The annual Islay Festival is getting closer and it's a little over a week when hundreds of whisky aficionados from all over the world will come to Islay to enjoy the many festivities the island has to offer and to visit the open days of the single malt whisky distilleries. The schedule of all events will be published later here on this blog.
For now I would like to point out a rather unique whisky event during the festival, which is called Dancing Drams. The organiser of this event is Martine Nouet and on her beautiful new website she wrote: "Be one of the first to enjoy that ultimate sensory experience of whisky and dance pairing. I will present four great Islay single malts which will be paired to four styles of dance performed by Paula Davidson, a talented dancer who worked with the Scottish Ballet in Glasgow." The Dancing Drams event will start on Monday 27th of May at 4.00 pm at Bruichladdich Hall. The entrance fee is Â£15. Below is Martine's promotional video which will get you in the mood for this special festival event!
