Meet the Makers & Bourbon Blending Workshop

June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for an in-depth bourbon blending workshop lead by our very own Master Distiller, Jeff Fairbrother and Distiller, Jack Scardino. Coinciding with the release of our Rochester Cocktail Revival Single Barrel Bourbon, learn about the aging process and selection of barrels that have reached the optimal flavor. Discover the art and science of bourbon blending with Black Button! You will learn about distilling, barrel aging and how to blend bourbons from different barrels to achieve the perfect pour. Every barrel of aging bourbon has a slightly different flavor profile – from sweet, to oaky to spicy. Work directly with Jeff and Jack to identify these characteristics through taste and smell and by the end of this class, you will take home a 375mL bottle of bourbon that you personally blended!
