Get Your Single-Malt On: It's SF Whisky Week

Scotch lovers, start your engines: this Tuesday marks the first day of Whisky Week, a five-day series of events and tastings that culminates in the annual WhiskyFest, which features over 250 libations from around the globe. Whether you're a neophyte looking to learn more about an unfamiliar spirit or an expert excited to try all those ultra-pricey new expressions you've been reading about, this week has plenty to offer.

WhiskyWeek Is Upon Us: Where to Imbibe

If you're a fan of whisky, you'll want to hit up one of these WhiskyWeek activities, which all lead up to the annual WhiskeyFest on Friday at the San Francisco Marriot. Expand your knowledge of the spirit at these events:

 

Thursday is the new Friday. At 1 pm, Jimmy Russell, master distiller at Wild Turkey, will be discussing his life, signing bottles, and educating whiskey devotees on the virtues of Wild Turkey at John Walker & Company on Sutter Street (where all Wild Turkey products will also be 15% off during the event).

Whiskyfest This Week: More than a Wee Dram

It's October, it's cool and wet. No better time for a wee nip of whisky—or maybe 200 nips of whisky, if you're planning to attend Whiskyfest this Friday. It's the biggest blow-out whisky tasting in the US, and it only happens in three cities: New York, Chicago, and SF.
