Whiskeys of the World Offers Chance to Sample 100 Whiskeys

Sample more than 100 whiskeys from international distillers at the upcoming Whiskeys of the World, a fundraiser benefiting Chase After a Cure. Presented by IceBox Bar, Ben Arnold Beverage Co. and The Local Palate, the event is 6-9 p.m. Oct. 15 at Harborside East at Patriots Point, 28 Bridgeside Blvd. in Mount Pleasant.

Tickets are $65 each and available at worldofwhiskey.eventbrite.com. All attendees receive a commemorative Glencairn glass.

The evening includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment and the opportunity to learn about how whiskey is distilled and aged. At Whiskeys of the World, 35 distilleries will be represented, giving guests the chance to talk one-on-one with distillery representatives about their whiskeys and the creation process.

“This is a chance to taste whiskeys and talk to distillers. We’ll have Scottish, American, Irish and Japanese whiskey,” said Boris Van Dyck, principal at IceBox Bar. “Guests can enter as consumers of whiskey and leave as connoisseurs.”

Whiskeys of the World benefits Chase After a Cure, a local nonprofit raising awareness about childhood cancer and money for pediatric cancer research at Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital.
