Edinburgh Cocktail Week

Edinburgh Cocktail Week announces exciting 2018 programme

3 Mins

Exciting details have been released ahead of 2018's Edinburgh Cocktail Week...

Running from Monday 15th – Sunday 21st October, this year's festival is set to bring a week-long program of events and parties to the capital. The extension of the event follows the popularity of last year’s inaugural Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend and organisers have just released details of a huge 750 square meter 'Cocktail Village' set to transform Festival Square on Lothian Road. 

What to expect

Just like last year all signature cocktails are available to wristband-holders for £4 each from fifteen bespoke pop-up bars including Edinburgh Gin, Belvedere Vodka, Altos Tequila, Smokehead Whisky and many more. The festival has extended its participating venues too (from 50 to 80 no less!) with some of the city's favourite bars including Harvey Nichols, Tigerlily, Black Ivy, The Permit Room at Dishoom and The Voyage of Buck (recent winner of Scotland's Most Stylish Cocktail Bar) taking part.

Wristband-holders can look forward to a program of cocktail making, gin and whisky masterclasses at the 'Secret Spirits Study' hosted by Wemyss Malts and Darnley's Gin on Queens Street where they will sample and learn how to create classic cocktails or their own gin or blended whisky before getting hands-on to shake-up their own creation to bottle and take home.
