Participants have access to dozens of whiskeys, including Russell’s Reserve, Wild Turkey, Dad’s Hat Rye, Basil Hayden, and Copper Kings Brandy, among the mix. Additionally, Pittsburgh’s Wigle Whiskey will make its debut at Whiskey Bonanza this year. Festival-goers can purchase an exclusive ticket to participate in a special VIP Hour from 6-7 pm featuring rare and hard-to-find whiskeys not available during the main event.

“This event is great because it brings Bourbon Club members as well as new customers to the restaurant,” said George Reilly, Master Craftsmen and owner of The Twisted Tail. “Attendees may discover a new interest or find that they actually like drinking scotch.”

Adding to the fun, there will be an exciting bartender competition featuring four bartenders competing for a cash prize by concocting an original winning whiskey cocktail. Attendees will sample and vote for their favorite drink. Chewy’s Food Truck, specializing in burgers, BLTs and “more tasty stuff”, and Foolish Waffles, serving sweet and savory waffles, will be on hand from 8-10 pm to provide all whiskey drinkers with a bite to eat.

“It’s great to have that collection of whiskeys in one place,” said Reilly. “It’s not too often that people are able to have that comparison side by side.”

Tickets are $60 for general admission and $75 for VIP. Tickets can be purchased at whiskeybonanza.com or in person at The Twisted Tail or via phone at 215-558-2471.
