I know where whiskey enthusiasts will be gathering on Saturday, January 20, 2024. They will be at the Harborside Atrium in Jersey City, New Jersey, for the Jersey City Whiskey & Spirits Festival. This premiere extravaganza will take you into the wonderful world of whiskey.
Commercial distilleries began introducing whiskey made from wheat and rye in the late 18th century. This lovely amber liquid has captivated people for hundreds of years. Whiskeys are loved the world over.
The whiskey flavor ranges from smokey and earthy to bold and spicy. At the Whiskey & Spirits Festival, you can sample all these flavors and more.
You’ll receive a keepsake tasting glass which you can use to sample an outstanding selection of whiskeys and craft spirits, including all the Kentucky bourbons, Mexican tequila, Russian vodka and more.
If whiskey is not your favorite, other spirits will be available for tasting. There will be over 100 different spirits and three hours of unlimited tastings.
You can talk with the distillers and they can answer any questions you might have about the distillery process. They’ll tell you all about their spirits and you can learn about whiskey’s velvety textures and aromatic tasting notes.
Should all the sipping make you hungry, the festival has this covered. Some of the area’s top food vendors will be there with delicious dishes and snacks available for purchase.
There will be live music throughout the Whiskey Festival. Enjoy the music as you stroll from table to table for your next tasting. Compare notes on the samples with other whiskey enthusiasts. There will be a dance floor if you’d like to move with the music. Or you can compete with your friends in interactive games.
So bring your friends, sniff, swirl, sip and savor whiskeys. Expand your palate as you discover new flavors and also expand your knowledge of whiskey. Enjoy great vibes and great spirits!
There will be two sessions. The afternoon session will be from 1 pm to 4 pm with the evening session going from 6 pm to 9 pm.
