OurWhisky Virtual Festival 2022

The OurWhisky Virtual Festival is back for a second year!

Join some of the world’s best-known whisky makers and ambassadors in a series of fun virtual tasting sessions hosted by OurWhisky co-founder, Becky Paskin.

Buy a ticket to any one of five sessions between 29th April-27th May and we’ll send you a special tasting kit filled with five different whiskies.

Themes & Charity

This year sees the introduction of five themed sessions, each designed to help you explore whisky while having a lot of fun and raising money for charity at the same time.

All profits from the OurWhisky Virtual Festival, which is also being sponsored by the featured brands, will be donated to The Drinks Trust to support drinks industry professionals affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Festival of Surprises

Just as last year, the festival comes with a twist – the contents of each tasting pack, as well as those presenting them, will remain a surprise until the day of the event.

This is our way of helping you explore whisky with a dose of anticipation and excitement. There are some incredible whiskies lined up for this year’s event, but you’ll have to take a punt on a lucky dip!

This year we’ve partnered with whisky retailer Milroy’s to offer an exclusive discount on full bottles featured in the festival.

Golden Tickets

We’ve also hidden five Golden Tickets among our tasting packs, which entitle lucky winners to select a complimentary bottle of whisky from those featured in their tasting.

As well as being a fun way to explore whisky, the Festival is also your chance to ask blenders and distillers everything you ever wanted to know about whisky, while enjoying a few drams along the way.

Please note, ticket sales will close 3 days before each event. Make sure to purchase your ticket with plenty of time for us to send your tasting pack out.

UK residents only. Attendees must be aged 18 and above.


All tasting sessions commence at 7pm GMT and run for approx. 90mins.
