A wide range of tasty, weird and wonderful bourbons and whiskey were available for you to quench your thirst with. Even if you are not a huge fan of this sort of drink there was a taste in the room you would enjoy for sure. It was a great learning experience for you to explore new drinks that you have never tasted before, and discover more about your own likes and dislikes. I personally found 3 bourbons that I’d never even heard of before, that I don’t think I could go without in my spirits cupboard now!

There were over fifty different drinks available to sample, which could lead you to a very drunk afternoon! Taking the time to taste and appreciate was the key, leading to some great finds. If you enjoy a bit of atmosphere with your alcohol there was also a live band and some pretty cool Harley Davidson motorbikes kicking around.Like to learn? You were also taught interesting things about Bourbon and American Whiskey. For example Bourbon is most strongly associated with the state of Kentucky in the USA, whereas American Whiskey has a strong association with Tennessee. The difference between Bourbon and American Whiskey? It’s all to do with percentages of ingredients.
