Geared for the novice whiskey enthusiast!

Ever wondered what the difference is between bourbon and rye whiskeys? What properties characterize a scotch? Is there a difference between whisky and whiskey?

To answer these questions, we invite you to go back to whiskey basics with Sandy Wood, CEO of One Eight Distilling. We’ll kick off the experience with a closer look at the ‘Whiskey Tree’ and its genealogy. From there, you'll explore how flavor profiles are formed from the mash bill to the barrel aging process. Once equipped with the best practices for tasting, guests will put their skills to the test evaluating the ‘nose', ‘palate' and ‘finish' of 4 whiskeys.
