The Grand Whisky Auction had the esteemed pleasure of visiting the Feis Ile 2019, that is the world-famous Festival of Malt and Music. The event was held from the May 24th to June 1st, 2019. It was a big success. This was an important event for us to attend as it is one of the biggest whisky festivals in Scotland and takes place on the island of Islay, a name synonymous with single malt. Before we look at some whiskies, we auctioned off released at the event and why Islay is so important to the world of whisky, let’s take a trip down memory lane and find out more about Islay’s beginnings.
