Shannon from The Luella M. Harden Foundation joined the Housecast to talk about a great event and a record breaking drink!

A group of cocktail enthusiasts in Detroit are gunning to set a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest whiskey highball at the upcoming Whisky Experience on April 20, according to a release. The Luella M. Harden Foundation, which helps organize the Whisky Experience each year, has commissioned a 93-gallon custom Tom Collins glass from Plastics Unlimited in Jackson, Michigan, for the highball. The container will be outfitted spigots to dispense the cocktail that will feature Jim Beam Black and Faygo pop.

The first 1,000 people at Eastern Market Shed 5 during the Whisky Experience will have a chance to try the gargantuan concoction. The record attempt paperwork has been formerly filed to the Guinness Book of World Records, though a representative for the event tells Eater that a judge will not be present during the event.

The annual whiskey event is a benefit for the Luella M. Harden Foundation and Proceeds will go to benefit the Leukemia Society of America as well as scholarships for local students. In addition to giant cocktails, the Whisky Experience is expected to feature appetizers and lots of bourbon and whiskey tastings. Tickets are available online or at Butter Run Saloon in St. Clair Shores.
