Whiskey and food. What could possibly top this combo?
On November 19th, everybody’s favorite whiskey festival came to Brooklyn. Hosted at the Brooklyn Expo Center, Whiskey Feast is a food and drink fair showcasing some of New York’s best whiskey and food pairings around. Guests were able to walk around the Expo Center and sample over 40 types of local whiskies and more than 20 unique and signature dishes found in New York City. Some of the distilleries who came to this event included Catoctin Creek Distilling Company, King of Blue Whiskey, Breuckelen Distilling, and Copper Fox Distillery. Some of the food vendors found included Bareburger, Salt & Bone, and Tipsy Scoop.
We went around to a lot of the vendor booths and sampled the amazing whiskies and food that they had to offer. One of our favorite foods to try was Salt & Bone’s corn and bean salad with a lime crema. It was light, sweet, tangy, and incredibly refreshing. Another favorite food of ours was the bourbon and whiskey infused ice cream provided by Tipsy Scoop. The ice cream was sweet and had a good infusion of whiskey and bourbon to the point where that distinct flavor was able to really come through. Honestly, what is a better combination than ice cream and alcohol? At the end of the event, the best cocktail and the best dish was announced. The winner of the best cocktail was the Autumn Breeze by Highland Park Whiskey. The winner of the best dish was the Heavenly Beef Sliders by Sweet Chili.
Overall, this event was a huge success. It was great to see so many whiskey loves come together and have a great time drinking and eating with each other. There was a lot of great whiskeys and food to display and we just couldn’t get enough of it. The next time Whiskey Feast comes to town, you better get your ticket to this incredibly fun food and drink showcase.
