Tomatin and other whisky producers invite to the Lockdown Whisky Festival

An online live event as an alternative to the Corona-canceled festivals


Numerous whisky festivals, fairs and tastings have been canceled this year to prevent the rapid spread of the corona virus (we reported). Nowadays, having the opportunity to use social media, those restrictions do not mean total isolation or the complete absence of maintaining contacts to us. Telephone and internet are more important than ever and Youtube, Facebook, Instagram & co. are full of live event offers from bloggers, distilleries and shops. Ben and Horst Lüning have held regular online tastings here at, even long before the Corona crisis started.

Tomatin has now announced a major online live event

On April 4, 2020 from 3 to 6 p.m. (Central European summer time; it's 2 to 5 p.m. GMT), the distillery invites you to join the Lockdown Whisky Festival on Tomatin’s YouTube channel. "We want to keep festival season alive," says Tomatin, and has been able to win numerous supporters and comrades in arms for the project. Hosted by whisky influencer Roy from Aquavitae, brand ambassadors from well-known whisky labels will present their whiskies live and answer questions.
