Not everyone gets into holidays. Maybe they’re not the celebratory sort, or it just takes more to make them feel merry. We’ve got a great inspiration for that festive spirit on October 29, at the 17th Annual WhiskyFest! It’s at the New York Marriott Marquis (1535 Broadway, on Times Square), and it promises to be a celebration worth getting excited about.

Whiskey Fest 1

300 Whiskies, One Night Only

More than 300 whiskies from all over the world await your discriminating judgement at this yearly tasting extravaganza. If you’ve always wanted to learn more about this popular and prestigious drink, this is the perfect opportunity to educate yourself about the different varieties of whisky on the market. There’s no better time to introduce yourself to this refined liquor.

Those already well acquainted with whisky can expand their knowledge at one of WhiskyFest’s many free seminars, conducted by whisky experts from all over. Meet master blenders, distillers, and other members of the whisky community. And did we mention the tasting?

One Cannot Live By Whisky Alone

WhiskyFest features a never-ending buffet of gourmet foods to provide a foundation for your tasting exploits. Not interested in wandering home after a night filled with food and drink? The Marriott is offering special rates on rooms for WhiskyFest attendees.

What do you get for attending WhiskyFest? All festival goers receive the latest issue of Whisky Advocate magazine, a gift bag, and a commemorative crystal nosing glass. Tickets will not be available at the door, so be sure you get your passes online. They’re going quickly, so grab one fast!

Seastreak’s ferry captains won’t be hitting the WhiskyFest, so you’ll have to do it for them. We’re dedicated to getting you home safely after you’ve enjoyed your whisky tasting, or however you’ve spent your time in the city! Spoil yourself with a ride on one of our luxurious catamarans.


Sea you soon!
