San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2017
The Whiskies of the World Expo today released the exciting line up of brands participating at this year’s events which will be held on Thursday, March 30 in San Jose and on Friday, March 31 in San Francisco. In San Jose over 700 guests celebrate the fine spirits at Forager Tasting Room & Eatery, downtown San Jose's private events venue striving to highlight local craft culture. The San Francisco Belle, Hornblower Yacht (remains docked) is the destination for over 1200 whisky enthusiasts, experts, restaurant and bar owners, and industry specialists.
The flagship event of San Francisco, now in its 18th year, 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 Japan, the Expo will also feature seminars conducted by Master Distillers and Brand Ambassadors.
