In advance of the upcoming sold-out WhiskeyFest, The Martini Bar will hold an educational whiskey exploration on Wednesday, April 13. Johnny Walker Ambassador Steve Cole and in-house mixologist Lisa Selman will guide participants through the different regions and tasting profiles associated with whiskey.
The event includes a welcome cocktail, the Parisian Sunrise, seven spirit samples and appetizers. The evening’s menu is below. The fee to attend is $30 per person (advance, $35 at the door).
And to really top off the tasting, cigars from Jack Schwartz (a tobacconist located in the Board of Trade building) will be paired with the pours and will be available for purchase.
