Distilleries across the Malt Whisky Trail are rolling their sleeves up and preparing to fight it out at the “Battle of the Drams” at this year’s Spirit of Speyside Festival.

Some of the world’s finest whiskies will go head to head in a showdown with attendees deciding once and for all, what is the best whisky on the Malt Whisky Trail at The Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin on April 28th.

Event goers will sip their way through the flavours of the Trail, with each distillery fighting it out to be voted top dram. As well as complementary welcome and leaving drinks, there will be an opportunity to order from the new cocktail menu, crafted by the bar team at the Drouthy Cobbler.

The expert-led tasting will include whiskies from distilleries including Glen Moray, Benromach, Strathisla and Glenfiddich.

Rebecca Wood, Benromach Visitor Centre Supervisor, commented: “Here at The Malt Whisky Trail, we don’t like to turn down a challenge and we are really looking forward to rolling up our sleeves and battling it out on the 28th of April. This is a fun way for people to taste the Trail in one sitting and decide their favourite dram.”

Tickets can be purchased via The Spirit of Speyside’s website.
