Raise a glass, or several, at one or all three of Reserve 101’s special whiskey (and Scottish whisky) tasting events happening from Saturday, July 4 to Monday, July 13, 2015.

Our friend Mike Raymond, co-owner of Reserve 101 in Downtown and widely respected in the spirits industry as the most knowledgable whiskey purveyor in the state of Texas, has stacked early July with a series of can’t miss whiskey tastings. He’s calling it “Christmas in July,” and that sounds good to us.

Bring yourself, or your favorite whiskey drinker, to one or all of these special events at the corner of Caroline and Dallas in Downtown.
