Meet and learn from master blenders and distillery representatives, all while sampling from a selection of more than 170 whiskies. Get to know the different flavours and styles that the regions of Scotland have to offer at The Port table, new at this year’s Festival. Plus, try whisky cocktails crafted by some of Nova Scotia’s best bartenders.
