Food & Drink

We know how important food and drink is to festival goers, and that's why we always put thought into our catering offer. We are pleased to welcome three Bristol favourites to the festival, to keep you fuelled and hydrated throughout the day.

Burger Theory

Keeping you fuelled up throughout the day is Burger Theory, who are bringing their seriously good offerings to the Loco Klub for one day only.
Burger theory was founded by friends Rory Perriment and Oliver Thorogood, two very creative and enthusiastic burger chefs! In 2012 we started experimenting with different recipes and discovered there are hundreds of ways you can make a burger. Lets see if we can put a burger in your mouth and a smile on your face!

Godminster Cheese

As cheese is the perfect accompaniment to whisky, we're pleased to announce that you can sample some delicious products from Godminster cheese!
Godminster Farm is set on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Bruton in the heart of Somerset. With 1300 acres of beautiful landscape, the farm not only homes 280 organic dairy cows but also boasts fruitful orchards filled with a variety of delicious fruits and herbs which are used as inspiration for many

Butcombe Brewing

Because after all that whisky, you might be hankering for a pint - we're pleased to welcome Butcombe Brewery to the festival. These guys will be sampling in the main hall, but bottles will also be available to purchase at the bar at the venue.
In 1978 we shut out the world and made beer. We’re still doing the same today, except that every now and then we open up our doors and share our passion for pints with the world. We’d love for you to join us at Whisky Bristol.
