Craft Whiskey Class - The CONNtucky Derby Weekend Kickoff

CONNtucky Derby Craft Bourbon Class

Last year Heather Prost, Sazerak Portfolio Brand Manager, helped us to “Understand Pappy” and guided us through their craft Bourbons. The students were able to learn the Julienne "Pappy" VanWinkle story and a whole lot more about the secretive and booming world of craft Bourbon. 
Since that time we have been asked time and again to get her back in here and give some other people a chance to taste some of these legendary Whiskeys. We've reached out and with a bit of prodding, we were able to get her to commit to visiting us again.
 Wednesday April 30th, just in time for the 2014 run for the roses, she is back! We will start our evening with a traditional Mint Julep made from Buffalo Trace Bourbon to wet our palates then it is on to an evening of tasting rare and hard to find Bourbons and even a Rye or two along the way. Just like last year Pappy will make an appearance and we will also dig into our personal stash and break out some other impossible to find items from the legendary portfolio including one of Heathers personal favorites.
