A Lesson in Tasting Whiskey
Once you have your whiskey and food, graciously put together by Kitty Hoynes and Dining Inside Out, you'll log on to Air Meet* and learn how to taste and pair them together. Throughout the evening, you'll have your chance to ask the distillers and experts about the notes in the beverages and how they are made.
The featured whiskeys are
FLX Distillers McKenzie Rye
Lock 1 Distilling Co Inferno 101 Cinnamon Whiskey
Old Home Distillers Bourbon
Redbreast 12 Year
Bushmills Single Malt 16 Year
*Please note Air Meet functions best on desktop and laptop.
Nothing pairs better with whiskey than a carefully curated box of food from your local favorites.
Try the cheese or charcuterie boxes from Kitty Hoynes, or go sweet with the dessert box from The Sweet Praxis or the chocolate box from Speach Family Candy.
Worried about the next day? Try the breakfast box from Pure Market & Eatery.
Love a good cocktail? Pick up the mixer box to take your drink to the next level.
Customize Your Experience
Nobody's tastebuds are the same, so why should your experience be? You can grab a box of 3 whiskey samples - all local - or you can select a box of 5 whiskey samples - 3 local and 2 from across the pond. If you don't care for whiskey, but still want a cocktail, the mixer box is the perfect complement for your favorite spirit.
All boxes come with expertly paired appetizers. You also have the option to buy only the food or watch along to chat and learn.
