Taxis 01387 247555 | Elite Taxis 01387 403030


We will of course also have our on-site shop and an extended 'pick-up' area for those of you who like to make your purchases throughout the day. Please do make use of this to avoid the huge queues at the end of the day.

The usual security team will be in attendance as will the two first aiders.. hopefully they will be as unused as in previous years. Drambusters Staff will be there in abundance in their bright orange shirts.

We will be operating the Challenge 25 system of ID both at the door and at our shop, so please do not be offended if you are asked your age at either. Please do not attempt to bring anybody under 18 to the event as they will not be allowed in. Our iconic wristbands will be given to attendees on entry and these are required to receive any tasting samples.
