North Hop

Introducing Spirit of North Hop

Thursday 31st August 2017

So last week we announced a brand new festival for North Hop, a festival celebrating some of the best spirits to come out of Scotland right now, a festival with true Scottish spirit...hello Spirit of North Hop!

The festival will be taking place in one of our favourite cities, Aberdeen, at one of our favourite venues, the AECC on Saturday 28th October 2017 and quite frankly we cannot wait! This festival has been months in the making and we have been working away pulling together an epic line up and working on the little things that will make this festival truly unique...

On arrival you will be given your very own Spirit of North Hop spirits that you can use throughout the festival and take home at the end along with a wee guide with a Scottish map centrefold which will show you where in Scotland (and the room) to find each distillery. Included in the ticket price is one 5ml taster per distillery (approx 35) and then, for the ones you enjoy you can go on to purchase a perfect serve and/or cocktail, as well as being able to purchase bottles to take home.

The distilleries will be using a wide selection of different mixers and garnishes to create those perfect serves and we cannot wait to see what special cocktails will be on offer!

At the festival you will be able to 'meet the distillers' behind the products and also attend special 'Spiritual Sessions' in the 'Botanical Lounge' where you can enjoy additional tasters and lots of distilling/spirit chat.

Also within the 'Botanical Lounge' you will find a selection of awesome street food vendors, a few specially selected market traders, a prosecco bar, and the North Hop bar serving up craft beer, cider, soft drinks and a few guest spirits. All this and local DJ's gracing the stage giving you some chilled out vibes throughout the sessions.

We worked alongside Clare from Clockstudio and Laura from Juniper Press to tweak the North Hop logo to portray the look and feel of the festival. We love how it has turned out and hope you love it too!

This festival will allow you to discover some new distilleries, re-visit old favourites, and kick start your winter in style!

Earlybird tickets only available until Saturday 2nd September 2017, don't miss out!

Distillery, food, market and music announcements coming soon...
