Q) Suggestions for a Safe & Enjoyable Event
A) Use the spit buckets. You’re doing a tasting and should pace yourself doing 10 shots in 5 minutes is not going to be enjoyable. There’s no pressure to drink everything you’re trying. The brand representatives who will be present expect you to spit out their products after trying and won’t be offended if you do! It may seem silly or impolite, but it’s how the whiskey world works. Each Vendor will have a spit container.

Rinse out your glass between whiskeys! You don’t want a new sample to taste like the previous product.

** There’s going to be lines at the beginning of the event as people get in and spread throughout the venue. It may seem like you won’t have enough time to try everything you want, but we promise that you will. No need to worry or drink quickly. You will have time to experience all you’d like!

Please coordinate a ride home from a ride share service or friend/family member.

Hard Rules please follow if violated you will be escorted out:

No violence or aggressive behavior.

No firearms or weapons.
