Leeds Rumfest Organisers Announce New Whisky Festival

Leeds Whisky Festival – Saturday 9th April, 2022. Leeds Corn Exchange

Rolling Social Events, organisers of Leeds Rumfest and Leeds Gin Fair, have announced a new whisky festival, coming to the city’s Corn Exchange venue in April. Leeds Whisky Festival will feature over 100 drams hailing from Scotland, Japan, Ireland, and America, with plenty of opportunities to learn about whisky and explore the category by way of tasting and masterclass education sessions.

As with Rolling Social’s other events, Leeds Whisky Festival will be a fun, convivial experience, with live music being provided by Leeds’ own Hot Foot Hall, and plenty of food on hand to soak up the booze. As you would expect, the festival will also feature a fully stocked bar, should visitors want to drink something that doesn’t come in a tasting thimble.

The Festival is being held in two parts – the afternoon session runs from 12-4pm, with the evening session starting at 5pm and closing at 9pm). Tickets are available for £40 at eventbrite.co.uk, with the cover price including sampling and masterclass attendance. We will bring you word of any special trade ticket pricing if it is announced.
