Highland whisky will make fringe show debut

A Scotch whisky is set to make debut at Edinburgh Festival Fringe next month.

Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky will make feature in an interactive new event series exploring the traditions behind Scotland’s slowest whisky stills.

Katy Macanna, brand manager for Glengoyne, said: ‘We are delighted to be holding our first event at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer with Unhurried – Glengoyne’s Inefficient Tradition, which is a light-hearted look into Glengoyne’s astonishing stories and ways of whisky making. At Glengoyne, we proudly run the slowest stills in Scotland, and we’re looking forward to explaining why.’

Carina Contini, owner of Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, said: ‘There are few places more exciting than Edinburgh during the Fringe, and Cannonball is the closest restaurant to Edinburgh Castle, so we’re right in the heart of the action.

‘We’re looking forward to welcoming whisky fans from Edinburgh and around the world to join us for an afternoon of fun, fantastic food, and fabulous Glengoyne whisky.
