Course description: All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. Spend the evening learning what defines bourbon and how the ingredients, distilling methods, and environments make them different from one another.

Amongst the bourbons we will be tasting, one was awarded World’s Best Single Barrel Bourbon and another a Gold Medal at the World Whiskey Awards.
