The Balvenie Rare Craft Collection, a first-of-its-kind exhibition featuring original works from some of America’s finest craftspeople, is coming to Dallas September 10 and 11 as part of a six-city tour.
Texas native Jonathan Wingo, The Balvenie Brand Ambassador, will host the event. Wingo was recognized in 2012 by Forbes Magazine's “30 Under 30” in the Food and Wine category for his boutique liquor store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn called The Whiskey Shop and his dedication to curating a collection of craft and obscure whiskies distilled from all over the world.
From bowler hats and bicycles to electric guitars and Ping-Pong tables, this collection represents rare crafts from every corner of America including Dallas; proudly represented by furniture designer Danny Kamerath whose wooden chairs (pictured) reflect a craftsman’s skill and artist’s vision of beauty.
Viewing the Balvenie Rare Craft Collection and sampling the whiskies are from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10 and Wednesday 11, 6pm – 10pm, at The Hickory Street Annex, 501 South 2nd Avenue, #200, Dallas, TX 75226.
The exhibit is free to the public and includes complimentary tastings of the handcrafted single-malt whisky, The Balvenie and hors d’oeuvre.
Scotch Whisky master classes, hosted by The Balvenie Ambassador Jonathan Wingo, are also available both days at 6:30pm and 8pm. Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. RSVP required at www.thebalvenie.com/collection.
