Event description


A Dram Come True
The world’s best whiskies meet the city’s best eats.

A Dram Come True is almost too good to be true. Join us for an evening of discovery and sophistication.

Sample unlimited drams of scotch, gin and other spirits from distilleries from across the globe including Scotland, Japan and India, and speak to the experts behind each creation. Sip an array of wine and craft beer from across the province. Savour food samples from some of the city’s favourite restaurants and eateries.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Along with our fantastic line-up of whiskies from around the world and local beer and spirits, we're excited to feature food from Hawksworth, Savoury City Catering and Gyoza Bar at the event!
