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.

  • $29 for one general-admission ticket (a $60 value)
  • $37 for one VIP ticket (a $75 value)

General-admission entry includes 20 sampling vouchers and lets ticketholders explore a range of spirits from indie distilleries around the world during the expo's normal hours of 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. VIPs are given 30 sampling vouchers and can start roaming early at 5 p.m. along with a complimentary tasting glass.

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.

It's was a great learning experience especially for bartenders looking to improve their skills.

It was a fun event. Many interesting vendors. It was very very crowded which takes away the experience of enjoyment. I hope that the next time they will consider limiting the amount of people they allow or simply make it at a venue that accommodates alot more people. I would recommend this event.
