Renowned ‘Whisky Jewbilee’ to make Suburban Debut at Grand Prix New York



Popular Manhattan Whisky-Tasting Event for Jewish Whisky Aficionados will Raise
Money for Support Connection at Oct. 9 Event in Mount Kisco





After years of success across the nation, a popular whisky tasting event is coming to Westchester.
Organized by Jewish Whisky Company, the Whisky Jewbilee will feature more than 45 major whisky
brands representing more than 200 different whiskies. The event will be held on October 9 at Grand
Prix New York, one Westchester’s premiere venues for fun and fundraisers.
For the suburban whisky fan, this is the event of the year – but there’s a twist. Whisky Jewbilee is
designed specifically for Jewish whisky enthusiasts. Glatt Kosher cuisine will be provided by Ari
White, Executive Chef, Gemstone Caterers, Pitboss, Wandering Que.
Whisky Jewbilee is an alternative to WhiskyFest, a nationwide festival that regularly draws thousands
of whisky enthusiasts to different American cities. When a festival was moved to a Friday and
Saturday event, The Jewish Whisky Company decided to hold their own gathering on a date that
didn’t conflict with the Jewish Sabbath. The result was a huge – and kosher – success.

“While open to all lovers of whisky, the Whisky Jewbilee, in part because it is a Glatt Kosher cateredevent, is the perfect opportunity for Jewish aficionados of whisky to gather and meet like-minded Jewswho share the same passion and tastes. The event has been wildly successful in New York City andwe’re sure that it will be a huge hit in Westchester as well,” said Joshua ‘Yossi’ Hatton, President and Co-Founder of the Jewish Whisky Company.There will be games and racing at Grand Prix NY from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
