The Pittsburgh distillery Wigle Whiskey will celebrate winning six medals at the 2015 American Craft Spirit Association Competition with a three-part Best in Show Party.
The event will take place on April 2nd and April 3rd, and includes an Organic Wigle Monongahela Rye Whiskey cocktail happy hour at Industry Public House, followed by a Wigle Organic Deep Cut Rye Whiskey tasting at Atlas Bottle Works. Both evenings will conclude with a screening of the comedy Best in Show at Row House Cinema.
The 2000 mockumentary from Christopher Guest follows seven dog owners competing for the grand prize at the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show. The cast of characters includes an unlikely married couple (Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara), two high-strung WASPs (Parker Posey and Michael Hitchcock), a ditzy trophy wife and her trainer (Jennifer Coolidge and Jane Lynch), middle-aged gay partners (Michael McKean and John Michael Higgins), and an outdoorsman/aspiring ventriloquist (Guest). It’s all dogs and drama as the competition progresses and the pressure mounts, bringing each subject closer to winning Best in Show.
The Best in Show Party will begin at 5 p.m. at Industry Public House, followed by Atlas Bottle Works at 7:15 p.m., and the movie screening at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 and are available for purchase at the Wigle Whiskey website.
