Taking place on selected dates from 3-26 August at Cannonball Restaurant & Bar on Castlehill, the team say ‘Unhurried – Glengoyne’s Inefficient Tradition’ will use cutting-edge projection mapping technology to take whisky enthusiasts on an immersive journey into the heart of "Scotland’s slowest stills".

Hosted by Fringe veteran, ex-BBC broadcaster and comedy writer, Gordon Dallas,
this 50-minute-long event will look deep into "Glengoyne’s dedicated traditions",  marrying the experience with a splash of humour and a measure or two of whisky.

During the show, whisky aficionados and beginners alike will have the chance to
taste the results of "Glengoyne’s unhurried traditions" with three distinct drams
of single malt whisky each paired with Scottish taster dishes by Cannonball Restaurant & Bar.

Katy Macanna, brand manager for Glengoyne, said: “We are delighted to be holding
our first event at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer with ‘Unhurried –
Glengoyne’s Inefficient Tradition’, which is a light-hearted look into Glengoyne’s
astonishing stories and ways of whisky making. At Glengoyne, we proudly run the
slowest stills in Scotland, and we’re looking forward to explaining why.”

Carina Contini, owner of Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, added: “There are few places more exciting than Edinburgh during the Fringe, and Cannonball is the closest restaurant to Edinburgh Castle, so we’re right in the heart of the action. We’re looking forward to welcoming whisky fans from Edinburgh and around the world to join us for an afternoon of fun, fantastic food, and fabulous Glengoyne whisky.”

‘Unhurried – Glengoyne’s Inefficient Tradition’ will be hosted in The Glengoyne
Room within Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, tickets cost £20 per person and are on sale now.
