DramFest Main Event - 3rd & 4th March 2018

The DramFest Main Event is New Zealand's largest whisky education and tasting festival and takes place over two days at the Horncastle Arena in Christchurch from 1pm-6pm on the 3rd and 4th of March 2018.

2018's main event will be home to over 50 exhibitors representing distilleries, producers and independent bottlers from Scotland, Japan, Ireland and around the whisky world.

Over 250 different single malt, blended and other whiskies will be available to try, along with for the first time, rum will be available as a 'guest spirit'.

DramFest is a unique opportunity to meet with overseas and local whisky experts including distillers, owners and brand ambassadors attending the event - these visiting experts are for many the highlight of the event, offering the chance to interact with those who are directly involved with the creation, selection and promotion of some of the whiskies on offer.

We look forward to you joining us next year for a fantastic DramFest weekend!
