  Grand Palace Hotel, Pils iela 12, Riga

The elegant highlight of Riga Whisky Festival is our traditional formal dinner at the beautiful Grand Palace Hotel. For our 5th birthday event we are proud to partner with the legendary The Macallan distillery.

At The Macallan Dinner, you will enjoy a welcome cocktail and canapes in the hotel bar before starting your whisky and food adventure in the main dining room. The fantastic three-course dinner will be accompanied by a tasting of The Macallan whiskies, led by Brand Ambassador Mrs Vianeya Solovyeva. We will taste the new The Macallan Triple Cask Matured range of whiskies, launched in the local markets only in spring 2018, as well as a famous gem of their impressive selection.

This year’s cigar partner is Principle Cigars – a boutique brand from the United States and a supporter of Riga Whisky Festival from the first day. We are happy to have the brand owner Mr Darren Cioffi present at the event – a great man to smoke a cigar with any day, but especially this day.

Three Principle Cigars will be available for smoking throughout the evening.

Our traditional charity raffle will be held during the event. We are collecting funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities Latvija, to help provide medical care to the children of Latvia. The raffle is always a lot of fun and there are great prizes to be won, but the most significant part remains helping with the noble cause – so big thank you in advance to those who can give generously!

Special thank you for Mr Pekka Puolakka of Law Firm Sorainen, a whisky lover and collector, for continued support of our dinners.
