Lehigh Valley Style Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival to Feature World-Class Spirits, Special Tastings

Bethlehem – The second annual Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival will take place Saturday, Oct. 5, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem, Northampton County. A VIP session featuring early access, exclusive food samples, and photo opportunities will take place from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM.

For the first time, products sold at the onsite Fine Wine & Good Spirits will be 10 percent off.

The event will feature more than 110 premium distilled spirits from world-renowned brands, as well as highly rated, reserve, and small batch products for sampling. The tasting list will feature whiskey, scotch, bourbon, vodka, tequila, rum, gin, cordials, and hand-crafted cocktails.

Jesse James Dupree, front man of the multi-platinum rock-and-roll group Jackyl, will sign bottles of Jesse James America’s Outlaw Whiskeys and Devil’s Devil Sinnamon Spirits Liqueur. In 2013, Dupree launched his own brand of spirits starting with bourbon and then adding flavored whiskeys a short time later. In addition, Dupree heads entertainment company Mighty Loud Enterprises, which created and produced the popular TruTV series Full Throttle Saloon. He will also answer customers’ questions and share stories and interesting facts about his products, music, and life.

Many of the spirits offered for tasting will be available for purchase at the onsite Fine Wine & Good Spirits store. Food will also be available so attendees may enjoy responsibly. All attendees, including designated drivers, must be at least 21 years old and provide valid identification at the event entrance.

General admission tickets from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM are $50; VIP tickets are $75; designated driver tickets are $10. A portion of all proceeds will benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley.
