After a few temperamental teases, colder weather is finally gracing Dallas with its presence. Besides tucking away summer attire, and pulling out tights, sweaters and boots, this means blessing our bones with grub that sticks and drinks that warm. The Whisky Extravaganza, which comes to Dallas on October 18th, focuses on the latter of that sentiment. Held at the stunning event venue Sixty Five Hundred, on Cedar Springs Rd., the event will showcase over 100+ expressions for a whisky wonderland your palate won’t soon forget.

Unlimited Samples

Come ready to sniff, whiff and wet your whistle with hundreds of whiskies. During the event, you can enjoy unlimited samples, so be sure to take notes on your favorites expressions and pace yourself. You may just find a whisky perfect for the upcoming winter season.

A Bit to Bite

An evening of superb whisky deserves to be paired with tasty and beautiful bites. Local culinary creators will provide light fare for the evening including sushi creations from chef and owner of Uchi, Tyson Cole. Yeli of Yellibelly Chocolates will also be in attendance with flavor-infused chocolates.
