  2. You’re missing Whiskey On Ice, the premier whiskey festival in the U.S. upper midwest. Whiskey On Ice is an annual celebration, held in early April in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year 900 attendees will have the opportunity to sample whiskeys from the 120 distilleries from around the world that will be represented at our Grand Tasting. In addition, Whiskey On Ice offers attendees the option to attend any of the four Whiskey Masterclasses being held prior to the Grand Tasting. All attendees may partake of an outdoor cigar and cocktail lounge, as well as a silent auction of whiskeys and whiskey-related items, the proceeds of which benefit a local area non-profit.
