World Whisky Day invites everyone to try a dram and celebrate the water of life. Taking place annually on the third Saturday in May, this special occasion is celebrated by whisky lovers worldwide with tastings, events and gatherings.
Although this year and last have been a little different, our guiding principles have remained the same. World Whisky Day is about making whisky fun for all, not about being exclusive or prescriptive. All you need to participate is a bottle of whisky/whiskey – whatever variety, however you enjoy it.
The only rule is to drink responsibly!
How can I take part?
There are many ways you can take part in World Whisky Day 2021 (Saturday 15 May).
First of all, you can join the conversation on social media using #WorldWhiskyDay. What kind of whisky are you sampling? Who are you sharing it with this year? How do you enjoy your whisky – on the rocks, with water, or with a mixer? The possibilities are endless!
This year, we are introducing the World Whisky Weekender – a ticketed, interactive event series that will bring whisky lovers worldwide together. We’ll be launching the line-up and tickets very soon so keep an eye on our website and social channels for details on how to secure your slot.
Wherever you are in the world, there’s likely to be a World Whisky Day event that’s right for you. Regularly check social media for competitions, quizzes, tastings, livestreams and some good Old Fashioned chat (pun intended).
But what if I’ve never tried whisky before?
Then you are in the right place. We want to encourage everyone, from the seasoned specialist to the eager newcomer, to enjoy a dram. Therefore, we have collated lots of information on this site for you to explore. Check out the Articles tab or use the Search at the top of the page to start your journey.
But I don’t think I would enjoy whisky neat?
