Tasting bourbon is fun, whether it is a blind tasting event or casual, social gathering. Having several friends over to sip pours can expand your knowledge of bourbon and introduce folks to new favorite picks. You can share a vertical collection or showcase some rare finds. You can even challenge each other in naming the distillery, brand, or location where the product aged in the rickhouse! No matter how you set up the tasting event, it a surefire way to celebrate the variety that America’s Native Spirit provides.

Once you are more comfortable in sharing bourbon and some related trivia, you may be interested in hosting a tasting event. This challenges you to know your stuff, as guests will be looking to you to share history, factoids, and tasting notes pertaining to the provided pours. Just make sure you have enough tasting glassware for guests, such as the common Glencairn.
