Buffalo Whiskey Riot (formerly known as Buffalo Whiskey Fest), hosted by Tommyrotter Distillery and Step Out Buffalo, is *THE* festival of the year for whiskey lovers and the whiskey curious. On Saturday, September 29, we invite you to join us at the Adam’s Mark Hotel to taste your favorite whiskeys along with new brands while learning the ins and outs from master distillers and brand ambassadors.

This September attendees can choose between two festival sessions (afternoon session from 1 – 4 pm; evening session from 6 – 9 pm) to taste a huge variety of whiskey brands in a special take-home tasting glass, learn about the ins and outs of whiskey from master distillers and brand ambassadors, and sip whiskey cocktails served up at three exclusive pop-up bars hosted by Highland Park, Four Roses Bourbon and Tommyrotter Distillery. Plus, you’ll have exclusive access to Whiskey Riot seminars, hosted by whiskey masters from Heaven Hill Distillery and The Macallan, producers of some of the best-loved American and Scotch whiskies.
