The four-day event features a wide range of bourbon whiskeys from the Tennessee region and also includes whisky malts from Scotland, Japan, Ireland and France.

Stagg and more. The night will also include food from Porter Road Butcher and the Bloomy Rind, plus a performance by indie pop pianist, Reed Pittman.
