Whiskey Academy

March 3, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

June 3 – Whiskey Academy 2023

Class is back in session, and we’re starting with a pop quiz! In 2023, the Whiskey Academy at the Kansas City Irish Center takes a broader look at whisk(e)ys.

Our guest presenter, Tom Oothoudt, the founder of Whiskey Tom Foolery, will lead us through a blind tasting of six whisk(e)ys. With some clues, we will concentrate on the nose and palate to differentiate and identify the country of origin of each sample.

Whether it’s your first foray into whiskey or you’re a seasoned pro, test your knowledge and explore new tastes and flavors!

Doors open at 6:00.
Class begins at 7:00

Our wee pub will be open.

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.


Enjoy the class in-person or online.Tickets are $55 for tastings, $20 for observers.
