Selecting Distillery & Location Alert:
If you do not see your preferred distillery/location below, it is sold out.


WhistlePig Dinner at Assembly Row: SOLD OUT
WhistlePig’s whiskey expert Chris Conroy will lead us in a tasting of 3 selections including a multi-functional sweet bourbon, a rye blend of 3 cask finishes, and our own exclusive private barrel. WhistlePig’s late Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell, was recognized by The New York Times as “the Johnny Appleseed of American whiskey,” and kicked off the most awarded rye distillery.

Jefferson’s Bourbon at Seaport: SOLD OUT
Jefferson Bourbon’s expert Lily Ritchie will be tasting a small batch whiskey plus 2 of their aged-at-sea whiskeys. Unlike a typical aging process, the aged-at-sea line is hyper-aged as it experiences extreme climates, constantly churning seas, and the salt of the ocean air. Guests will learn how this unusual aging process makes Jefferson’s Bourbon unlike other whiskeys on the market.

Buffalo Trace at Harvard Square: SOLD OUT
One of the most well-known distilleries in the business (and maker of Pappy), Buffalo Trace is loved by beginners and enthusiasts alike. Not to mention, they are America’s oldest continuously operating distillery for over 200 years. Buffalo Trace’s whiskey expert Aaron Johnson will lead us on a tasting of 3 bourbon selections: Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon – named after a member of the first families in bourbon history, Eagle Rare Bourbon, and their flagship Buffalo Trace Bourbon.

Heaven Hill at Kendall Square: SOLD OUT
Our Heaven Hill whiskey dinner is perfect for the whiskey enthusiast. As the distiller behind popular whiskey brands like Elijah Craig, Larceny, Old Fitzgerald, and Evan Williams, Heaven Hill is family-owned and operated and continues to receive accolades from the whiskey experts including Whiskey Advocate’s: Whiskey of the Year, 2019 & 2020 & SF World Spirits Competition: Distillery of the Year, 2019. Heaven Hill’s whiskey expert Jay Giordano will lead us on a tasting of 3 bourbons in their portfolio: Elijah Craig Small Batch, Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond 8 Years – a limited-release decanter series bottled in spring 2021, and Larceny Barrel Proof.
