Take a Damn Dram of Liquid Gold
On October 24, I visited Whiskey Washback #WWNYC at The Bowery Hotel. The event featured 75 types of premium Whiskey, Bourbon, Rye, Scotch and "more" - the "more" includes Zacapa Rum, an ultra premium rum that I work on! I loved seeing attendees sample it as an Old Fashioned. It is great to hear many consumers say they LOVE the rum even if they don't think they are rum drinkers. Zacapa tastes more similar to an aged brown spirit (think Whisk(e)y, Scotch, Bourbon) than a stereotypical rum.
VIP tickets ($88) covered entry from 7pm-10pm and General Admission tickets ($65) covered entry from 8pm-10pm. These tickets covered sampling the spirits, some nibbles, alcohol-infused chocolates from Baseema Chocolate, live music and much more!
I had an incredible time at this event! If I wasn't able to attend for work, I would have attended anyway! I highly recommend checking it out next year - get the VIP tickets and beat the crowds :)
