Theatre of Drams Islay Whisky Symposium

In an earlier blog post I ran a poll and asked folk what they would think about the festival lasting two weeks. The majority, 69% of 515 votes, voted in favour of a two week festival in the near future. Right now all festivities are cramped into one week and for many folk on the island it's extremely busy. Having a two week festival could possibly bring a somewhat more relaxed atmosphere to the festival and more folk could join. It's great news therefore that someone is organising an extra whisky related event which lasts almost a week. This event, however, is not related to the Islay Festival at the end of May, but it takes place in October, and on a smaller scale.

Rachel MacNeill, owner of Whisky for Girls (and Guys!) is hosting ‘Theatre of Drams’ in October, from 23rd to 27th, and tickets are on sale from this month. Rachel’s festival will mainly be held in Bowmore Hall and she aims to offer variety to suit each person’s needs with the offer to “book on a tasting, a talk, a workshop, anything you fancy.” In previous years Rachel has run Whisky Course Islay which will be incorporated in Theatre of Drams although events can all be booked individually even for those not taking part in the course.

Rachel said: “Masters from all areas, both geographical and technical, of the industry will be on Islay to share their wisdom, wit and whisky with everyone. The course structure will be similar to the last two years, with the actual whisky making process being followed in a linear fashion and practical learning from participating Islay Distilleries.” The full five day course has space for 22 people to partake, and Rachel can be contacted on rachel@wildandmagicislay.com for more information and booking details.
