Business owners get involved

Taste Islay and Jura is a new 3-day food, drink and foraging festival that will take place on Islay and Jura September 20th – 22nd September.

We keen that businesses get involved in the event and are asking you to make a commitment for what your business could offer to create a ‘whole community’ approach to the festival..

For example, this might be a special menu for the weekend using only local produce, you might be able to offer an adventure activity relevant to food or drink, put on a special tour, host your own event.


Organisers are seeking to collate ideas from businesses looking to take part. We will then send you a toolkit which will include logo, producers details so that you can make the most of this event for your business and the festival itself..
