12th - 13th April 2018


Palffy Palace, Bratislava

12th and 13th April 2018 


The fourth annual Whisky Fest Bratislava will be held again in April 2018 in the now traditional Palffy Palace. Choose from almost 200 different whiskies, including those, that are yet unavailable on the Czech or Slovak markets!

Every year we try to invite an interesting guest speaker to organise a special masterclass for our visitors, and this year we are delighted to welcome Stano Vadrna. Stano is a worldclass bartender from Slovakia who will organise a 1.5 hour long seminar on hospitality and whisky peppered with anecdotes from his life in the industry, as well as a Nikka whisky masterclass.

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

  • Over 150 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, 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 a limited amount of tastings for free (at least 10) - this is up to each exhibitor and 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.
