“Craft” may have become an overloaded word in American whiskey, but it represents something exciting for whiskey drinkers: novelty. In the year 2000, there were only a few dozen distilleries making bourbon in the United States. Today, that number has exploded to over a thousand. Bourbon is experiencing a renaissance, rye has come back from the dead and American single malt is finding a foothold driven by pioneers like Westland and Triple Eight. But, not all craft whiskey is what it seems and mega-distillers like Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill have a major roll in craft as well.
In this whiskey class, Nick and Zach Taylor will help you navigate the American whiskey landscape, while sampling some exceptional and hard-to-find American whiskeys.
Whether you are new to whiskey or a wily veteran, this class will provide the foundation for understanding American whiskey so that you can have some “craft" in what you buy and drink.
