Festival offers tipple to taste
by Natasha Young

WHY not brush up on your knowledge on whisky next month, as a taster session for the tipple takes place in the town.

The Southport Whisky Tasting will be held at the resort's Scarisbrick Hotel on May 12, and is one of the star attractions of this year's Southport Food and Drink Festival.

Following last year's sell out event, ‘Whisky Evangelist' Eddie Ludlow will share his wealth of knowledge of the barley based spirit with participants, as they get to taste some fine drams whilst receiving plenty of tips and entertainment along the way.

Sarah Carter form Sefton Council said: “Eddie's whisky event was one of the festival's most popular events last year, so he is making a very welcome return to spread his love of whisky even further. With some tasting, some stories and some great tips, this event promises to leave a big smile on your face!”

Starting at 7.30pm, tickets are available at a special £12 festival rate by calling 0151 934 2337 or direct from the Scarisbrick Hotel.
