Drambusters Whisky Festival 2017

Our 7th Drambusters Whisky Festival is just around the corner. All is good to go for Saturday 18th of November with the doors opening at 12 noon.

This year's Master Class is at 1pm and is with Angus Dundee Distillers and there are a limited amount of tickets left if anybody wishes to attend!

The Festival itself is filling up well with whiskies and many other spirits too and will run much 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.

On the day, we're also pleased to tell you that you can book a pre-festival breakfast at Neuro's Bar, Restaurant & Spa (attached to the end of Easterbrook Hall.. at the far right). Breakfast will be served from 9.30am and you should book by calling them on 01387 702500.

The Crichton Golf Club is also offering a Festival Breakfast Buffet! You can book this by callling them on 01387 247894.
