“It’s just the booze dancing…” is pleased to share details with you about a very special whisky event that will take place over two nights at two separate locations in the Fall of 2013. Why is this event so special? Because it is being hosted by the Jewish Whisky Company which was founded by whisky bloggers like us (Joshua Hatton of JewMalt Whisky Reviews, Jason Johnstone-Yellin of Guid Scotch Drink, and Seth Klaskin)!
In addition to the press release below, they have also supplied us with a discount code which will take 10% off of the general admission ticket (the discont code is “booze13” ).
As of this writing, there are at least two of us that plan to attend this event. We hope to see you there!
Without further ado, below is more information about what promises to be a spectacular event. Many thanks to the Jewish Whisky Company for sharing this press release with us!
Now in its second year, the Jewish Whisky Company is proud to announce the return of Whisky Jewbilee, its charity whisky festival.
While open to all lovers of whisky, rye and bourbon, the Whisky Jewbilee began as a charitable, Glatt Kosher catered whisky tasting event for the New York-based Jewish community. In 2012, on short notice and with less than 41⁄2 weeks of planning, the Jewish Whisky Company was able to gather 32 brands, 150+ whiskies and 250 attendees to the inaugural Whisky Jewbilee held in NYC.
Having the luxury of time to plan for 2013, the Jewish Whisky Company saw an opportunity to plan for two Whisky Jewbilee events.
Both events will be Glatt Kosher catered by the award winning Ari White, Executive Chef, Gemstone Caterers; Pitboss, Wandering Que.
This year attendees can expect more than 45 brands, 200+ whiskies and for the first time, a special festival bottling for the Whisky Jewbilee. Attendees can expect the low entry fee of $110 to get into one of the events. Members of the Jewish Whisky Company’s Single Cask Nation can expect a price of $90 for a ticket to either Whisky Jewbilee event.
The dates of the Whisky Jewbilee events are as follows:
Wednesday, October 9th in Mt. Kisco NY at Grand Prix, New York’s premier racing and gaming center (333 N Bedford Rd, Mt Kisco, NY 10549).
- Gaming is from 5pm – 7pm (all racing and gaming ends when tasting begins)
- Tasting is from 7pm – 10pm
- Tickets for the Mt. Kisco event can be purchased here: https://whiskyjewbilee.ticketbud.com/mt-kisco
- Maximum capacity: 600 people
Thursday, October 10th in New York City at Zanger Hall (347 W 34th St, New York, NY 10001).
- Tasting is from 7pm – 10pm
- Cigars and bourbon outside (weather permitting) from 8pm – 10pm
- Tickets for the NYC event can be purchased here: https://whiskyjewbilee.ticketbud.com/nycity
- Maximum capacity: 325 people
The special festival bottling is of a single barrel from Heaven Hill distilleries and is a 15 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon from a high-rye mash bill, bottled at 122.6 proof (61.3% ABV). The barrel rendered fewer than 100 bottles and is expected to be priced at $110 per bottle. Those who wish to purchase the festival bottling will have to sign up at the Jewish Whisky Company table at either Whisky Jewbilee event; 40 bottles will be allotted to both Whisky Jewbilee events. This very special Whisky Jewbilee bottling of Heaven Hill Kentucky Straight Bourbon is first come, first served.
Jewish Whisky Company, LLC has partnered with Support Connection as the charity organization of choice for these two events. Support Connection is a Not-for-profit organization providing free breast cancer and ovarian cancer support services for patients and their families: http://www.supportconnection.org. A portion of proceeds from both Whisky Jewbilee events will benefit Support Connection.
