The Southern Food & Beverage Foundation (SoFAB) will be hosting a "Parade Route Party" in their Gumbo Garden on Saturday, February 19, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Guests will enjoy Redemption Rye Whiskey tastings, champagne and wine by Patron Saint, food from Luncheon, and king cake from Bayou Saint Cake. Plus, they'll enter a raffle where they can win a Bayou Saint Cake king cake made by Chef Bronwen Wyatt.
The "Parade Route Party" is part of an event series called The Year of American Whiskey, which celebrates the history and culture behind the famous drink with tastings, education, and community. The New Orleans Bourbon Festival and Museum of the American Cocktail (MOTAC) are working with SoFAB to make it successful.
"[We] wanted to provide year-round programming and partnering with SoFAB allows us to bring great whiskey events to our community, beyond our annual March festival," New Orleans Bourbon Festival founder Tracey Napolitano said.
Whiskey fans have plenty to look forward to each month. Distilleries such as Old Forester, Jack Daniel's, and Wild Turkey will also be visiting the Gumbo Gardens. After February, Maker's Mark will be visiting on Wednesday, March 23.
"I'm excited to learn more about the spirit during 2022 and allow our visitors the ability to taste, experience, and learn about some of the best spirits and producers in the United States," President and CEO of SoFAB Brent Rosen said.
Tickets for the "Parade Route Party" will cost $20. Guests will also have access to the museum and enter the raffle.
