Clackmannanshire's Whisky Festival (CWF) returns on Saturday, April 6 to celebrate whisky, heritage and wellness.
The whisky strand celebrates Scotland's national drink through the attendance of the best distilleries, independent bottlers and other whisky related exhibitors from across Scotland and beyond.
The heritage strand focusses on bringing the history of whisky production back to life through an exhibition as well as live, interactive coopering demonstrations allowing attendees to get involved in building a barrel.
As part of the wellness strand, CWF we will be partnering with suicide awareness charity, Neil's Hugs Foundation to help raise awareness and funds for the charity.
