What you'll learn in this whiskey class:

The word "whiskey" comes from old Gaelic and means the "water of life". No wonder why we need a refill now and then. "Taking the Bite Out of Whiskey" is an ideal class for all levels - experienced whiskey adventurers and those just starting their journeys.

The evening begins with a 2 hour class providing an overview of the wide world of whiskey. You will learn how to taste and talk about whiskey while comparing whiskey styles, ingredients, and origins. Appetizers and cheese will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing whiskey and food.

After class, we'll clear our palates and our heads with a delicious dinner from Blue Ribbon Barbecue paired with wine
