Leeds Whisky Festival 2024

After a sell out Leeds Whisky Festival in 2023, we have gone even bigger and better for 2024. We are moving to a new venue, The Royal Armouries.

We have specially selected some of the best brands from across the globe and will be bringing their ambassadors, makers and creators into one room to give you insider knowledge on your favourite distilleries from across the globe.

Leeds Whisky Fest will take place on Saturday November 2nd with masterclasses, bars, food vendors and entertainment set to raise the roof in true Studio Events style.

We love Scotch whiskey as much as the next enthusiast, but we want to highlight so of the lesser-known brands as well. If you’re interested in exploring the larger world of whisky, this festival is for you!

Included with your ticket is:

  • ALL whisky samples – with over 100 different whiskies to choose from!
  • Free access to all masterclasses
  • An etched, Leeds Whisky Fest tasting glass
  • Leeds Whisky Fest event guide
  • Live entertainment

You will also have access to….

I’ve never been to a whisky festival before. What does it look like?
When you arrive there will be the main tasting room with several stands. Each stand will be operated by knowledgeable ambassadors and experts so we encourage you to ask questions! Slightly aside from the main area will be some seating, food vendors and a bar if you need a break.

Do I need to know a lot about whisky?
Absolutely not! There are plenty of different styles and experts to help you find the right one for you. This is a great way to understand the category as a whole.

What exactly is a ‘sample’ of whisky?
A sample is around 10ml of liquid. Remember there will be over 100 types – it’s a marathon, not a sprint!

Is there water available?
All guests receive bottled water upon entry. Tap and bottled water are available from the bar. We encourage you to remain hydrated.

What do I need to bring with me?
Just your QR/barcode that comes with your e-ticket. It will be scanned upon entry, so either have a printout or it ready on your phone.

Will there be food available?
We will have a local food trader on the day with veggie/vegan options. If you have specific allergen/dietary concerns, please get in touch with Studio Events. Please note that food is not included in the ticket price.

What is a masterclass?
Our masterclasses are a chance to get a more in-depth talk from the brands. All of them cover different topics and a range of whisky styles. A timetable will be published nearer to the event.

Do the masterclasses cost extra?
No, they are included in the ticket price but are only available to a limited number of guests.

Do I have to book the masterclasses?
Our masterclasses are first come first serve and spaces are limited. Please make sure you queue at least 15 minutes before the class starts to avoid disappointment.

Is there just whisky available?
We also have a bar serving beer, wine and softs.
