Taking the Bite Out of Whiskey (Class + Dinner) | Boston Wine School @ VINOvations

June 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


The word “whiskey” comes from old Gaelic and means the “water of life”.  It’s no wonder why we feel the need for a refill now and then.

Taking the Bite Out of Whiskey is an ideal class for all levels – experienced whiskey adventurers and those just starting their journeys.

The evening begins with a 2 hour class providing an overview of the wide world of whiskey.  You will learn how to taste and talk about whiskey while comparing whiskey styles, ingredients, and origins.  Appetizers and an assortment of cheeses will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing whiskey and food.  After class, we’ll clear our palates and our heads with an American barbecue dinner paired with wine.
