Just when we thought our educational tastings series could get any better, we are again raising the bar and putting together one of the most innovative tasting events in the country!
(Please Read ALL Details Below)

The St. Louis Bourbon Society is extremely proud to virtually host an all-star lineup with some of the superstars of the industry! 

Please join us on April 28th at 7pm CST as we welcome Bourbon Hall-of-Fame Member, Co-Creator of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Founder of Bourbon Women and First Master Bourbon Taster in the World, Peggy Noe Stevens, alongside Michter's Master of Maturation and the first woman to serve as chair for the Kentucky Distiller's Association, Andrea Wilson.

As a special bonus, we will also be joined by the Cocktail Contessa herself, Kentucky's own, Heather Wibbels who will be helping us create a unique drink called the French Quarter Manhattan made using Michter's own Rye Whiskey and a list of other unique ingredients that will be included in every take home kit! Heather is an Executive Bourbon Steward and Cocktail Artist who is passionate about her craft. This is sure to be an evening of Whiskey and Wisdom like only these ladies can do!

As we begin the evening, Peggy will teach us to taste like a pro, identifying each of the profile flavors and discuss pairing them with simple foods. She and Andrea will talk about the complexities and nuisances that make Michter's such a beloved product among whiskey enthusiasts. Peggy will also be discussing her latest book: "Which Fork Do I Use With My Bourbon"  (each attendee will receive a FREE hardback copy with every ticket!!!)

Peggy will then lead us on two special pairings: Bourbon and Wasabi Peas and Michter's Barrel Strength Rye paired with natural Carmel. This should be a unique experience for sure!

As we round out the evening, what better way than with a cocktail! Heather will teach us how to make a half recipe classic cocktail with a twist. Each participant will receive a custom etched Michter's Rocks Glass ($20 value) and all of the pre-measured ingredients to make their own cocktail at home!

Half French Quarter Manhattan:
1 oz Michter's Single Barrel Rye
½ oz Rivulet pecan liqueur or Praline Liqueur
1 dash chocolate bitters

Garnish: candied pecan or cherry/orange peel. Combine whiskey, pecan liqueur, and bitters in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until well-chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a candied or toasted pecan, or a cherry and orange peel. 

As a super Patreon Bonus, the first 50 ticket purchases will also receive a free jar of Premium Peninsula Cocktail Cherries! (a $12 value)

Please join us for an amazing evening with these amazing ladies and superstars of the Whiskey industry!
