Whisky! Whiskey! Uísque!

There is a huge number of whisky events and festivals in the UK and throughout the World. Here I have tried to list some of these based on the month when they usually start to take place (dates may vary year on year) – please contact me if there are any suggestions of events that should be added to the list!

Note that I have used as an initial reference a number of websites and contributors online such as The Scotch World, Darren from Glencairn Crystal, Scotchwhisky.com, and many others.
