Whiskey Live, Coast to Coast

In a few weeks, whiskey enthusiasts on both sides of the U.S. will be able to get their whiskey fix with two upcoming Whiskey Live events. Starting things off on October 13 is Whiskey Live Los Angeles, taking place at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. There will be a wide range of whiskies on hand for tasting—everything from scotch to bourbon—and guests will be able to mingle with distillers from around the world. This year will also feature the Oban Experience, which is an opportunity to get immersed in all that is Oban and sample this world-class single malt from the west coast of Scotland. Standard advance tickets cost $99, which includes six sample vouchers, food and a tasting glass. Advance VIP tickets cost $129 and give you earlier access to the festival. For more details and to purchase tickets, head to whiskylive.com.

On the heals of Whiskey Live LA comes Whiskey Live Ft. Lauderdale, taking place at the Harbor Beach Resort and Spa. Take in amazing views of the ocean while you sample whiskies from around the world and learn about coopering, whisky blending, cocktails and more. Advance ticket prices are the same as the LA event, and to get more info and/or to buy tickets, head here.
