What you'll do

The class will start with getting you acquainted with basic history and fundamentals of the bourbon making process. How it began, how it is made and how it has changed and/or stayed the same over the years.

During this time, we will try a wide-ranging selection of bourbons. Abraham will show you all the different preferred drinking methods, what to look for in each type of bourbon and we will pinpoint what you like and don't like about each one. Finally, we will move on to making one of the most iconic bourbon cocktails in the world, the Old Fashioned. Abraham will teach you how to make a cocktail that was invented in his home state of Kentucky using classic ingredients. Be prepared to have a great time and make sure you have a little something to eat before the class.

Abe was incredibly warming and inviting from the minute we walked in. The event space was very clean, organized, and prepared when we arrived. He had a deep knowledge of the process and details. He offered a unique, personal experience that would be very difficult to achieve elsewhere. We learned a lot, had a great time, and got to try something new. I’d recommend it to all—even those who don’t necessarily like bourbon; It was a blast regardless. My friends and I are very happy we did it!

Such an incredible experience! Abe knows a ton about Bourbon, and was a joy to be with. He easily answered my many questions, and leveled up my palate and knowledge more than I thought possible in a short time. Highly recommended!
