Binny's World of Whiskies

This event is now closed to new RSVPs. Full-price tickets may still be available from Binny's; check their website to find out.

Our good friend at Binny's, Brett Pontoni, has again arranged for us to access half-price tickets for their World of Whiskies event.

If you've attended this in the past, you'll know it's the preview for WhiskyFest. Dozens of single malt, bourbon and other distributors will be on hand, pouring the same whiskies that they will feature at WhiskyFest that weekend.

This event is likely to sell out, given that WhiskyFest tickets are already gone, so we need to know if you're attending or not NO LATER THAN APRIL 8.

Given the discount they are offering to our group, you should only sign up if you are SURE you can attend. They are holding spots for us and we cannot take advantage of their generosity, so please be responsible for participating if you say you're going to be there. Don't take a spot someone else can use if you're not absolutely sure you can attend.

In order to be placed on the half-price ($30) list, you'll need to provide your full name and email address to me. Email me directly at [masked], please.  That includes everyone who's already RSVP'd on this event page; even though you've said you're going, I still need your full name and email to put you on the official list.

I will confirm all RSVPs, so you know you're on the list. I will also send reminders to those who are confirmed prior to the reservation deadline. And I'll provide information on how to get our discount to all confirmed attendees.

Hope you can join us for this great opportunity!

    It was great to see everyone that I ran into, and it was a great event!

    I also thought it was more packed this year, although there were more tables as well. But it was definitely hard to get to the front of the line for a tasting.

    I was also disappointed that the discount on bottles was only good for purchases made that night, instead of for a whole week like it's been in the past.

    I felt the food was better last year, but then again, who really has time for food at an event like this. I wish they could do it twice a year. Looking forward to next year already!

      Would have to agree. The gourmet hot dogs were fabulous, but I haven't had a chance to go to the Haute Dawg (I think). Things change. Just a few years back it was only a private affair with a few good customers and at no charge for entry. Exit, however, used to set me back at about $1,000 for a mixed case. I'm curious as to the sales at this event per person. Mine? $0!

    Always a good event. Even if Laphroaig was not represented this year.

      They were there earlier but were arrested for letting the air out of the rocket truck. Or was it the sales ( pun intended) of the folks who own the rocket?

      Some great tastes. The Dalmore king Alex III was especially memorable as a new one to me. What was the Glen kinchie?can't read my handwriting... :-)

      April 26, 2013

    • Hertha

      Anne, I think it was the Glenkinchie Distiller's Edition 1991.

    Great selections of whiskey's and felt the number of attendees was with in limits for all to get to the different tables. I would go back next year. Thanks to Hertha for organizing this!!!

    A wonderful tasting. Did anyone taste the Bruichladdich DNA 1985?

    1 · April 25, 2013

    • Hertha

      I did, and it was excellent. The Glenkinchie sherry expression won the night for me, though.

      April 26, 2013

  • Brian D.

    I just wanted to say thank you for stopping at my table tonight and tasting our different expressions. If I can assiat anyone please contact me at [masked]

    Hertha - what a spectacular event at Binny's. We tasted so many delicious single malt's and really expanded our horizons. Look forward to the next smaller gathering where we can all enjoy sharing our new favorites.
