Feis Ile

As we look ahead of our virtual Fèis Ìle 2020, we want to take this opportunity to ask those thinking of traveling to Islay not to come. Scotland remains on lock down and we do not want to put our island home at risk by welcoming any visitors next week. We will not be selling any Festival bottles and our visitor centre remains closed.


Please stay home; enjoy our whiskies safely and join our activities.

Scroll down and join our online Fèis Ìle festival!



Feis Ile is a celebration of our island, our culture, our history, and of course our whisky! We urge every whisky fan to visit at least once in their lifetime. And we look forward to welcoming you in 2021! Amid a diverse programme of events, each distillery on Islay opens its doors for a busy day of whisky tasting experiences, tours and talks.

This year, Bowmore Distillery’s open day will take place online on Wednesday 27th May. You can follow our programme on Bowmore Islay Festival. 


Come chat with our team of distillers and get your very own bottle of Bowmore signed by Distillery Manager David Turner.

Enjoy music, malt and more in the courtyard of our distillery.

Due to the recent events, we have decided to hold our limited edition Bowmore 2020 Feis bottles until 2021. We look forward to welcoming you next year!
