        2019 Whiskey Festival


          On Thursday, October 17, Whiskey Festival returned for its fifth year to Flourish by Legendary Events.

          Guests enjoyed whiskey samplings from a wide array of top-shelf whiskeys, bourbons, and rum. In addition to sampling the finest whiskeys, our guests had the opportunity to meet and talk to master distillers, spirits ambassadors, and the owners of some of the most talked about whiskeys—including top shelf standbys and the newest up and comers generating a lot of buzz.

          A host of Southern food favorites were offered to pair with the whiskey tastings and guests were entertained with live music and a host of activities to complement the experience, including cigar rolling.
