The producers of Whisky LIVE, the annual, internationally renowned whisky tasting event, turns it up a notch with an exciting new Whisky Nite! format at the Metropolitan Pavilion on February 28, as part of the worldwide tour.

The special Whisky Nite! event builds the exclusive experience of tasting more than 250 of the world’s best whiskies along with dinner provided by New York’s most acclaimed restaurateur, Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events, and specialty drinks from the city’s top cocktail bars including Flatiron Room, Copper & Oak, Brandy Library, Fine & Rare, American Whiskey, and Porchlight.

And some lucky (randomly awarded) attendees are going to taste some very coveted whiskies! Pappy, yes…but much more!

Master distillers, brand ambassadors and industry experts are on hand sharing their insights, history and story of each whisky; some making their first-time ever US debut. In the spotlight for Whisky Nite! are, among others, JP Wisers 35-year-old which recently was named Canada’s best whiskey for 2018, and the Pilot Project Pavilion; featuring whiskies from McLaren Vale Distillery, Lime Burners Distillery, Craft Works Distillery, and Journeyman Distillery – four of the eight distilleries from around the globe that collaborated to produce a rare blend of whiskey currently aging in a 100-year old port barrel under the watchful eye of John Rochfort of McLaren Vale in Australia.

The VIP Experience

  • Whisky LIVE VIP Tickets to the Whisky Nite! Experience are $199 and include early access at 5:30 PM, 30 minutes prior to General Admission. The exclusive VIP tasting lounge features select premium bottlings available throughout the night (many limited or no longer available).  Additionally, this year’s event will see the arrival of many whiskies from Australia, a closed distillery from the Czech Republic and single barrel selections from India which have never been poured in the United States.

VIP guests will receive a signature Whisky Nite! tasting glass in addition to the evening’s program, early admission, and exclusive access to special bottlings all night long.

General Admission Ticket Holders

General admission tickets are priced at $139 and for those ticket holders, doors open at 6:00 PM. The ticket price includes an event program and a souvenir Glencairn tasting glass.
