Virtual Bourbon Tastings & Cocktail Classes

Are your employees getting a little restless since the bars aren’t open?

Are you tired of not being able to get together with friends but can’t seem to get anyone to commit to yet another zoom call where everyone stares blankly at each other?

Or maybe you need a birthday gift that doubles as a virtual birthday party?

We’ve figured out a few ways to bring our classes and presentations online!

Whether you have a company of 900 or a gathering of 8 friends, we can bring an entertaining or educational element to your online party.

With small groups, we can keep everyone online and chatting. Over a certain size we’ll ask people to mute and use the chat feature of whatever platform we are working with.

We can do bourbon tastings OR follow-along cocktail classes for some favorites, classics or even our own recipes. We may make specific recommendations based on where you live due to some product availability by state.
