Festival Update

Whiskey and Barrel Nite presents the Eighth Annual Whiskey Obsession Festival, April 2021 in Tampa, Florida.  Date will be finalized by end of October.

An evening of tastings, custom whisky-infused dinner buffet, VIP pours and a fabulous grand tasting with hundreds of whiskies and cocktails...

After careful and continuous monitoring of the situation with Covid, both locally in Florida and nationally, as well as an enormous amount of consumer feedback from recent surveys and outreach, we have come to the very hard decision to postpone our Tampa event to Spring 2021, our regular timeframe in April. 

Several factors went into the final decision to include:

  • First and foremost – the health and well being of our consumer attendees, exhibitors and industry colleagues.
  • Corporate mandate by a significant majority of our exhibitors and brands restricted on attending large events &/or gatherings.
  • Feedback from much of the industry to postpone, given the uncertainty of the current Covid situation and recent cases going up significantly, not down. 

All the points above make hosting a quality and worthwhile event for everyone a virtual impossibility. 

This was not an easy decision for us.  We not only need to consider the health and safety aspect which, of course, is paramount, but also after 17 years of hosting tasting events – our attendees deserve a quality event with new and premium selections to sample and taste AND also to meet the producers and brand ambassadors - something that is not possible in the current situation.

For those who already purchased a ticket we will be coordinating several promotions starting shortly and continuing through the event in April.  These will include drawings for gift bottles every couple weeks till April.  Please watch for a survey coming soon for the drawings.

And if we can - a holiday “whiskey get together” in Dec / early Jan.

All tickets rollover to 2021 and are transferable to someone else if you are not able to attend.  We apologize there are no refunds.

We are looking forward having you join us in April 2021.
