The dinner will be held downtown at HUB, 266 E. Congress St., at 7 p.m. on Sunday, August 20. Whiskey will be creatively infused in each paired dish and cocktail, making it a unique opportunity to taste through Del Bac’s award-winning selection: Old Pueblo, Classic, Dorado, and the limited releases Frontera and Normandie.

Normandie was actually just named one of the “12 Best New Spirits of the Year” by Robb Report and was made from 100 percent malted barley and aged in charred virgin-oak barrels.

Tickets are $102 per person and you’ll need to be at least 21 years old to attend.
