Special KY Bourbon School: Bourbon 101 & Basic Palate Training Thursday, Dec. 26, 2019 • 6:00pm – 7:30pm

In this special holiday KY Bourbon School, we’re combining our two most popular classes into one! As a foundation, we’ll start with an overview of what, exactly, Bourbon is plus take a brief look at Bourbon’s history and how it’s made today. We’ll also cover how to nose and taste Bourbon like a professional.

Then, we will introduce some basic palate training concepts which we’ll use to taste through a variety of Bourbons and near-Bourbons to explore the differences among Bourbon styles. We’ll finish with a blind pour to see how well you’ve developed your Bourbon palate.

This is a one-time class to lead into our year-long “KY Bourbon School” led by Bourbon-Steward-in-Residence Tim Knittel and Executive Bourbon Steward Aften Locken of Distilled Living with a new theme offered each month.

They will be the 2nd Wednesday at 6:00 pm and 4th Sunday at 3:00 pm all year during 2021.

$35 per person, class includes guided bourbon flight and light food.

Dinner reservations at Castle Farm Restaurant available for after the class by calling (859) 256-0322 or visiting https://www.thekentuckycastle.com/eat-drink
