Taste Whiskies From Around the World
Meet the whisky distillers, master blenders, and other whisky experts who will be in attendance. This is your chance to taste from a selection of single malt and blended Scotch, Irish, bourbon, rye, Tennessee, Japanese, Canadian, Taiwanese, and craft-distilled whiskies, all assembled in one Grand Ballroom. High-end rum, cognac, and other spirits will be available as well.
VIP 5:30 PM; General Admission 6:30 – 9:30 PM
Learn From the Experts
The focus is on education, and many distillery representatives will be on hand at the pouring booths to explain how their whiskies are made. Seminars, featuring their own tastings, run throughout the evening. Meet distinguished members of the whisky community, and learn first-hand how their brands are made. Be sure to attend a FREE seminar at WhiskyFest – you’ll be glad you did.
