When is WWD

World Whisky Day will now officially take place on the third Saturday in May each year.


World Whisky Day is supported by VisitScotland, the Scotch Whisky Experience, Scotland Food and Drink and the Scottish Government. 

This date was chosen as it falls between the Spirit of Speyside Festival, at the beginning of May, and the Islay Whisky Festival at the end of May.

World Whisky Day strongly encourages responsible drinking.

Future World Whisky Day’s will land on the following dates:

  • Saturday 16th May 2015
  • Saturday 21st May 2016
  • Saturday 20th May 2017
  • Saturday 19th May 2018
  • Saturday 18th May 2019
  • Saturday 16th May 2020

And so on…
