Event Details

Join us for an in-depth bourbon blending workshop lead by our very own Master Distiller, Jeff Fairbrother and Assistant Distiller, Will Markert. Coinciding with the release of our Experimental Series No. 4 Triple Wood Finished Bourbon, learn about the aging process, selection of barrels that have reached the optimal flavor, and what the addition of different wood staves (cherry, white ash, & yellow birch) has done to create the unique flavor profile of our Experimental No. 4 Bourbon.

Discover the art and science of bourbon blending with Black Button! You will learn about distilling, barrel aging and how to blend bourbons from different barrels to achieve the perfect pour. Every barrel of aging bourbon has a slightly different flavor profile – from sweet, to oaky to spicy. Work directly with Jeff and Will to identify these characteristics through taste and smell and by the end of this class, you will take home a 375mL bottle of bourbon that you personally blended!

When: Friday, February 16th

Time: 6:00pm

Where: Rochester Tasting Room – 1344 University Avenue‚ Rochester, NY
