Spirits Classes

We find guests enjoy their spirits more if they know a little about them. We’ve also found that group tastings are a wonderful way to bond with friends, entertain clients or have a fun corporate team-building night.


Our Spirits classes offer courses for all levels. We have tasting classes for connoisseurs, and others for beginners who are simply curious to learn more. Led by our team of in-house spirits experts. You will walk away with both a pronounced appreciation for Whiskey, Tequila, Mezcal, Rum, Brandy, and Wine and a light skip in your step after one of these fun and dynamic courses.

Tickets Classes

Purchase tickets to one of the many spirits classes we offer. Come alone or come with a group of friends. It’s a fun night regardless. You’ll sample spirits, enjoy some light appetizers.

VERY OLD SCOTCH

Vintage liquors (also known as ‘dusties’) are increasingly being appreciated for their distinct flavor profiles.

In this class, you will learn more about these old spirits and what makes them so special.
