International Scotch Day is back! Billed as a global fiesta for Scotch whisky fans, 8 February marks a collective dram-raising through events, bar activities, and good old-fashioned catching up with friends over a drop of the good stuff.

With events going on all around the world, we thought we’d bring you a round-up of our highlights. And keep your eyes peeled – our very own Annie is taking in not one but two Scotch whisky distillery visits to mark the occasion!

So I heard that it’s International Scotch Day today! Sadly I won’t have access to my collection until much later this evening, but I do have this beauty to admire as the sun shines through. I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d be celebrating scotch and that scotch would bring me so many incredible and enriching experiences! So today I will pour a dram and toast to all of the people around the globe who have enriched me and who make it possible to continue my love of learning about the magic inside the bottle! 🌎🥃❤️ _ @highlandparkofficial @highlandparkus #internationalscotchday #scotchday #scotch #scotchwhisky #skål #slainte #whisky #whiskygram #instawhisky #whiskylover #singlemalt #highlandpark #vikingsoul #orkney #valkyrie #edrington #thirstythursday

“It was one of two of my bestfriends Mike who introduced me to scotch, though he has passed away. The memories and friendship that we shared will always be something to celebrate. I know that he is in heaven now and definitely in a better place. I raise a glass always to celebrate him being such a once in a lifetime friend!” #lovescotch • Let’s all celebrate #InternationalScotchDay ! Tell me, how did you discover scotch?

🥃🎉 HAPPY INTERNATIONAL SCOTCH DAY TO ALL OF YOU !🎉🥃 The more i'm growing in my whisky journey, the more i LooOoOVe the Springbank distilleries products (family Mitchells)…This family owns Longrow (more peaty), Hazelburn (tripledistilled), Kilkerran and of course Springbank. They make great and quality whisky in a traditional, local, craft and authentic way. . . In fact now, i'm really loving the balance, the complexity and the refined – well integrated or subtle fruity/minerals/salted/peated flavors of their awesome and classy Single Malts ! And you, do you know and love Springbank, Longrow, Hazelburn, or Glengyle-Kilkerran ? I need to buy much more releases of these group… Any recommendations ? . Cheers to you and of course To our beloved Scotch Whisky ! . . . @springbankwhisky1828 #scotchwhisky #singlemalt #whisky #springbank #springbankdistillery #springbank12cs #springbank15 #longrow #longrowpeated #kilkerran12 #kilkerran #glengyledistillery #scotland #campbeltown #internationalscotchday #fellowshipofthedram #cheers #slainthe #sante #whiskyporn #lovescotch #whiskyfun #oneofthebest
