Grand Pier Whisky & Rum Festival

Warm yourself this winter at the Grand Pier’s first ever Whisky & Rum Festival!

On arrival, you will be presented with your very own Grand Pier branded whisky glass and a booklet to guide you through the world of whisky & rum. Then make your way over to our welcome drinks station for your complimentary hot toddy to help stave off the January chill.

Study your booklet while you drink and select the rum and whisky of your choice, then make your way over to our dedicated bars to take your first taste!

Throughout the day there will be a range of exhibitor stands for you to browse at your leisure, who will be selling products by the bottle and chatting about their products and process.

We will also have a series of talks and masterclasses taking place in the adjacent suite, as well as live music.

The bars will run on a token system, and will not accept cash, so you will need to purchase tokens from our token station. These are £5 each, or 5 for £20.
1 token = 1 standard whisky or rum
2 tokens = 1 premium whisky/double standard whisky or rum/cocktail

Advance tickets are just £12 to include your entry to the festival, an exclusive Grand Pier branded whisky glass and a hot toddy on arrival.

Day Session – 12pm-6pm

Tickets will be priced at £15 on the door (subject to availability)
