Taryn's Wreckreation Guide

March 7, 2018

Countless distilleries, restaurants and other fine establishments will be hanging with KISW on Saturday for a SOLD OUT Bourbon & Bacon Fest 2018. To tease your taste buds a tad, check out these 10 incredible offerings you'll enjoy this weekend:


The Liquor

- Heritage Distilling Company will be bringing TWO of my favorites. Sample their BSB (Brown Sugar Bourbon) and their Bacon Vodka (it's the BEST for a Bloody Mary!). 

⚾️Introducing our 2018 Special Edition BSB baseball labeled bottles now available online and in HDC stores! We are a proud sponsor of your @Mariners.

- High West Distillery offers FOUR sips this weekend. Sound off! The High West Rendezvous Rye, High West Campfire, High West American Prairie Bourbon, and High West Double Rye.

Not that the holidays are ever about “winning” best present – but you could definitely take the cake with gifting any of the above pictured High West whiskeys. Keep an eye out this week, as we make holiday shopping easier by pointing you in the right direction with our guide to High West gifts (available on our online store - link in profile, or in our General Store locations at each distillery). Cheers & Happy Gifting!---- #drinkhighwest

- Noble Oak Bourbon is pouring their Noble Oak Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey. But they're more than booze! For every bottle sold, they plant a tree. Way cool!

Why trees? Whiskey. Trees are the source of barrels and 70% of a bourbon’s flavor comes from the wood. We all have different reasons to thank trees, why are you most thankful about?

The Bites

- Hemplers is well known for their bacon, but at Bourbon & Bacon Fest, get down on their Pepperoni Sticks!


The Extras

- Washington Pork Producers will be doing a cutting demonstration for anyone who wants to witness such skills! 

- San Juan Cigar will mesmerize you with their hand-rolled, fine cigars. Watch these artists in action! 

- SPIN Seattle is setting up a ping pong table for some friendly sport, but no word back if bourbon, wine or beer pong will be permitted...


Bourbon & Bacon Fest is indeed SOLD OUT, so make sure you jump on Sip and Slide NOW before it's full. This is KISW's latest and greatest event happening April 7th with sliders, beer and cider all in one place! 


Happy Adventuring,
