KOBBE has announced in place of the nonprofit’s annual holiday benefit event, Bourbon & Benevolence, they will be hosting Sip & Sole Holiday Edition – curated to capture the Next Generation of Spirits Drinkers.

With a focus on adding to the style, culture, and authenticity of the industry – Sip & Sole captures the next generation of spirits drinkers. The event expects another sold-out event with brand-centered experiences and sampling throughout. This is not a sneaker ball. We welcome sneakers, heels, and loafers. We want whatever Sole means to you. This also will not be a bourbon only event, with brand announcements soon. As with all our events food will be served, and also to be named later.

Again this year we’ll feature a single barrel being released at the event. This year we’ve partnered with Pernod Ricard to release a Smooth Ambler Bourbon selected by KOBBE.

“We’re so excited to bring back Sip & Sole while expanding it for this holiday season,” said Jamar Mack, KOBBE Founder. “Guests who have attended Bourbon & Benevolence in the past will not only have a great time at this event but experience spirits and brand experiences in an entirely new and fresh way.”

This year, there will be no live or silent auction held during the event, instead will be held online and concluded before the event begins. Silent Auction proceeds benefit the E.B.A. Scholarship for service that provides financial relief to individuals of color toward education in the spirits industry. The event will also be collecting new and gently used shoes + socks that will be donated to local shelters and corresponding programs.
