Filson Bourbon Academy received Rave Reviews from attendees last year – how do I know? I run DC Whiskey Drinkers on Facebook and many of our members attended!
The All-Day (well, it’s 6 hours with lunch!) startst at 10 am on Saturday, September 6th at Jack Rose Dining Saloon – For complete details on this event, go to TasteUSA – Filson Bourbon Academy
Mike Veach teaches the class and he has quite a Bio:
The Bourbon Academy™ Faculty:
Academy programs and events are led by Michael Veach, Filson Bourbon Historian. Since 1997, Michael has served on the staff of The Filson as a Special Collections Assistant, later moving to Associate Curator of Special Collections. In the past 20 years he has dedicated his time studying the distilling industry. In 2006 Michael was inducted into the Bourbon Hall of Fame. Michael is the author of Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage (2013), which was praised by The Wall Street Journal, Courier-Journal, and other national media. He is currently completing a second book on bourbon tasting with former Courier-Journal columnist Susan Reigler.
We’re also promoting whiskey events in New York, so take a look at Whiskey 101 at the Flatiron Room (and check the TasteUSA Schedule by Filtering any city with Whiskey/Spirits/Cocktails – you’ll definitely learn and taste some wonderful whiskies!)
