Yeah, it’s this time of the year, the time for the annual post of the Feis Ile Festival bottles, especially when we finally see some information out there.
This year, the festival will run from late May into June 2018 (25th May to 2nd June 2018).
This post will detail all the available information on the festival bottles and I’ll update it each time more details will be revealed.
It’s a safe bet that just like previous years, we will have more Feis Ile bottlings from other independent bottlers and other sources – all will be updated in the post when the information will be released.

Seems like the SMWS Feis bottlings from last year year were a huge success as they are gearing up for another Feis Ile bottlings. Two labels from two Islay distilleries popped up at the TTB database. We can assume that the bottles will be available, online at https://www.smws.com/ and at the Society’s UK venues sometimes late May or early June.
