This past Friday night I attend St. Louis’ whiskey festival – Whiskey in the Winter – along with fellow Bourbon & Banter writer, Lindsey Wehking. As a proud sponsor of the event again this year, we were thrilled to see even more folks attending than last year. Whiskey in the Winter has truly become a destination event with attendees traveling to St. Louis from 30 different states. To help accommodate for this growth the event will have more space available next year to accommodate a crowd of around 1,800 (this year capacity was 1,500).
This year’s even had over 300 whiskies available for tasting along with educational seminars, gourmet food and cocktail stations. They even managed to sneak in a booth featuring bourbon-themed donuts from Strange Donuts and Jameson Black Barrel liquid nitrogen ice cream. No matter your whiskey or food preference the event had you covered. Based on the feedback we received from folks during the event there wasn’t anyone going home disappointed. Make sure to check out the event’s website for more details on this year’s event so you finalize your decision to attend next year. Continue Reading →
