Whisky Brothers: Introduction to Japanese Whisky (SOLD OUT)

SOLD OUT

Our fastest-selling WB event ever is back by popular demand!

In 2014, for the first time ever, a Japanese whisky was named the best in the world by Whisky Bible critic Jim Murray. Demand shot through the roof, and hasn't slackened since. Our friends the Whisky Brothers (Dan Searing and Kelly Young) are back to walk us through the intricacies of a spirit originally modeled after Scotch whisky, but which has since taken on a profile (and legend) all its own.

Ticket price includes all drinks, plus tip for the Whisky Brothers.
Must be 21+ to attend.

Whisky Brothers: The Heart of Irish Whiskey

Get Your Tickets @ EventBrite

Join the Whisky Brothers as we go deep into the pure heart of traditional, single pot still Irish distilling. We'll turn the Reading Room into our own Shebeen for the night.

"Neither a blend nor a single malt, the result was a spirit with the same cereal depth of its otherwise identical single malt sister but with a spicy bristle from the raw unmalted barley and a noticeably thicker and more lathery texture. Having originally become popular in Ireland as a means of dodging the malt tax of 1785, this peculiar and technically inefficient mashbill had subsequently become the hallmark of Irish distilling as a trade. Long after the tax was repealed, the recipe remained. The ratio of malted to unmalted barley varied from distillery to distillery and that textural diversity was an intimate part of the lifeblood of Irish whiskey itself."
-Fionnán O’Connor
