Top your Foo Foo Festival visit off with some of Florida’s most tasty resources – oysters and scotch.

The prettiest pearls wouldn’t exist without a little grit. And the Gulf Coast, known for its opulent, sugar-white beaches and Old-South charm, was built on the backs of fishermen, sailors and seafarers.

Our blood might not be blue, but neither is our water. It’s green as the finest emeralds. We’re graceful, but we’re gritty. We’re rough, but we’re refined, and no one strikes this balance with as much poise as we do. Peat & Pearls celebrates this spirit through two of our favorite things: scotch and oysters.

The half-day event will be held on the grounds of the historic Barkley House, giving visitors panoramic views of Pensacola Bay and easy access to the Great GulfCoast Arts Festival, located just next door.
Guests will enjoy fine scotches from William Grant & Sons, cocktails by Old Hickory Whiskey Bar, VIP tours of Pensacola Bay Oyster Co., live music, chefs’ demos, a cigar garden, a pearl market and – of course – bushels and bushels of delicious oysters prepared by some of the South’s hottest chefs.

If you like whiskey with your pearls, you won’t want to miss this event.
