How many whiskeys will be available to try?
Over 200 varieties!
What’s included in a General Admission (GA) Ticket?
General Admission ticket holders will receive a branded rocks tasting glass and be given full range of the venue to taste whichever whiskeys they desire. Sorting through this many whiskeys would require a prohibitively expensive investment in bottles were a whiskey explorer to pursue a tasting this vast on their own. The GA ticket provides a pathway to finding your new favorite whiskey without breaking the bank.
What’s included in a VIP Ticket?
VIP ticket holders will receive access to the event 1 hour earlier than general admission entry, a crystal snifter glass and be given full range of the venue to taste whichever whiskeys they desire. In addition, they’ll have access to seminar rooms where whiskey experts will provide brand histories and guided tastings. They’ll also be given access to a buffet.
Will there be Designated Driver (DD) Tickets available?
No. In the age of ride sharing and cell phones, there is no reason why a safe ride home can’t be coordinated. Historically, we’ve found that the DD Tickets require too much policing and drivers are tempted to have “just one sample.” Be a responsible whiskey drinker and make a plan for getting home that doesn’t require getting behind the wheel.
Can I trade up to a VIP Ticket within the event?
Unfortunately, no. We have limited supplies for the ticket tiers and don’t have the flexibility to add the necessary resources during the event.
Are samples free?
Once you have your ticket for admission and enter the venue, you will not be charged for any whiskey tasting.
Are cocktails free?
Each guest will receive a booklet when he or she walks into the event. In the booklet are tear-out “tickets” or “redemption coupons” that can be used to get cocktails at the various branded bars. Don’t think of a traditional bar where you walk up and tell the bartender what you’d like. The cocktail bars are hosted by showcasing brands and typically offer just one specialty cocktail per bar. Each attendee will have one tear-out redemption coupon for each of the cocktail bars. This redemption method is only used for the cocktail bars and not for the general sampling of whiskeys (it’s rooted in an effort to make sure that showcasing brands have enough inventory for everyone).
