Los Angeles magazine will return to the La Brea Tar Pits Museum for its second annual Whiskey Festival on Wednesday, February 22 from 7:30pm to 10:00pm. Not only can you enjoy both timeless classics and tastes from modern craft distilleries, but you are able to meet the master distillers. Experts will be attending from “distinguished and celebrated brands” such as Buffalo Trace, Four Roses Distillery, Kikori, Rebel Yell, WhistlePig, Woodford Reserve and Bruichladdich. If you are able to pronounce the last one, you are an honorary Scot. Also keep your eye out for one of our favorites, Macallan/Highland Park.
Inspired by an editorial by Ed Leibowitz, “Whiskey A Go Go: A 100-Proof Guide to the City’s Favorite Spirit,” the first Whiskey Festival impressed us last year with high quality drams and cocktails. This year we expect more of the same, along with a menu provided by Tres LA while The Aaron Durr Band entertains the room. In addition, guests will enjoy complimentary shoe shines and cigars.
Proceeds will benefit Para Los Niños, a local charity dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty for low-income children. Tickets are $95, all-inclusive. 21 years or older. Free parking is available after 7pm in the LACMA lot at Wilshire and Spaulding. Get your tickets now!
