On September 22, Silver Street Studios here in Houston’s Washington Avenue Arts District will host Whiskies of the World, a whiskey tasting event which will showcase more than 200 different types of whiskeys from around the world. Master distillers will be on hand to offer whiskey “masterclasses” to discuss many of the whiskeys on hand and how they were made. In addition to the wide selection of the finest whiskeys the world has to offer, the event will feature cigar pairings and food pairings to highlight the complex flavors of the spirits on hand.
Nationally distributed brands like Bulleit, Crown Royal, Laphroaig, Jack Daniel’s, Knob Creek, Suntory, and Woodford Reserve will be on hand to offer tastings of their many different whiskeys, while lesser known Texas labels like Garrison Brothers from San Antonio, Denison’s Ironroot Republic, and Waco’s Balcones Distilling will be pouring samples as well.
From farther away, ambassadors dozens of global brands from Scotland, Ireland, Canada, India, Australia, and Japan will be pouring samples to let attendees get a taste of how the rest of the world takes on this classic American spirit.
The event benefits Helping a Hero, a nonprofit organization devoted to empowering severely wounded veterans returning from service in the War on Terror. Helping a Hero provides specially adapted homes designed for veterans with mobility issues caused by their wartime injuries. In addition to providing accessible housing, Helping a Hero provides additional resources for wounded veterans and their families including marriage and caregiver retreats, recreational activities, and emotional and financial support.
