Whiskey Academy, Class 1

April 8, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

April 8 – Whiskey Academy Session #1 – Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey…

Scotch…Bourbon…Irish Whiskey…what are the differences? What makes a whiskey Irish Whiskey?

You’ll have the opportunity to see, taste and smell the differences as we sample Scotch, Bourbon and Irish Whiskey (can you guess which is our favorite?) as our resident whiskey expert George Vial leads us through the Foundations of Whiskey in Class #1 of the KCIC 2022 Whiskey Academy. Discussion will include the history of whiskey and distillation, production methods and styles; George will also touch on Canadian, Japanese, Welsh and English whiskeys.

Class participants will sample 1 Single Malt Scotch, 1 Kentucky Bourbon, and 6 Irish Whiskeys. Snacks will be provided and our wee pub will be open for beer purchases.

We also recognize that you may have friends and family that would like to attend but aren’t interested in sampling the class’s whiskey offerings, so we’ve added a ticket option that includes snacks and one drink from the bar.

Doors at 6:30pm. Class starts at 7pm.

Join us as we kick-off the 2022 KCIC Whiskey Academy!


Enjoy the class in-person or online.Tickets are $55 for tastings, $15 for observers.
