Premier touring whisky festival WhiskyX makes its way to Miami for the first time ever on Friday, March 11 at Mana Wynwood Convention Center. A haven for whisky fans of all levels, WhiskyX brings together the best experiences of classic distilleries but on a festival-sized scale. Guests can expect to discover and sample more than 60 premium, local and independent whiskies and whisky cocktails.
The best of Bourbon, American, Irish, Scotch, Rye, Single Malt and more are all on the menu at WhiskyX’s inaugural Miami event. Guests can pair their premium drams, in complimentary WhiskyX glasses and handcrafted whisky-based cocktails with the best food trucks in the city, along with a cigar lounge and complimentary hair-and-beard trims by The Spot Barbershop. Alt-country singer/songwriter sensation Zach Bryan will set the vibe as the evening’s headlining live performer.
Mixing classic folk melody and outlaw country, Bryan’s musical style is marked by his raspy voice and a raw edge that cuts to the bone. His breakthrough moment arrived with the video for his track “Heading South.” Shot on a phone outside of his Navy barracks in humid 95-degree heat, Zach’s passion echoes off the strings of his trusted Guild guitar. Drenched in sweat and belting words that he had written just minutes earlier, Bryan’s delivery is authentic, brutal and real.
Since 2017, WhiskyX has been attracting record crowds of whisky-lovers across the country, including in Austin, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and Brooklyn.
