The Whisky World Returns to Speyside (Episode 929: February 27, 2022)

Tickets for this year’s Spirit of Speyside Festival go on sale next Tuesday (March 8), and festival organizers are hoping for a return to normal after two years of pandemic-caused cancellations and postponements. We’ll talk with the festival’s new volunteer chairman, George McNeil, about plans to hold a traditional Spirit of Speyside Festival from April 27 through May 2, along with some of the changes planned for this year’s event. In the news, we’ll look at the Ukraine invasion’s impact on the whisky business, along with more details on plans for a new Campbeltown distillery.
