March 2020 will see the 15th edition of Whisky Festival North Netherlands! With countless kinds of whisky and live music, this is a superb event in Groningen for the whisky-loving expats among us - not for the faint-hearted.

A world of fine whisky in Groningen

This three-day event is a must for anyone who has even a passing interest in the glorious drink because some of the world’s top whisky distilleries will be exhibiting and selling their spirits in the beautiful Aa-kerk. Walk into the majestic church, where you'll be in a whisky connoisseur's heaven.

More than 30 stalls, workshops and tasting sessions will welcome you to the world of whisky, accompanied by atmospheric music! Most brands on display will be available to buy, with a lot more variety than what you might come across in Dutch bars and cafes. Guests are free to wander through the stalls and soak up the atmosphere.
