Drambusters Whisky Festival 2019



Our 9th Drambusters Whisky Festival will be held on 30th November 2019. As an added bonus, the day is St Andrew's Day - so what better way to celebrate our National Saint's Day than to toast it with our national tipple!

The 2018 event was a great day and everybody enjoyed the extensive range of whiskies and other spirits that were available to taste.

Tickets are £36 again 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.

Tickets are currently available to our Drambusters Whisky Club members as a benefit of being a member and will go on sale to the general public on March 1st. A link will be posted here from that date.

Tickets are limited to two per member until the end of February (only available from the shop) Members can also purchase further tickets from March 1st.

There will be a Master Class  at 1pm and tickets will be on sale for this later in the year. It is being hosted by Wm Grant and we know there will be some extremely special drams on offer

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 a bus 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.
