Be a VIP!

Sip of History VIP ticketholders will be the coolest kids in the crowd, thanks to some amazing partners who have come together to make this space legit. VIP ticketholders will get access to the area one hour before the festival starts, where they will get to meet and greet with some of Tennessee’s best distilleries and head distillers aboard a Premiere Transportation coach, including Andy Nelson with Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery, Alex Castle with Old Dominick,  Jeff Arnett with Company Distilling and Stanton Webster with PostModern Spirits. Each participating distillery will bring limited batch releases that no one else will be able to taste at this event. And ticketholders will also walk away with awesome Sip of History and Tennessee Whiskey Trail merchandise.

Sorry…all VIP tickets have been snagged!
