The Kentucky Castle’s Bourbon-Steward-In-Residence (& Bourbon industry insider) Tim Knittel will guide you through basic cocktail construction theory including:
• Spirit + Sweet + Contrast + Accent,
• Techniques: stirring vs. shaking and order of ingredients,
• Working with ice, and
• Selecting whiskey for cocktails by flavor profile
You’ll get to taste each type of cocktail and then make your own!
