Members of the most secretive whisky association of all, the Facebook group Whisky Free For All (WFFA), visited the Malts Festival from Wednesday to Friday.

The group has 104 members but it is impossible to ask to join. The Courier caught up with five WFFA members, three from South Africa, one from England and a Scot.

WFFA members are from all walks of life, own many bottles, trade samples and meet at whisky events and hold an annual best distillery vote.

Last year’s winner with 376 points and 48 votes was Springbank, Aberdeenshire’s Glendronach was second followed by Islay’s Ardbeg.
