Jim Beam is very much the Henry Ford of Whiskey and while most assume that it was the Irish and Scots who brought whiskey to America, Beam is actually the Anglicized version of the name Boehm...that's right, he was of German descent. Americans, true to their nature, pioneered their own style of whiskey that had little to do with scotch and Irish whiskey.
In this interactive tasting class, we will explore the different styles of whisk(e)y from single malt scotch, to Irish whiskey, to American bourbon. Bring your A game... whoever wins the blind tasting will walk away with a prize and all kinds of street cred. Nick and Zach Taylor - of Taylor & Taylor Whiskey Co. - will help you navigate the world whiskey landscape, while sampling some exceptional scotch, American and Irish whiskeys.
We'll also provide a local cheese and snack board from Appleton Farms, the Boston Public Market's local cheese purveyor that carries 100+ Massachusetts cheeses.
