How serious are most whiskey lovers? According to Forbes.com July 2013, 'The World's Best Whisky keeps getting better'...."The Macallan is the most sought after single malt at auction, and commands the highest prices including the world record for Scotch whisky sold at auction (64-Year Old for $460,000 at Sotheby's New York in 2010), provenance is important, and to that end a Vintage Bottle Register at Easter Elchies House, the brand's spiritual home in Scotland, records the names of those who have bought Fine & Rare bottles with serial numbers."
With ticket prices at $125 for VIP and $65 for General Admission, the Houston Whiskey Festival is all in for a good cause. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Santana Dotson Foundation, which provides financial and emotional support for high school students in need.
