The biannual Montgomery County whiskey sale will be held in Clarksburg.

The “Whiskey Rocks” liquor sale is making an early return in 2020. The first of two annual Montgomery County whiskey sales will take place on January 17, 2020, at Clarksburg Village Liquor & Wine Store in Clarksburg, Maryland. The event will include the sale of rare and hard-to-find whiskeys, tastings, bottle engravings, guest speakers, and more. The sale will also coincide with a special tasting lunch hosted by Maker's Mark Master Distiller Denny Potter. 

Each year the Montgomery County Department of Liquor Control holds two whiskey events to help support public services in the county including police, fire, and transportation projects. The sales are a great opportunity for both whiskey lovers and novices to sample and learn about whiskey from all over the world. Get your chance to buy those hard-to-find vintages by entering the daily drawings.
