Take a trip around the world with over 400 globally pulled whiskies, bourbons and scotches—including Welsh, Canadian and Japanese varieties—at this 18th annual brown-spirits blowout. Sip limitless samples of top-shelf booze including Pappy Van Winkle, Duncan Taylor and Wemyss Malts, then get schooled at workshops from whisky-making bigwigs like Dr. Bill Lumsden of Glenmorangie and Jim Beam master distiller Fred Noe. Beyond the peaty stuff, find selections of gin, tequila and cognac.
