Whisk(e)y 101 with Will Drucker '08.5

Thursday, April 22, 2021 8:00 PM - 8:45 PM

Join Will Drucker ’08.5, founder of Split Spirits, for an introduction—or reintroduction—to the world of whiskey and the history of spirits in America, along with a guided tasting and Q&A. We will begin by exploring the history of whiskey and the barrels that give the drink its distinctive color and flavor. Then, Will will share how Split Spirits goes beyond the barrel to discover new and distinctive flavors—each rooted in the soils of Vermont, New York and his home state of Illinois. As we proceed on our journey of discovery, he will guide us through how to smell, taste and enjoy spirits and the flavors unique to each. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to sample three spirits, preferably different types of whiskey (i.e. bourbon, rye or scotch). If you would like to order Split Spirits, you can use the promo code MIDD20SPLIT to get 20% off through Split Spirits’online store. Please note that online shipments can take up to three weeks to arrive so please plan accordingly. There is no purchase necessary to participate.
