When are you likely to be able to don your best Gatsby attire and sample a choice of over 60 different spirits while listening to a 1920’s style band? Although not as big as the Brooklyn Whisky Fest above, the NYC Craft Distillers Festival is one giant party. They sell VIP admissions — granting the option to enter an hour earlier than your counterparts — and general admissions, both divided into two different sessions. If you want something beyond your typical scotch, then, this is the event for you. Their website has a full list of distillers, allowing you to plan your tastings and purchases in advance. With secret entertainment performances and food available, this event itself could be a great place to impress and settle the next deal.
Session 1, 1pm - 4pm
VIP early admission — $150 + $10.41 fee
General admission — $95 + $7.35 fee
Session 2, 7pm - 10pm
VIP early admission — $165 + $11.25 fee
General admission — $100 + $7.62 fee
Unfortunately, these events only happen once a year. If you crave a good selection of whiskeys and spirits all year round, why not come by Bar 44 at Royalton New York?
