Attendees will receive a festival pack containing ten samples from five incredible distilleries (covering England, Ireland and Scotland), along with snacks to see you through the day and our limited edition Summerton Whisky Club glass.
Brands will present their drams and distilleries with a tasting session, and we’ll have cocktail making sessions too. There will also be live music between discussions with the brand ambassadors and our guest hosts – Matthew Wright (TV/Radio presenter) and Matt Mackay (from The Dramble).
The finer details are undergoing final scrutiny from Dan, club founder, and will be listed below as they are confirmed.
Tickets are limited to 500 and selling fast, first-come-first-served, and currently 1 per member.
We will also be recording the entire event, so if you can’t make it on the day you can still enjoy the festival pack and the full day on our Festival Catch-up channel.
*FEAR NOT – IF YOU AREN’T A MEMBER YET THERE IS STILL TIME TO JOIN – AND THERE WILL BE ANOTHER FESTIVAL OPEN TO ALL LATER IN THE YEAR

THE STORY OF A COMMUNITY
Our story is one of a community and the many people who have made it what it is today. Brought together by a shared craft, the inhabitants of Deanston have spent many decades inspiring a commitment to innovation, authentic craftsmanship and community spirit. The story of our Distillery has inspired us, in the production of our many Single Malts, and the hand crafted techniques which give Deanston the fresh, honeyed sweetness it’s known for.
Welcome to the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, where we’re making world class single malt whisky, here on the Yorkshire Coast of England.
We believe in doing things properly and we’re obsessed with every step of the growing and distilling process, from field to bottle. Mentored by renowned whisky expert Dr. Jim Swan, our instinctive approach is to create a whisky that doesn’t just replicate Scotch. That doesn’t mean we rely on blind luck – we take the best of tradition and apply new thinking to create something unique: Filey Bay Yorkshire Single Malt Whisky.
Sliabh Liag Distillers is the first distilling company in the county for over 175 years, established with the purpose of reclaiming the distilling heritage of Donegal.
In James and Moira Doherty, two Scatterlings have returned to Sliabh Liag with their Meitheal (work-gang or team) to create a legacy that the whole community can be proud of. Located on the Sliabh Liag peninsula, the two distilleries are surrounded by one of the world’s most striking landscapes populated by resilient people, steeped in folklore and with a legendary distilling heritage.
The first whisky ever to be distilled in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky is a rich and fruity single malt.
The Cotswolds Distillery was founded in 2014 by Dan Szor. A native New Yorker, Dan had been working in finance in London and spending his weekends with his family in the Cotswolds. He had been looking for a new direction that would let him move permanently to the countryside and do something he was passionate about.
