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. Peat & Pearls celebrates this heritage through two of our favorite things: Scotch and oysters. Join us this October for four days of tastings, seminars and special events.

Sunday’s Grand Tasting will be hosted at the Barkley House — a picturesque, 19th-century estate located on the waterfront in Downtown Pensacola.

Guests will mingle with more than two dozen oyster farmers & celebrity chefs from across the country as they enjoy a variety of naked, cooked & composed oyster dishes.

Festivities will include:

Oyster Showcase — Featuring more than a dozen varietals of rare, premium oysters, along with cooked and composed oyster dishes prepared by our guest celebrity chefs
Storytelling Salon — Featuring interviews with chefs, farmers & craftsmen
Cigar Garden — Featuring cigar giveaways & educational programming presented by Cigar Aficionado, My Father Cigars & Cordova Cigars
Wine & Scotch Tastings — Featuring whiskey programming by Glenfiddich & sparkling wines from the portfolio of Treasury Wine Estates
Cocktail Program — Presented by Old Hickory Whiskey Bar
