Tonight from 6:30pm to 10pm is the 1st Annual San Francisco WhiskyFest at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco. The event is sponsored by Malt Advocate magazine and will feature samplings of over 250 of the world’s finest single malt and blended Scotch whiskies, quality Irish whiskies, the best bourbons and Tennessee whiskies, Japanese, Welsh, Canadian and other rare and unreleased whiskies of the world.

With a focus on whisky education, master distillers and experts from all over the world will be presenting (and pouring!). There will even be a chocolate/whisky tasting hosted by local John Scharffenberger, President of Scharffen Berger Chocolate.

While the WhiskyFest website claims the event is sold out, Kim Laidlaw got her tickets early and will be reviewing the event on BAB next week. Check back for her musings from the whisky-soaked field.
