Glengoyne is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe – Scotch Whisky News



We’re delighted to announce that for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, we’re partnering up with the renowned Contini Cannonball Restaurant & Bar to bring whisky fans something truly spectacular.

‘Unhurried – Glengoyne’s Inefficient Tradition’ is an entertaining and interactive single malt experience – featuring an exclusive taste of Scotland’s best gastronomy from inside Cannonball’s Glengoyne Room.

Hosted by Fringe veteran, ex BBC Broadcaster and Comedy Writer, Gordon Dallas, the show uses cutting edge Projection Mapping technology to take you on an immersive journey, exploring the almost absurd lengths and apparent inefficient traditions Glengoyne dedicates itself to, all in the name of incredible whisky.

Situated at the top of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and next to the city’s famous Castle, the Cannonball is a hugely popular venue that’s steeped in history. Once you drink in the breathtaking views of the Castle and the Mile, you’ll soon see why.

You’ll also get the opportunity to taste the flavoursome results of these illogical actions in three distinct drams of Glengoyne. Each of which have been paired with delicious food tasters.

So what are you waiting for?

Hurry! To get your tickets today, simply click the button below. You won’t want to miss this.

The Macallan Unveils Immersive Distillery Experience ~ New York’s Grand Central July 25 – 27 – Scotch Whisky News


The Macallan Unveils Immersive Distillery Experience

The Distillery Experience

In June 2018, The Macallan unveiled its iconic and unprecedented new distillery and visitor experience, after 6 years and $186 million in the making. Solidifying its position as the luxury single malt, the brand also needed to spread mass awareness about its opening to drive interest and traffic to this whisky mecca as a true destination.

To do this, The Macallan created a global campaign bringing the new distillery experience to consumers and stakeholders around the world through an array of engaging experiences and custom content. From the doors of the new distillery and inside the stunning new visitor experience, an interactive virtual experience will allow consumers anywhere in the world – at an event, on their mobile phones, on our social media pages, or in a retail store – to explore the new distillery as if they were really there, and choose their own path to learn more about the history and heritage of The Macallan and its unrivaled whisky making process. From Hong Kong to Mexico City to NYC and beyond, the installations and VR technology will bring the distillery to the world.

Here in the US, an event series highlighting the brand’s foundations and future will take place for one week in July – with a private media & influencer event in NYC followed by a consumer-facing activation at Grand Central Station.

 In addition to whisky tastings, also featuring the brand new Edition No. 4 expression, and brand education moments, the events will feature an immersive “Cube” installation that brings the new distillery to life within a large, interactive booth structure. The 15x15x15 “Cube” offers an unprecedented opportunity to experience the distillery like never before. An in-person guide will take guests through a 4D multi-sensorial, immersive experience features 360 degree panoramic content of the new distillery projected on large scale walls of the booth.

Grand Central Activation

To celebrate the launch of The Macallan’s new distillery and bring a taste of Speyside to New York, we will transform Vanderbilt Hall into an immersive and sensational experience where guests will be transported to the distillery. Our interactive cube will take guests on a virtual journey through the distillery and Easter Elchies Estate to learn about the distillery building architecture, our collectable expressions and untold stories from our estate. As part of the experience, guests will enjoy samples of The Macallan with bites of Scottish fare.

The Macallan’s new distillery activation will take place at the following dates and times:

  • Date(s): Wednesday, July 25, Thursday, July 26 and Friday, July 27 (half day only) – Friday, July 27 is National Scotch Day
  • Time: 11:30 AM to 7:30 PM (12:00 PM to 3:30 PM on Friday)

Scotch Tasting: Edradour & Signatory Vintage

Featuring Edradour, the smallest traditional distillery in Scotland since 1823, and Signatory Vintage, one of the most discerning independent bottlers in the world, this expert presented tasting will have a variety of new and rare scotches to share.

About Edradour:

Edradour is world renowned as the smallest traditional distillery in Scotland and arguably the most unique. Dating back to 1825, Edradour, stands alone as the last stronghold of handmade single malt whisky from a farm distillery still in production today. Their ever-popular spirits maintain the traditional tastes of the Highland region, as well as unique wine-cask and peated finishes.

About Signatory Vintage:

Signatory Vintage Scotch is one of the most discerning independent bottlers of Scotch in the world. They bottle one cask at a time, capitalizing on the unique color and flavor characteristics of each individual cask. By sourcing all-natural malts from the best distilleries in Scotland, selecting the best single batches and bottling only the finest casks within those batches, they maintain an unparalleled standard of quality – The resulting “single, single, single malt” is about as exclusive it gets.
