(Tickets available) In the year 2000, there were a few dozen craft distilleries making bourbon in the United States. Today, there are over 1,000, but not all craft whiskey is what it seems. Many of the craft distilleries are making good bourbon and rye, but some are "sourcing" whiskey from mega distilleries like MGP and Alberta Distillers. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it is important to understand how and where your craft whiskey is produced.
In this tasting, we will explore the craft boom and some of its best whiskeys, while helping you sort out which distilleries are producing whiskey and which are sources it. Our sampling may include Pikesville Rye, Barrel Bourbon, WhistlePig Farmstock, Taconic Bourbon, and Westland Sherry Wood American Single Malt.
