Share Article

Hundreds of Whisky Expressions, Spirits Educators, Specialty Cocktails, Dinner, Book Signings and some very special surprises!

The producers of Whisky LIVE, the internationally renowned whisky tasting event, turns it up a notch on this year’s annual US tour with an exciting new Whisky Nite! format touching down at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York on February 28 and at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, DC on March 2nd.

The special Whisky Nite! event builds the exclusive experience of tasting more than 200 of the world’s best whiskies along with dinner provided by acclaimed restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events (New York) and Fairmont’s extraordinary culinary team (DC). Spirituous authors sign their books along the singular pours and creative cocktails that will flow at each event, courtesy of that town’s top whisky and cocktail bars. Expect to sip libations from Jack Rose Dining Saloon, Flatiron Room, Copper & Oak, Brandy Library, Fine & Rare, American Whiskey, Daddy-O, Porchlight and more.

Master distillers, brand ambassadors and industry experts are on hand sharing their insights, history and story of each whisky; some making their US debut. In the spotlight for Whisky Nite! are, among others, JP Wisers 35-year-old which recently was named Canada’s best whiskey for 2018, and the Pilot Project Pavilion; featuring whiskies from McLaren Vale Distillery, Lime Burners Distillery, Craft Works Distillery, and Journeyman Distillery – four of the eight distilleries from around the globe that collaborated to produce a rare blend of whiskey currently aging in a 100-year old port barrel under the watchful eye of John Rochfort of McLaren Vale in Australia.

The VIP Experience
Whisky LIVE VIP Tickets to the Whisky Nite! Experience are $199 and include early access 30 minutes prior to General Admission. The exclusive VIP tasting lounge features select premium bottlings available throughout the night (many limited or no longer available). Additionally, this year’s event will see the arrival of many whiskies from Australia, a closed distillery from the Czech Republic and single barrel selections from India which have never been poured in the United States.

VIP guests will receive a signature Whisky Nite! tasting glass in addition to the evening’s program, early admission, and exclusive access to special bottlings all night long.

General Admission Ticket Holders
General admission tickets are priced at $139 and for those ticket holders, doors open at 6:00 PM (NY) and 6:30 (DC). The ticket price includes an event program and a souvenir Glencairn tasting glass.

With tickets, whisky lovers will have the opportunity to:
