You can become a whiskey mayven too!
Whiskey University is a fun and interesting tasting course on the history, production and major styles of this popular spirit. The evening will be led by Mystic Farm founder Jonathan “Blitz” Blitz, an active member of the Triangle Jewish community. We will learn through slides and discussion while tasting the five major styles of whiskey; Irish, Scotch, Canadian, Rye and Bourbon, plus Mystic Bourbon Liqueur, along with a few of our own favorites whiskeys. Trace the roots of whiskey from the Sands of the Middle East to the Blue Ridge Mountains and learn how the production process influences the characteristic flavors of each style.
“Blitz” will present the distilling process first hand during the evening while touring the world’s only solar powered Bourbon Distillery. Mystic Farm and Distillery is a field-to-bottle distillery producing award-winning spirits in the Triangle. With a 50 kilowatt solar array, and more than 35 acres under cultivation at two sites, the distillery produces world-class spirits using solar power, water from the Triassic Basin Aquifer, heirloom grains and hand-coopered barrels.
The cost of the evening will be $35 and includes snacks, tastes of very nice whiskeys, and a donation of bottles to the whiskey table at Beth El Shabbat kiddush lunches.
There is a maximum of 45 people. Payments must be made by April 4. If you have questions, please contact Mike Resnick (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Adam Singer (email@example.com)
