On Friday 9 November Seattle hosts the Whiskey Extravaganza, a one-day event divided into two parts. The first is the Masterclass from 6pm to 7pm, that is hosted by experts. Attendees will have the opportunity to further their knowledge of the distilleries and to appreciate the production process, history and traditions of the industry.

The second part is the Tasting from 7:30 to 10pm. This features a wide range of single malt and premium whiskeys from all over the globe. The price includes a specially-produced tasting glass and a selection of food chosen to combine well with your drink. Novices are as welcome as those who know their malts.

Tickets for the Seattle Whiskey Extravaganza
