A single cask bottling of Longmorn 21 Year Old created exclusively for the Oak Barrel will be on taste and as well as Jim Murray’s top three ‘2013 World Whisky of the Year’ award winners, Thomas H Handy Rye, William Larue Weller and Ballantine’s 17 Year Old.

Woodford Reserve will be serving prohibition era cocktails and this year will see the return of the popular “Ode to a Haggis” performance.
