The SMWS returned to Feis Ile this year to host its open day at Islay House to kick off the festival.

This year’s open day, a garden party fiesta, was packed full of exciting activities – from three Project Flavour Behaviour test sessions to a chilli eating competition.

Guests were also treated to the special 2016 Feis Ile release, 127.44: Cantina Mexicana which went on sale at 1pm.

Senior Brand Manager Helen Stewart was at Islay House on the day and said the Project Behaviour test events attracted lots of curious people on the day.

“We enjoyed some great drams with some fantastic people. Around 95 guests took part in our secret Project Flavour Behaviour tests and we were thrilled to see so many brave volunteers sign up for our chilli eating competition. We’re looking forward to next year already”

Cantina Mexicana will be available to buy in SMWS venues from Friday 3rd June. To find out more about the 2016 Feis Ile release, read Phoebe’s review here.
