Silver package ticket holders will also receive a swag bag with lots of Grand Lake promo items, coupons and gift certificates.
All VIP ticket holders will enjoy the option to purchase cocktail and whiskey tastings featuring nue vodka, Calamity Gin and Henderson Whiskey, as well as a special “pre-release” whiskey before it’s even available in stores.
Drink specials by nue vodka and offered by The Lighthouse will also be available, as well as drinks from the Lighthouse Restaurant’s full-service bar.
Nue vodka is an award-winning Texas vodka that’s distilled seven times for a clean, premium taste.
