Whiskey Fest Set for Thursday, October 27th

In addition to whiskey and other fine spirits, there will also be lots of great food.

Philadelphia magazine’s Whiskey Fest is of course about whiskey but that isn’t all. As you may have noticed, the exact branding is Whiskey and Fine Spirits Fest, which means all sorts of booze will be available for sampling, including from 12 spirit lounges. The event is also serving as the kickoff to the inaugural Philly Craft Spirits Week and 11 local distilleries will be set up to show you what’s happening in Philadelphia’s booming craft scene.

And since you can’t live by whiskey alone, there are also tons of excellent food options to choose from; including  Village Whiskey, Zeppoli and Double Knot in the Infiniti Lounge, where there will be hand-rolled sushi and Japanese whiskey.

The festival takes place on Thursday, October 27th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 801 Market Street, the former Strawbridges. VIP tickets are $160 and include limited pours and early admittance while regular Grand Tasting tickets are $99 and provide access from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
