On Tuesday, November 15, Philadelphia magazine and PA Wine & Spirits Stores presented the 2011 Philadelphia Whiskey Festival at the Crystal Tea Room at the Wanamaker Building. Guests tasted an elite collection of spirits including whiskey, bourbon, scotch, tequila, vodka, and more. The evening also featured the debut of Smirnoff’s two newest flavors – Fluffed Marshmallow and Whipped Cream, The Manhattan Experience—a Woodford Reserve® inspired manhattan competition, a meet and greet and bottle-signing with Fred Noe—Master Distiller and the great grandson of Jim Beam, a chance to shake hands with living legend and Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson, and an array of gourmet food samplings from local upscale restaurants. The sold-out event raised approximately $8,000 to benefit SafeHome Philadelphia. KYW was the official media partner of the 2011 Philadelphia Whiskey Festival. Photography by Jessica Vermeer Hawkes.
