Stuart Hendry, Glengoyne Brand Heritage and Commercial Manager commented: “We are extremely proud of our tradition, heritage and handcrafted whisky. ScotFest provides a great platform for us to join other independent and traditional Scottish producers and, along with Tom Lewis and the MHOR brand, demonstrate The Real Taste of Malt with The Real Taste of Food.”
A tented village, ScotFest includes a wide selection of local food and drink producers providing samples to taste and enjoy alongside arts and craft exhibitors discussing their design methods and inspiration for their range of truly unique goods – perfect for early Christmas Shopping.
