How does the whiskey tasting on Highland Ave. work? For Whiskey Sampler, Highland Pass and VIP Key tickets, you will be issued tickets to hand to whiskeys reps who are presenting the 35+ brands in the tasting tents.
When should I get to the event? The event runs from 4–9pm so anytime after 4:00 is fine…BUT the later you arrive, the greater the chance that some of the popular whiskeys will be gone. So don’t arrive at 8:00pm if you want the full choice of 35+ whiskeys.
Can I buy whiskey at the event? Yes. You can buy whiskey cocktails at our cash bar. For buying bottles of the whiskeys being presented that night, you can scan the QR codes posted at the tasting tents to order whiskey from the Mansion which can be picked up at the Mansion on or after the following Wednesday, February 8th.
