Whisk(e)y 101 Classes
Dec 21 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Whisk(e)y 101 Classes @ Water Street Wines & Spirits

Learn and TASTE the basics when it comes to whisk(e)ys, right in our store before the holidays.

On this Saturday afternoon, we’ll be trying and exploring the 5 basic styles of brown spirits with a short instruction on the differences between them and how/where they’re made.

We’ll be comparing/contrasting Bourbon (Maker’s Mark), Rye (High West Distillery Double Rye!), Irish Whiskey (Writers’ Tears), Un-Peated Blended Scotch (Monkey Shoulder), Peated Single Malt Scotch (Laphroaig Distillery Select), and a flavored whiskey for fun (Savage + Cooke An American Distillery Bad Sweater)!

This is an entirely free tasting/class offered by the store and only takes a half hour. Come with questions!

Classes will begin at:
12:00pm, 12:45pm, 1:30pm, 2:15pm
