Today’s post is for all of my whiskey friends living in St. Louis and surrounding areas. The good folks over at Synergy Productions are putting the Whiskey In The Winter festival on December 1st. Yours truly is going to be there and I hope to see some familiar faces. Drop me a line and let me know if you’re attending in the comments. Perhaps we can share a few drinks together at the event.
Here’s the details from the official press release:
Whiskey In The Winter, the St. Louis whiskey festival, will take place from 6:00-9:30pm on December 1, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis At The Arch. Whiskey In The Winter will be highlighted by a grand tasting featuring 150+ whiskies including single malt and blended Scotch, bourbon, Irish, Tennessee, Canadian, Missouri, and Japanese whiskies. Representatives from the sampled whiskies will be on hand to answer questions and provide insight on their products. In addition to the grand tasting, the evening will include six education seminars by industry experts, whiskey-inspired food stations by the chefs of the Hyatt Regency St. Louis At The Arch, whiskey cocktails created by leading mixologists from local St. Louis restaurants and bars (BC’s Kitchen, Blood & Sand, Mike Shannon’s Steaks and Seafood, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Salt, Sanctuaria), and a “Golden Ticket” selection of prestigious rare whiskeys with a retail value of $100 or more.
“We are excited to produce a premier whiskey festival in St. Louis- whiskey popularity continues to grow in the US and Missouri is a leading whiskey market in the country,” states Amit Dhawan, managing partner of SYNERGY Productions LLC, the event producer. “We are creating a festival that appeals to both whiskey novices and experts and showcases the wide world of whiskey- the mix of seminars and whiskies will offer something for everyone and help create an exciting evening of entertainment and whiskey education.”
