The Twisted Tail In Society Hill Is Hosting Its Eighth Annual Whiskey Bonanza
The annual ticketed whiskey-tasting event celebrates Bourbon Heritage Month by offering guests access to a smorgasbord of whiskeys. Established Philadelphia bartenders will incorporate the whiskey offerings into original cocktails for attendees to vote on in a cocktail competition. The participating distilleries include Buffalo Trace Distillery, Chicken Cock Whiskey, New Liberty Distillery, Woodford Reserve Distillery, Heaven Hill Distillery, Few Spirits, Widow Jane Distillery, and many more.
Bonanza attendees can opt for a special VIP hour with early admission at 6 p.m., enabling access to rare and hard-to-find whiskeys unavailable during the main event. The VIP hour also guarantees guests the first-hand opportunity to enjoy The Twisted Tail’s traditional Suckling Pig Roast. Adding to the fun, a Philadelphia-based food truck will be on-site from 8 to 10 p.m. in front of The Twisted Tail to satisfy any food cravings between whiskey tastings for an additional price.
Tickets for the Whiskey Bonanza are $60 for general admission and $75 for VIP, with a $40 Designated Driver option also available for those looking to only enjoy the victuals and not imbibe.
As part of Bourbon Heritage month, The Twisted Tail also hosts weekly Meet the Maker events every Friday in September, featuring two to three whiskey brands and opportunities for one-on-one conversations with experts and master blenders. The events are free to attend with RSVP and are kept intimate with limited space.
