The Great American Whiskey Fair is the largest celebration of American whiskey in the Southeast, with over 100 different distilleries and bottlers presenting over 500 whiskeys, bourbons and ryes! Now in it's fifth year, it is BIGGER and BETTER than ever, as we have added another exhibition space to present whiskeys from other countries as well. So in addition to Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, South Carolina, Utah and every other state of the Union, whiskeys from Scotland, Ireland, Canada and Japan will also be presented. 

The Great American Whiskey Fair is your opportunity to taste whiskeys while chatting with distillery owners, master distillers, blending masters and brand ambassadors from around the world. In addition, the creators and hosts of this spectacular event, Bourbon, Columbia's premiere whiskey and cocktail bar, along with LowCo BBQ, will present a delicious BBQ feast throughout the event to keep your bellies full and happy. 

Whether you're new to whiskey or a lifelong fan of the "brown water", you should not miss this event.

About Executive Chef Josh Rogerson: Josh was brought up in Italy and embraces that country’s rich culinary heritage. As a child he spent hours at his mother’s kitchen table studying old cookbooks. He lived in Bologna, the heart of Italian cuisine and later attended school in Germany where he continued learning and experiencing the food and culture of Europe. He enrolled at the University of South Carolina for two years studying linguistics and business before eventually deciding to commit to cooking full time. Josh started at Saluda’s in January 2014. His menu is influenced by both his Italian heritage and the European cuisine he grew up with while also integrating classic techniques and ingredients native to his new home here in the South. “I want my food to be as close as possible to the best meals I ate growing up, and hopefully give someone eating it that spark and that excitement to remember it years down the road.”

Summer Dinner Concert Series Season Pass

Join us for our Dinner Music Series. June, July and August our dinners will be at the Music Farm downtown. We figured it would be a little warm so we decided to partner up with the Music Farm again and have a series of our Dinner and Show.

Executive Chef Frank Bradley from Bourbon and our House Chef Drew Thompson will prepare a family style four-course farm to table dinner. Advintage will be featuring wine pairings and Bourbon on Main Street will prepare a complimentary cocktail. Gratuity not included.
