Your WhiskyFest Experience
We want your WhiskyFest experience to be a memorable one. Your ticket 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.
Taste from a selection of 300 whiskies
Meet the whisky distillers, master blenders, and other whisky experts who will be in attendance. WhiskyFest Chicago will feature over 300 whiskies from around the world. 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, beer 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 have the opportunity to taste samples that may not be available in the main ballroom.
