Virtual Japanese Whiskey Tasting

October 27, 2021

Japanese Whiskey Tasting

Wednesday October 27th @ 6:30 p.m. CDT

via Zoom

Following on our successful tasting in June we’re going to have a second tasting of Japanese whiskeys, led by Chris Uhde, VP of Impex Beverages. 

Chris will lead us through a tasting of 5 whiskeys and explain how making rice whiskey differs from traditional whiskey production, and we’ll be able to compare the results of both production methods in the whiskeys we taste.

The relatively high cost of Japanese whiskeys is an obstacle for many people to try them, and this event will eliminate that problem. Event participation costs $25 which can be used as a credit toward the purchase of a bottle of one of the whiskeys tasted (to be used within 45 days of the event).   In addition, there is a registration fee and tax of $3.16, for a total cost of $28.16.

To sign up click here:

With your paid participation you will receive a free tasting sampler kit with the 5 whiskeys that you can pick up at our store.  You’ll receive a Zoom link to connect to the tasting from the comfort of your own home. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to both sample the whiskeys and learn from an industry maestro.  Spaces are limited so sign up today!
