4th - 5th April 2019


A big thank you to everyone who came to the 5th annual whisky festival in Bratislava; we look forward to welcoming you again next year!


  • The fifth annual whisky festival in Bratislava, held again in the beautiful Palffy Palace in the historical centre of the city

  • Over 220 different whiskies to choose from, including rarities and those that are not yet available on the Slovak market

  • It doesn't matter if you are completely new to whisky or whether you are an avid whisky lover - the festival caters to everyone

  • Attend one of our many Masterclasses, where whisky experts will guide you through a tasting of their handpicked whiskies

  • Live music, bag pipes, kilts, cigars, food… Boredom will not be an option!

What is a Dram?

A fictional currency used at the festival. You can buy Drams at the cash desk and then use them to buy tasting samples at the stands. 1 Dram = 1 EUR

How can I reserve a place at a Masterclass?

It is necessary to reserve a place and pay in advance - it is possible to do so on our website. Some Masterclasses are for free, some have an entrance fee. If you fail to pay for the Masterclass within 14 days of your reservation your reservation will be cancelled. Please reserve a place in advance even if the Masterclass is for free in order to secure a spot.

What does my ticket include?

Entrance to the festival, naturally. You will also get your own Glencairn whisky tasting glass which you can keep as a souvenir, a pipette to dilute your drink, and a pen and brochure with space for your notes. Although most whisky tastings have to be paid for with drams, your ticket does entitle you to 15 free tastings - the list of free tastings will be listed on the brochure. You can also enjoy a lively programme with live music and bag pipes, eat delicious food and participate in a competition to win a bottle of whisky.
