Slàinte! The London Heathrow Whisky Festival is back

May sees the return of London Heathrow’s annual Whisky Festival with World Duty Free. Once again celebrating all things whisky with a perfect blend of tasting events, dining experiences and even a chance to win a VIP distillery tour.

Here’s a wee sample of what’s on offer at Heathrow Airport’s Whisky Festival this month:

BenRiach to launch Heathrow exclusive single malt – available from mid-May

An unconventional Speyside whisky distiller, BenRiach distills a ‘troika’ of malt whisky styles – non-peated, peated and triple distilled – and holds some of the most experimental casks in Speyside. Small wonder the distillery team have nicknamed the distillery ‘The Lab’. The distillery is also one of the two remaining distilleries in Speyside to distil whisky using malted barley from its own on-site floor malting, a time-honoured method that is celebrated for one month each year.

Bottled exclusively for Heathrow Airport the BenRiach 2005 single cask bottling, is a 12-year-old single malt scotch whisky, taken exclusively from Oloroso Cask 5025. The cask was hand-selected by Master Blender, Rachel Barrie and there will be a limited number of bottles available to purchase at £119.99.

Visit World Duty Free to take home this exclusive whisky (while stocks last).

Whilst you are waiting for the BenRiach 2005 to arrive in-store become a whisky expert with the Heathrow blog.



For this year’s Whisky Festival Heathrow have not one but two VIP distillery tours to be won.

To this day, The Glenlivet remains the benchmark that all other Speyside single malts are measured against. If you are lucky enough to win, you will be able to see the distillation process in action, indulge in a whisky tasting and truly immerse yourself in the oldest legal distillery in the parish of the River Livet.
