We’re delighted to announce that for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, we’re partnering up with the renowned Glengoyne Whisky Distillery to bring whisky fans something truly spectacular.

‘Unhurried – Glengoyne’s Inefficient Tradition’is an entertaining and interactive single malt experience – featuring an exclusive taste of Scotland’s best gastronomy from inside Cannonball’s Glengoyne Room.

Hosted by Fringe veteran, ex BBC Broadcaster and Comedy Writer, Gordon Dallas, the show uses cutting edge Projection Mapping technology to take you on an immersive journey, exploring the almost absurd lengths and apparent inefficient traditions Glengoyne dedicates itself to, all in the name of incredible whisky.

You’ll also get the opportunity to taste the flavoursome results of these illogical actions in three distinct drams of Glengoyne. Each of which have been paired with delicious food tasters.

So what are you waiting for?
