SPIRITS CLASSES & WHISKEY TASTINGS

Spirits tastings for all levels of enthusiasts

Our Spirits classes offer courses for all levels. We have classes for connoisseurs, and others for beginners who are simply curious to learn more. Led by our team of in-house spirits experts. You will walk away with both a pronounced appreciation for the spirit and a light skip in your step after one of these fun and dynamic courses.

All classes are held upstairs in our private tasting room. The space has been designed specifically for these classes and all details have been considered. A long 16’ black walnut tasting table, wireless microphone, projection screen, sound-proof curtains and a separate PA system. Tastings start on time, so please arrive early to avoid any interruption.
