In this class we'll be looking at Bourbon and Rye whiskies. We'll cover the history of whiskey making in America, as well as current rules and laws regulating these spirits. What is bourbon? Who makes it and where? What does 'small batch' mean? We'll answer all of these questions and expose a few myths in the process.
We will also be exploring and making (and of course drinking) the Manhattan and other cocktails. You'll find out how to modify your Manhattan to fit your personal tastes and why we never, ever, shake our Manhattans.
Bourbon is the official spirit of the United States and, along with Rye, is experiencing a renaissance here and in Europe, in this class you'll find out why.
