A Festival of Whiskeys

08/02/2018

StepOutBuffalo.com and Tommyrotter Distillery have teamed up to bring the first Rochester Whiskey Riot Festival to the Flower City after a sold-out event in Buffalo earlier this year.

The Rochester Whiskey Riot Festival is the event of the year for whiskey lovers and the whiskey curious. An event dedicated to exploring and encouraging the education of whiskey and all its varieties, the festival welcomes all lovers of the spirit, from aficionados to those just beginning their whiskey journey.

On Saturday, September 15, 2018, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, attendees can taste over 80 different whiskeys in a special take-home tasting glass, learn about the ins and outs of whiskey from master distillers and brand ambassadors, and sip classic whiskey cocktails served up at three exclusive popup bars hosted by Highland Park, Four Roses Bourbon and Tommyrotter Distillery. Attendees will have exclusive access to hour-long Whiskey Riot seminars, hosted by whiskey masters from Heaven Hill Distillery and The Macallan, producers of some of the best-loved American and Scotch whiskies.

Whiskey Riot celebrates and encourages education on the storied history, production, and experience of whiskey and all its varieties. For those who love to dance, shop, and eat – there will be a live DJ, vendors, and food available for purchase.

General admission tickets are now on sale for $45 and include admission to the event, samples of 80+ types of whiskey, a whiskey tasting glass to take home, access to three exclusive event popup bars, and exclusive access to event seminars. Parking and coat check are available. For more information and ticket purchases, please visit www.whiskeyriotfestival.com.
