Each guest will receive 1 ticket for each of the specialty cocktail branded sample bars (3-5 cocktail samples per event). Don’t think of a traditional bar where you walk up and tell the bartender what you’d like. The cocktail bars are hosted by showcasing brands and typically offer just one specialty cocktail per bar. Each attendee will have one redemption ticket for each of the cocktail bars. This redemption method is only used for the cocktail bars and not for the general sampling of whiskeys (it’s rooted in an effort to make sure that showcasing brands have enough inventory for everyone).

What brands will be attending Whisky Riot?

The final list will be evolving until February 2024, but updates will be shared on the official website, the TIXR page and social media regularly as new brands hop on board. In the meantime, check out the list of historic participating brands on the website.
