Welcome to Whiskies of the World Atlanta 2017!
We are excited to be at the Westin Buckhead this year. We have over 250 whiskies from which to choose at this year’s event! The complete pour list is available on the website through the Featured Brands page. We also have an interactive app; see below!
How to maximize your experience:
Drink plenty of water the day before the event. You want to be hydrated. Whisky samples will be 0.25 oz. in order to fully enjoy the aroma. Do not drink the full sample. You only need a small portion of this for tasting or better yet, take thesample in your mouth for the flavor, then rinse it back into your glass and dump. Each table will have a dump bucket to dispose of the remainder of your sample. This allows you to try more whiskies and learn more from our wonderful ambassadors. Drink water between each sample. We are looking forward to seeing you Saturday at 5pm for VIP and 6pm for General Admission!
Whiskies of the World is a classy night out on the town for all of our attendees! We encourage you to dress up, especially wearing kilts, dinner jackets and party dresses. We know you will love the ambience of The Westin Buckhead and being among fellow attendees all decked out for a fancy evening! No t-shirts, shorts, flip flops, torn clothing or exercise wear is allowed. Thanks!
