WhiskeyFest Chicago 2018

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
Your General Admission ticket includes access to the grand tasting ballroom at 6:30pm, a Glencairn crystal nosing glass, tote bag, printed event program, pen, bottle of water, admission to the seminars (seating is on a first come basis) and a gourmet buffet that’s open all evening. You’ll enjoy all of this in the company of people who love whisky almost as much as you do!

VIP (limited number available)
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 regular admission. VIP ticketing is limited 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. They always sell out, so be sure to order your VIP tickets early.

Date: March 23, Friday, VIP: 5:30pm-9:30pm, General admission: 6:30pm-9:30pm
Price: $325-$445
