WHAT IS A “BOURBON DINNER”?
Think of it as a Spirits Master Class, along with the most delicious of culinary distractions!
It is a very rare opportunity for Wine Lovers and Bourbon afficionados alike to survey a group of top-shelf products. We’ve enlisted Heather Protz, a Sazerac Brands Expert to guide you through the history and science of Bourbon – our most delicious and historic American spirit.
I’M NOT EVEN SURE IF I LIKE BOURBON! WILL I ENJOY MYSELF?
We love food and flavor, but believe wholeheartedly in the delights of Education too! Whether you enjoy learning about History or the science of Distilling, you will certainly enjoy being guided through the subject, through a series of small tastes and matching bites.
HOW IS A BOURBON DINNER DIFFERENT THAN A WINE DINNER?
A dinner like this, part education/part delight, will have Chef Special small plates paired with tastes of Bourbon from a variety of distillers, produced in a variety of styles. You will have the opportunity to approach this as a foodie – to see how spirits can be incorporated into your favorite dishes, or as a Bourbon lover, to enjoy seeing how your favorite flavors marry with food.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THESE BOURBONS?
We’ve chosen top shelf Bourbons that represent great value, and classic character. You will be able to survey the styles and compare flavor as you taste Bourbons composed of completely opposing “mashbills” – and you will be able to identify how the blend of grains produces specific characteristic flavor. Tasting each one of these examples by the bottle, or even at a bar would run many times over the cost of this event!
SEATING IS LIMITED. Cost: $49 (plus tax and tip). Due to the anticipated popularity of this event, we urge you to reserve your spot as soon as possible: (203) 756-1249.
