It's called the WeHa Whiskey Festival, but there's much more to enjoy besides whiskey. We've evolved over the years to a full spirits and even wine tasting event! If you want a palate cleanser, give our favorite non-whiskey items a try!
1. Robert Mondavi Private Selection Barrel Aged Wines
Wine at a whiskey festival? Yup. Three years ago we had a single wine at our festival and it ended up being the top seller! Barrel aged wines are catching on of late for it's unique boldness and intensity. Included at this year's festival are three wines from the legendary Robert Mondavi winery: Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel Cabernet, Rum Barrel Merlot, and Rye Barrel Red Blend.

2. Aperol and Campari Cocktails
The Aperol Spritz took the country by storm this year. Popping up on every trendy cocktail bar menu from East Coast to West. It's light, delicately balanced, and incredibly "instagramable". The folks at Campari wanted to change things up this year and serve creative cocktails at their table. We can't wait to give them a try!

3. Bully Boy Hub Punch
Bully Boy Distillers out of Boston is gaining some serious steam with their craft spirits and pre-batched cocktails based on pre-prohbition era recipes. Enter The Hub Punch. The recipe uses Bully Boy's classic Boston Rum as a base and infuses orange, raspberry, lemon, and a select combination of botanicals. Pour it over ice and it is ready to drink.

4. The Real McCoy 14 Year Limited Edition Rum
96 Points, Wine Enthusiast. This limited edition opens with the guns a-blazing: it's spicy and brisk, loaded with cinnamon and clove. The drying midpalate shifts to oak and walnut, then fades away on gentle, dreamy layers of brown sugar, caramel, orange peel and a hint of dried apricot. We know there are some Rum fanatics out there. Make this your first stop!

5. On the Rocks Premium Cocktails
For those who do not believe in love at first sight, give these a try. Super delicious, not too sweet, and hard to tell it’s premixed. Natural ingredients sweetened with cane sugar. You’ll get a 3 cocktails in a bottle that you simply pour over ice! If you're having company and don't want to stress out about a stocked cocktail bar, buy a few bottles of these and everyone will be happy! Give all the varieties a try at this year's festival. Of course, we recommend the Old Fashioned!

6. Lunazul "Smoked" Blanco Tequila
Smoke. It's not just for Mezcal. For the home mixologists out there, you'll want to pay attention to this Tequila. Aromas of smoked jalapenos, green peach and roasted agave create a complex nose. On the palate the flavors are more smoky and balance each other well. More stone fruit notes come through in the finish. If you love peaty and smoky Single Malts, be sure to stop by and try this one.

7. Smuggler's Notch Hopped Gin
Gin. Is. In! This hand-crafted 90-proof gin is made in extremely small batches during which the alcohol vapors pass through locally sourced Vermont Cascade hops and organic juniper berries suspended in the column of our still. This quintessentially unique yet classic gin begins with a sensational rich citrusy hop nose. Gentle overtones of fresh juniper and light citrus flavors intermingle in a satiny dry-yet-flavorsome medium-full body with a long, elegant and smooth finish.
