The Kindred Spirits Whisky Tasting enjoys the informal title as the Largest Whisky Tasting in the South, both in attendance and representation of the whiskies!

Shifting away from the sit-down format, Kindred Spirits allows the taster to build his or her own self-paced whisky tasting. Each admission receives 15 or 35 coupons to redeem for half-ounce pours. With many whiskies to choose from, pours are redeemed for one to six coupons, depending on the price of the bottle (not its rarity!). Knowledgeable experts will staff the pouring stations, and additional coupons are available for purchase at the event.

“This event has always been a great way to learn about Irish and Scottish whiskies, and a huge value for sampling high-end distillations,” says Perry Launius, one of the Kindred Spirits’ organizers. “With this format, you make your own tasting itinerary, get answers for your questions, and learn about one of the oldest surviving Celtic traditions.”

It is important to the organizers of the Kindred Spirits Tasting and of CelticFest Mississippi that participants drink responsibly. “We always encourage folks to bring a designated driver,” says Launius.
