The Old Guard – Whiskey Academy

Jun 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

June 11 – Whiskey Academy Session #2 – The Old Guard

It’s time for class #2 of the KCIC 2021 Whiskey Academy! Join us as we continue to explore the “water of life” far beyond your everyday Jameson. Expand your knowledge and expertise as you gain the confidence you need to choose the perfect bottle. (participation in previous classes not required)

The Old Guard: The Classic Distilleries and Producers of Ireland – focusing on history, geography and innovation. This includes classics such as Bushmills, Jameson, Powers, Paddys, Tullamore Dew, and Cooley-Kilbeggan (subject to change).

At this time we are offering students the flexibility of livestreaming classes in the comfort of their own home or attending class, socially-distanced of course, in beautiful Drexel Hall on the KCIC campus. All registered students will receive 8 whiskey samples + snacks.

Whiskey expert George Vial will regale students with the background and nuances of eight distinct whiskeys as they learn the history and different methods of distilling.

At the conclusion of each class, students will have the opportunity to order bottles of their favorites at a special participant-only discount, thanks to our friends at Browne’s Irish Market.

Doors open at 6:00 pm Our wee pub will be open to buy a beer or two before class starts at 7:00 pm You don’t want to be tardy.


Enjoy the class in-person or online.
Tickets are $48.
