The Whiskies of the World Expo today released the exciting line up of brands participating at this year’s event which will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2014, on The San Francisco Belle, Hornblower Yacht (docked).

Now in its 15th year, the Whiskies of the World Expo gathers the world’s most fascinating distilled spirits along with their makers and ambassadors to give its guests an opportunity to sample, learn and experience the art of whisky. A San Francisco favorite, the Expo is adding new and exciting details to the evening to make sure that this is the event of the year.

From the biggest brand names to small hard-to-find boutique whiskies, there will be a spirit to suit everyone’s taste. In addition to incredible spirits from every corner of the world: as close as California to as far as France, India, Australia, Taiwan, and Japan, the Expo will also feature seminars conducted by world famous Master Distillers and Brand Ambassadors. Many of the seminars are specially created for this year’s event:

Guests will also enjoy a full buffet dinner, mixology demonstrations, Celtic crafts, whisky pairing with artisanal foods such as premium chocolate, organic jerky, sustainable seafood, handcrafted cheese, and chutney, a live Pipe and Drum Concert and more, including some surprises. In addition, the Expo will allocate the top deck for Cigar and Whisk(e)y pairing, a standing out component of the event.
