Whether guests choose VIP or general admission tickets, whisky lovers are also welcome to:

• Stop by pop-ups from local bars Daddy-O, American Whiskey and others to sample signature cocktails and private label pours.

• Secure a seat for a Master Class, the hour-long tutored tastings guided by international whiskies experts, ambassadors, and master distillers who provide a detailed exploration of whisky enjoyment in an intimate setting. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.whiskyliveusa.com.

Titan brands like Ardbeg, Maker's Mark, Dalwhinnie, Glenmorangie, Elijah Craig, Oban, Talisker, Yamazaki and Lagavulin (in its 200th year), will be featured side by side with dozens of spirits from boutique distilleries, including Balcones, Usquaebach and New York’s own Van Brunt Stillhouse as well as other award-winning world whiskies from producers in the US, Scotland, Ireland, Australia and elsewhere.
