WHISKIES OF THE WORLD ISN’T YOUR AVERAGE BEVERAGE TASTING
BY: Karon Warren
Get ready to wet your whistle. On Oct. 26, Whiskies of the World returns to the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel, bringing together more than 250 distilled spirits from around the world. But you don’t have to be a whiskey connoisseur to enjoy the festivities.
“This event combines all levels of interest, from the whiskey curious to the whiskey aficionado,” says Douglas Smith, event coordinator and spokesperson. “The goal is for everyone to discover or learn something new about whiskey, from whiskey and food pairings to whiskey and cigar pairings.”
General admission tickets to the event, which benefits the North Atlanta Rotary Foundation, include entrance to the main tasting hall, food pairings and a souvenir tasting glass. VIP ticket holders also enjoy a VIP hour and VIP pours. Although not black tie, attendees are encouraged to wear kilts, jackets, party dresses or similar cocktail apparel. All attendees must be 21 years or older.
Oct. 26, 5-9 p.m.
General admission $120, VIP tickets $145
