The Third Annual WeHa Whiskey Festival returns to the West Hartford Town Hall Auditorium on Saturday Oct. 17, 2015, from 6-9pm. The Festival is supported for the third consecutive year by presenting sponsor Pernod Ricard – whose portfolio includes Jameson Irish Whiskey, The Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Aberlour Single Malt Scotch Whisky, and Chivas Regal.

The event benefits two Hartford based charities: Hartford’s Camp Courant and the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Advanced tickets are on sale now online at www.wehawhiskey.com, or by visiting Maximum Beverage West Hartford (333 North Main St. – Bishops Corner) and Maximum Beverage Farmington (258 Main St. – Route 10).
