MEET  TOMATIN

OUR TITLE SPONSOR

NIP is really proud to count Tomatin Highland Single Malt Whisky as our 2016 title sponsor. Tomatin is our local dram. Set in the rolling Inverness-shire hills, the distillery has been producing fine Highland malts with a distinctly Speyside characteristic - giving rise to it's reputation as showing off the 'softer' side of the Highlands.

We have events across the city of Inverness and the final day is held at the mutli award winning Bogbain Farm  which is just south of the city.

Find out more about Bogbain Farm from www.bogbainfarm.com

We have different tasting events during the week which are suitable for experts in spirits and beginners too!

On Saturday, your ticket gains you entry to the exhibition area where you can spend your afternoon sampling whisky & gin from all over Scotland.

Since many of our events are in the city centre, it is easy to get to a tasting event or our tours! But if you want to come to Bogbain on Saturday, we are providing buses which need to be booked in advance.  Click here to book!

EVENTS THROUGHOUT INVERNESS

NIP is Scotland's annual festival of craft spirits. With events hosted throughout the historic City of Inverness, NIP's programme features innovative tastings, expert-led master-classes, whisky & gin city tours, and a lavish industry dinner. The five-day festival is capped by a now renowned drinks expo at the award-winning Bogbain Farm, with brands, music, local food and awesome craic. This is no fuddy-duddy, super serious festival. This is NIP - five days of craft spirits heaven in the Highlands of Scotland.

MEET YVONNE, OUR

FESTIVAL DIRECTOR

NIP was founded by seasoned events organiser and entrepreneur, Yvonne Murray.   Previously a television researcher & producer, Yvonne then moved on to being a director of the multi award winning wedding venue, Bogbain Farm, where she set up the Inverness Whisky Festival and Brew at the Bog, one of Scotland's most exciting new music festivals.  Now she has branched out on her own with her portfolio of festivals, which now include NIP Belfast.  To contact Yvonne, click on her face.

ABOUT US

MEET ISLE OF HARRIS

OUR GIN SPONSOR

We are delighted to have Isle of Harris Distillers at this year's NIP as our Gin sponsor

 

While preparations continue for distilling the spirit for 'The Hearach' whisky, the Harris distillers are busy creating The Isle of Harris Gin. The small copper still, known affectionally as 'The Dottach', imbues the spirit with the complex delights of nine specially chosen botanicals as they seek to capture the elemental nature of the stunning island - particularly the maritime influences of the seas which surround them on all sides.

 

Come to NIP for a sample of the gin, buy some bottles and attend a masterclass!

A brand new development for 2016 is that we now have a water sponsor! You will have a taste of Nessie swim through your whisky - how cool is that?! Direct from the world famous Loch Ness, this water is the most superb and authentic Highland accompaniment to your dram!

Alternatively, some of you may wish to use it to pace yourselves throughout the day!  A bottle will be supplied to every ticket holder at Bogbain Farm on Saturday.

MEET LOCH NESS WATER

OUR WATER SPONSOR

MEET THE NEAT GLASS

OUR GLASS SPONSOR

Used at every tasting, and included in your Saturday ticket price, will be the Ultimate Spirits Glass.  Science built a better glass, and we're delighted to showcase it at this year's NIP!
