The NYC Bourbon Bash is an awesome day of fun, excitement, entertainment and, of course, excellent bourbon. Enjoy eight premium bourbons at 8 of NYC’s leading bars.
On June 13, Bourbon Bashers will enjoy small food tastes as well as a tasting of a different select bourbon at 8 different venues in downtown New York City, all included in their ticket price. A portion of all proceeds will go to benefit local non-profit and charitable organizations.
So come rock out all day with great bourbon, delicious food, music, and the most fun you can legally have. You’ll leave with some great memories. The Official NYC Bourbon Bash is a production of Craft Hospitality LLC, the team behind the very popular NYC Whiskey Walk and NYC Craft Distillers Festival.
Ticket includes small food bites to kick things off, and 8 premium bourbon tastings (1 oz. serving size) at 8 of downtown New York’s favorite bars during this daylong adventure. As you spend the day meeting new people and having a great time, your bourbons can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or with a soda mixer. (Designated Drivers are absolutely welcome and free!) Ticket also gets you no cover at any participating venue. You also get a warm fuzzy feeling (not only from the bourbon) knowing that a portion of all ticket sales go to benefit local New York City nonprofit, FreeArts NYC, helping underserved children re-imagine their worlds through the creative arts. Free Arts NYC provides underserved children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential. Free Arts NYC takes a “cradle to college” approach, providing arts-based mentoring for youth from pre-K all the way through high school.
When you check in, you will receive an all-access VIP laminated badge. It will have the names of the participating venues printed on it. The bartenders at each venue will have hole punchers and will give you a (friendly!) punch on your badge when they serve you their specialty bourbon. Please be kind to your bartenders and servers, who work hard to provide you with a great time. After check in, you may proceed in any order and at any pace that you choose.
All passes must be picked up by each participant, individually. You must have a valid, government-issued ID when picking up your pass. All participants must be 21 or over. All tickets are sold through the event’s Ticketing Agent online. Check-in closes at 3:00pm sharp. If you haven’t picked up your pass by then, you will forfeit it. Please plan accordingly.
This event includes the opportunity to drink a lot of bourbon. If you can’t finish, don’t — there is no prize for doing so. It’s very important to drink responsibly. Even in your college-prime, you would still have difficulty attempting this task. The point is to visit as many of the venues as possible, not to finish each and every bourbon taste.
We strongly encourage and celebrate designated drivers. There is no cost to a designated driver.
