Just saw this article from the Stirling (Scotland) Observer. Thought I would pass it on to you all. Note the website at the bottom of the article. Please visit the site and go to the festival if you can. I know it would be a glorious time and you can tour the wonderful historic Stirling Castle and see the real battle field where William Wallace defeated the English at the Battle of Stirling. A really cool place to be. Have a dram for me. The Stirling Observer is the author of the text below not me. I am just reprinting it in hopes someone will see it and go to enjoy the festival.

Organizers of the inaugural Spirit of Stirling Whisky Festival, held earlier this year at the city’s Albert Halls, have announced that the event will return by popular demand in 2013.Plans are already under way to host the second edition of the drinks industry showcase at the Dumbarton Road venue on May 11 next year. The festival is organized by local businessmen Cameron McCann and Iain McMenemy. Mr. McCann said: “We are delighted to be able to bring the festival back to Stirling in 2013..
“Tickets sold out in advance of the last festival and we have already received numerous requests for advance tickets for the 2013 event. The Drymen-based businessman continued: “We launched a limited-edition commemorative whisky to celebrate the success of the first festival this year. This was a limited run of 156 hand-numbered bottles of a specially-labeled Spirit of Stirling whisky.
“There are only around two dozen of those bottles left, which can be purchased through our website, but we will be launching another exclusive, hand-numbered, whisky to celebrate the 2013 festival.”
