Get excited, bacon and bourbon lovers of NYC – for the sixth year, the Bacon & Bourbon Expo will be returning to the Astor Center, giving guests the opportunity to sip through bourbon, whiskey, and more, all while snacking on delicious piggy treats.

This year’s expo is divided into two sessions, and general admission tickets will get you: samples of over 20 American whiskies, tastes of three whiskey cocktails, samples of food to pair with your bourbon (including bacon, obviously), a commemorative whiskey tasting glass, and a discount on all American whiskey available that day at Astor Wines & Spirits, while supplies last.

Featured bourbon producers include: Kings County Distillery, Evan Williams, Van Brunt Stillhouse, Peach Street, OYO, New Holland, Larceny Bourbon, Elijah Craig, Bernheim, Smooth Ambler, and more.  On the bacon side, Tender Belly, Neuske’s, Broadbent Farms, and others will be in attendance to satisfy your porky needs, and Fatty Cue will be on deck serving up some of their delicious barbecue.

Additionally, each session comes with its own VIP ticket option, with session one being the NYC Whiskey Distiller Panel, and session two focusing on Mast Brothers Chocolate.

Tickets are going fast, so order yours ASAP – it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and post V-Day date – and if you’ve got no one to celebrate with…lucky for you, bacon and bourbon are the perfect companions.
