Still time to get tickets for tomorrow night's tasting in Houston at Reserve 101! Tickets are $20, and all proceeds benefit the Rescued Pets Movement! We'll be tasting Reserve 101's own bottlings of Old Weller Antique and Knob Creek Single Barrel, along with Redbreast Lustau, the Lagavulin 8-year-old 200th anniversary bottling, Johnnie Walker Gold, and Yamasaki 12.
Tickets are available at https://t.co/KPgNGICVQg, and if you're not in the Houston area and want to support the Rescued Pets Movement (which helps find homes for pets all over the USA), please consider buying a ticket...you won't knock a local out of a seat at the tasting. If you're in the area, I hope to see you there!
