2018 WhiskyFest Tickets Are Now On Sale!

A limited number of Early Bird tickets will be available.

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, and craft-distilled whiskies, all assembled in one Grand Ballroom. High-end rum, cognac, and other spirits will be available as well.

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 go to at least one FREE seminar at WhiskyFest; you’ll be glad you did.

General Admission or VIP Ticket?

We want your WhiskyFest experience to be a memorable one. All tickets includes access to the grand tasting, all seminars (on a first come first serve basis), a commemorative Glencairn crystal nosing glass, gift bag, program booklet and pen.

VIP ticket buyers receive all the items listed above and are also granted admission to the ballroom at 5:30 pm, a full hour earlier than general admission. VIP ticketing is limited (VIP tickets always sell out) so you will have more time to explore the numerous booths in the grand ballroom and enjoy one-on-one opportunities with the whisky experts behind the booths.

Planning To Book A Room?

A limited number of rooms will be available with a special rate of $339 per night for WhiskyFest attendees, single or double occupancy. Rooms are available for the nights of April 15-17. Room block pricing is good through March 25, 2018, or until the block sells out.
