This “Tasting Event” will feature several premium wines (red & white) and a selection of fine bourbon/whiskey for sampling amidst the contemporary art collection of one of Bentonville’s newest Galleries. Additionally, there will be a brief discussion of the wines and whiskies available for savoring, punctuated by hors d’oeuvres to cleanse the palate.

During the evening, gallery owners, Chris Sparks and Dallas Estes will be present to answer questions and discuss the variety of contemporary works available for sale, including those of local artist, Graham Edwards.

Additionally, Signature Bank of Arkansas is sponsoring a raffle of a single bottle of 2017 Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey, an uncut and hard to find, 127.2 Proof Whiskey available only in extremely Limited Edition. Raffle chances can be purchased for $10/each. The raffle drawing will be held the evening of the tasting but raffle ticket holders need not be present to win. (The HHAB Boosters will directly notify the winner if not in attendance.)
