Houston Whiskey Festival
The Houston Whiskey Festival was unveiled in 2014 as a celebration of whiskey and the people who drink it. At the festival, attendees can taste test a wide selection of spirits, including single malts, bourbons, ryes, and some of whiskey's cousins, such as vodka, wine and gin.
In addition to the elixirs themselves, first-come, first-served seminars shift the spotlight onto the master blenders, distillers, and experts responsible for creating such delicious libations. Live country, alternative, jazz, and other genre bands are part of the scheduled entertainment.
