Midtown Wine & Spirits PRESENTS: The 2nd ANNUAL NASHVILLE WHISKEY FESTIVAL: September 11th-14th, 2013!

Stay tuned for info about the 2014 Whiskey Festival!

Nashville Whiskey Festival Logo

It will be hard to top last year’s Nashville Whiskey Festival blowout. That won’t stop us from making this year’s celebration a double, featuring Scotch, Irish, Canadian, and Japanese whiskeys in addition to bourbon and Tennessee whiskey, our very own “Native Spirit.”

Nashville Whiskey Fest 2013 is going to be bigger, better, bolder, smokier, and peat-ier than anything you’ve ever seen. Join us for a week of contests, sampling sessions, seminars, and spirits education panels beginning on September 11th and culminating in a Grand Tasting at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum Curb Conservatory and Courtyard on September 14th, 2013.

Regardless of personal preferences, the simple truth is that Music City likes its whiskey the way it likes its music: handcrafted carefully and with passion by talented technicians.
Come and meet the men and women behind your favorite whiskeys and help us establish a new Nashville tradition!
