Some of the world’s biggest whisky distilleries will come again under one roof in Moray next month as part of a popular festival.
The Spirit of Speyside’s Distilled event has attracted thousands of enthusiasts from across the north for the last three years.
The bash has involved industry giants like Macallan and Glenfiddich rubbing shoulders with small up-and-coming food and drink producers in the same venue.
This year organisers have teamed up with Elgin’s Oakwood Cookery School to run an afternoon tea during the opening event, which will feature a special cocktail as well as bakes.
As well as whisky, local breweries and gin distillers are expected to be at the event alongside food producers.
The now annual Distilled event was launched in 2016 as a spin-off from the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, which has been held in the spring for 20 years.
Festival chairman James Campbell said: “Distilled is a melting pot of fantastic flavours and wonderful personalities sharing their enthusiasm for fine food and drink.
“It offers the chance to enjoy so many different tastes, as well as broadening knowledge of food and drink through our menu of masterclasses.
“We are aiming to bring producers and the public together under one roof in celebration of the Speyside larder.”
Distilled will be held on Friday, September 6, and Saturday, September 7, at Elgin Town Hall. Sessions will run from noon to 4pm and from 6pm to 10pm on both days. Ticket details available online at www.distilled.scot
