How much do you really know about everyone's favorite spirit? Mark Twain famously said "Too much of anything is bad, but too much of a good whiskey is barely enough." Humphrey Bogart's last words were "I should have never switched from scotch to martinis." George Bernard Shaw called whiskey "liquid sunshine." Everyone agrees that "Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation" (Haruki Murakami) - and almost every continent has its own unique brand. But did you know the word Whiskey is an anglicized mispronunciation of a Gaelic word meaning "Water of Life"? Originally known as "Uisce Beatha" (sometimes spelled Ischabaha), this legendary Malted barley has captured the hearts and the palates of all libation connoisseurs - who will all be gathered in one place March 26th & 27th! Taste, talk, listen and learn at the Whiskey Obsession Festival, where spirits will be high all weekend long!

The Business


Whiskey Obsession is one of the largest whisk(e)y shows in Florida, celebrating fine single malt, blended Scotch and American whiskies, Bourbon and rye, as well as whiskies from Ireland, Australia, France, England, and around the world. This elegant tasting event allows guests to sample over 200 premium spirits and interact with distillers, international brand ambassadors, importers, and industry professionals. Gourmet appetizers and a lavish buffet complement the selections. Guests are reminded that this event is for appreciation, not intoxication.  Obviously impaired guests will not be allowed to remain at the event.  All guests who consume alcohol are encouraged to have a designated driver; Whiskey Obsession does not tolerate drinking and driving.  Take your friends and take a cab.
