It’s pretty simple, every month Astoria whiskey enthusiasts get together to enjoy some fine spirits, good conversation and neighborhood pride in a casual and laid-back environment.
Born out of a passion for finely crafted whiskey and a lack of local establishments that offer tastings, Astoria resident and founder, Emily Ross-Johnson, decided the best way to taste rare and hard to find whiskey was to form a whiskey collective and bring the good stuff to Astoria. So, each month we choose a brand to present to us, taste some whiskey, and then discuss. It’s a great opportunity to explore and learn more about whiskey with a friendly and unstuffy crowd.

If you’re a distiller/vendor and would be interested in having your product featured at a tasting, or a restaurant/bar owner and would like to host an event, click the “Sponsor An Event” button on the sidebar and let us know how you’d like to get involved.
We hope you’ll join us in growing this exciting community of whiskey lovers, right here in Astoria!
