Sorry, this course is full.

Just in time for Christmas - Are you interested in creating gourmet, barrel-aged whiskeys and cocktails? In this two-part class you’ll receive 5 time-tested recipes, learn how the process works and create your own mixture to age in an oak barrel. At the first class the basics of whiskey, the science of barrel aging and you will have an opportunity to taste different recipies. At the end of the course you will blend spirits and fill your barrel. Each week at home, you will taste a small sample from your barrel and replace the “Angel’s share” (liquid evaporates from the barrel either water or alcohol depending on temperature and humidity) with some of your original mixture or with the addition of select components of the original recipe.

After 3 weeks a second class will be held to evaluate participant recipes (small tastes 1/2 oz. or less) by the group. At the end of the evening your creation will be strained and bottled. You will be able to take home oak barrels and five, 375 ml bottles of your finished product which make ideal gifts. Couples welcome to create together with one barrel.

Class meet Nov. 28 and Dec. 19. Participants must be over 21 (Id will be checked).
