Feis Ile

Feis Ile is a week-long festival of music and malt that takes place every year on Islay during the last week of May.

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.

Amid a diverse programme of events across the island, each distillery on Islay opens its doors for a busy day of whisky tasting experiences, tours and talks.

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.

Thank you for your patience regarding our highly anticipated Fèis Ìle 2019 programme. We are delighted to confirm that it is now ready to view, please see below.

Feis Ile is also an opportunity for us at Bowmore to share some exceptional whiskies among devoted fans.

Each year, we release a range of exclusive Feis Ile Festival bottlings. These limited edition whiskies are rare treasures and always in high demand, so don’t be surprised to see many people queuing overnight to get their hands on one of the few bottles available!
