Holiday North American Whiskey Showcase Event Recap

Holiday North American Whiskey Showcase

The holidays are right around the corner and Diageo invited us to explore their North American whiskey portfolio. Needless to say we weren’t disappointed.

Upon entering we were greeted with warm welcomes to the Diageo corporate offices. A very modern workspace with a bar tasting, celebrating and more.
