The fourth Belfast Whiskey Week will take place from Friday 22 July until Saturday 30 July.
Featuring over 100 events, Belfast Whiskey Week will span nine days in partnership with 14 venues city wide and deliver sessions with over 40 brands and distilleries. Designed to cater for a wide range of festival goers, this year's programme includes heritage walking tours, music, talks, food pairing sessions and a speed dating event.
Developed by Belfast-based businessman Paul Kane, Belfast Whiskey Week is a community led initiative driven by a group of enthusiasts from Belfast Whiskey Club. It was created as a platform for Belfast to reclaim its whiskey heritage, celebrate its distilling history, and look forward to the innovations and growth within the region.
Statement By Festival Organiser
Festival organiser Paul Kane stated, "We are delighted to announce the fourth Belfast Whiskey Week, Ireland's largest whiskey festival. It is a must attend event for those with an interest and taste for all things whiskey. Belfast is quickly re-emerging as an important place for Irish whiskey. Soon we will have two functioning distilleries, something the city hasn't seen in over 70 years. The city is steeped in whiskey heritage and legacy spanning 300 years and it's important to celebrate that.
Kane added, "We hope to welcome thousands of attendees across the nine-day event and hope they enjoy the wide range of unique and different ways to engage with whiskey."
