Drinking small-batch whiskey is a great way to support local artisans, who are generally much nicer than the cold, distant artisans that came from outer space. Check out earthbound spirits with this Groupon.

Independent Spirits Expo

Independent distillers, bottlers, importers, and distributors converge on Chicago and set up shop to display and sample their small-batch, artisanal wares for the annual Independent Spirits Expo. The exhibitors come from all over the world, featuring more than 500 spirits including vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and mezcal. In the past exhibitors have included Bunnahabhain of Scotland alongside Indiana's Redemption Rye bourbon. Meanwhile, Martin Miller's Gin will show off its Icelandic cocktail companions as Kavalan Whiskey struts its stuff with its eponymous spirit.
