The Whiskey Tour is all about unlocking the secrets of some delicious behind the scenes BBQ, while tasting award winning whiskey from the Breckenridge Distillery. This is a sell out each year because of stellar goodie bags (there’s a bottle of whiskey and commemorative glass in there) and lots of behind the scenes BBQ nibbles and tips.

The 2019 Whiskey Tour will be on June 15, 2019 from 6:00pm until approximately 8:00pm. Tickets will go on sale May 1, 2019.
