Natural History of Wine, Beer, and Spirits – Bourbon

At Zoom

December 12, 2020 / 4:00 PM–5:00 PM

Explore the bourbon-making process and taste Knob Creek, Basil Hayden’s, and Jim Beam Black along with the experts. They’ll discuss the role oaks play in bourbon production, as well as the role of fire in bourbon production and in the natural environment of oaks.

Customize your experience with a range of ticketing options, from a fun night in learning about oaks and spirits, to a deluxe package of fine bourbons!
