Crime writer Ian Rankin will be guest of honour when the Fife Whisky Festival returns to the Kingdom next month. The author, who was born in Cardenden, Fife, will speak at the whisky-themed dinner which opens the event at Lindores Abbey Distillery in Newburgh.
He said: “As a keen whisky drinker I’m delighted to be speaking at the Festival. Whisky is one of the wonders of Scotland. Sharing a few whiskies with a friend is the ultimate act of conviviality.
Whisky fans can enjoy a packed programme of events when Fife Whisky Festival returns to the Kingdom next March.

Another evening with a few samples to savor. Claxton’s is a proudly Yorkshire based independent bottler of outstanding single cask, single malt Scotch whiskies from across Scotland’s oldest and finest distilleries. A tasting I looked forward to, can you blame me?
