World of Whiskies 2012

Last night was our Annual World of Whiskies event, held at the Lincoln Park Binny’s Beverage Depot. The event sold out a week in advance, and it looked like everybody made it.

 

What a tasting! There were just shy of sixty tables, representing more distilleries, bottlers and producers than we could count. Food samples were provided by neighborhood favorite Franks ‘N’ Dawgs, delicious cake from Tipsycake (see that Jameson bottle in the pictures below? That’s a cake from Tipsycake), plus cheeses and more.

 

The pictures below don’t do the event justice. They just can’t. It isn’t the sort of thing you can capture with a lens. So next year, when you hear rumors that Binny’s World of Whiskies is happening again, be sure to RSVP right away.

 

As always, a huge thanks to all the producers, importers and distributors who pour themselves into these great spirits. And a huger thanks to everybody who made it to Binny’s on a Thursday night to taste some of the best whiskies on the planet.

World of Whiskies 2011

   On April 14th, We held our annual World of Whiskies event at our Lincoln Park store. This could have been the best whisky event ever. Or, at least a unique opportunity to mingle with the people who make the spirits you love. This year, the event features over 20 sneak previews, items that have not yet hit the market yet. Pretty cool, huh?

   Thanks to everybody for coming, and thanks to the producers who came out to share their creations with everybody.
