In person whisky tastings and virtual whisky tastings


Whisky Tastings:  Live or Remote via Zoom  

(These are not virtual tastings because the participants are drinking real whisky)

Professionally produced whisky tastings by the Whisky Education Foundation

We are about education because the more you know, the more you appreciate and enjoy. 

How it works:  A typical tasting kit will have 6,  1 once samples of whiskies and a tasting glass.  These can be shipped or picked up by the participants in San Francisco. A zoom meeting is scheduled with a Whisky Edu expert who will provide an explanation of what whisky is, guide guests on how to taste and then proceed with an entertaining and informative whisky tasting adventure. Zoom participants are encouraged to interact and ask questions.  The experience lasts about 45 minutes.  Tastings can be customized to be shorter or longer and to have fewer or more samples.  The depth of detail and content the presenter covers can be customized for each audience.

We are now doing in person tastings with our fully vaccinated whisky guides. In person tastings typically include more expressions, but smaller samples.

There is a speaker talent fee of $150 to $300 for the hour depending on the speaker.
