Do you hear the pipes a calling? They are calling you to Michael's new "Whiskey Club" tastings.

Each month, on the 2nd Tuesday, the Wine Cellar will host a special tasting of some of the finest whiskey and bourbons currently available. These new monthly events will provide educational background information for each spirit poured.   
Our inaugural tasting will feature a lineup of Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch:

  • Glenmorangie "Lasanta" - Aged in Sherry Casks
  • Glenmorangie "Nectar d'Or" - Aged in Sauternes Casks
  • Glenmorangie "Quinta Ruban" - Aged   in Port Casks
Join us at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, September 9, as we demonstrate the effects of aging whiskey in different types of barrels.  
Admission is $10 per person and reservations are strongly encouraged. Click here to make online reservations now.
All of the products tasted will be available for purchase or special order the night of the event. Plus, attendees will receive a $5 coupon for any purchase made (or special order placed) that night.
