The Festival, which has already managed to secure an impressive cult following online, will see many prestigious Scottish distilleries exhibit on the day, as well as a number of other key local complementary businesses.
Event co-organiser Cameron McCann said,
“It was only a few short months ago that we announced our plans for the Spirit of Stirling Whisky Festival. Since then we have been overwhelmed by how much interest and support that we have received, not just locally, but from right across the globe. Our Twitter account (@SoSWhiskyFest) has already secured over 1,000 whisky loving followers.
“We have already received a number of advance orders and enquiries about tickets, so we are delighted to announce that tickets have gone on sale from this weekend. Tickets can be purchased online, but in order to ensure that local people have the best opportunity to purchase tickets, we have decided to place a quantity of tickets in some local retailers that can only be purchased in person.”
