Baltimore Whiskey Festival

Baltimore Whiskey Festival

A little snow, a little rain, and freezing gusts of wind didn’t keep the crowds away from this annual Eat.Drink.Relax tasting event put on by the Trigger Agency.

They filled The Assembly Room to enjoy good food, good company…

…and sample more than 60 whiskeys from around the world.
