Arrow Pappy Van Winkle Flight & Dinner w/ Whiskey Expert Tom Fischer

Whiskey Obsession Festival Presents the Pappy Van Winkle Flight and Dinner
with Whiskey Expert Tom Fischer

The Whiskey Obsession Festival in conjunction with Spirit Guide, Inc. is thrilled to announce the Pappy Van Winkle Flight and Dinner with Tom Fischer of the Bourbon Blog, Friday, November 2, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Francis in downtown Sarasota, Florida. This is the first time on the Gulf Coast of Florida that the entire range of these rare and expensive American Bourbon whiskies will be available to sample. For the whiskey fan, it’s a once in a lifetime event.

The Van Winkle line is composed of five fine Bourbon whiskies - Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year, Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year, Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year, Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year - and the Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 Year Rye. Cost is $295 per person and includes four course dinner. Tickets are limited to 35 guests.

Our speaker is whiskey expert Tom Fischer, founder of, the country’s premier resource for American Whiskey and Bourbon commentary. He is the creator of the world’s first ever Whiskey Sommelier Program with students from around the globe. Tom was one of the first to report on the intense interest in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon that began over a decade ago and he continues to follow this premier brand. Tom is also a Kentucky Colonel, an honor bestowed on him by the governor of the state.

The Seventh Annual Whiskey Obsession Festival (WOF) will be held April 10 to 13, 2019 in Sarasota, Florida. Whiskey Obsession is the largest world whiskey festival in the U.S., with four days of classes, tastings, lunch and dinner pairings, expanded bartender academy, interactive panel discussions, cigars, VIP pours, a fabulous grand tasting with hundreds of whiskies and cocktails to sample, plus free live music street party in the heart of downtown. A portion of festival proceeds is awarded to a qualified 501c3 annually.

Tickets and information are available at
