Tickets are selling fast for the Whisky An A’ That festival on Saturday, May 26, so if you’re keen to go, please order them now. The event is being organised by Robin Russell of Robbie’s Drams – a thoroughly nice man with a passion for whisky and a shop that’s got some very interesting stock to match. If you go to his website http://www.robbiesdrams.com you can order tickets there. Alternatively call the shop on 01292 284279 and Robbie or Derek will take your order. I’ve managed to get 12 reserved for club members, so if you’re calling, please mention you’re with Glasgow’s Whisky Club and they’ll take your ticket from that allocation.
This year is bigger than ever and Robbie has taken it out of the shop and into Ayr's Carnegie Reference Library. It’s at 12 Main Street and you can find it here http://www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/libraries/branches/carnegie_map.htm
There will be food and drinks from a mix of exhibitors, with celebrity guests and speakers. Tickets are £12 but you'll get a nosing glass and a mini, plus a catalogue and five vouchers thrown in.
It’s running from 12 to 6 and rather than hire a bus, I thought those who want to go should let me know so I can gauge numbers. We could meet in the Pot Still in time for a beer or a dram and get the train. They run every half hour and take less than an hour. So the 1pm would get us there for 2, give us four hours to eat and drink, and wander wearily back up the road.
