Bourbon Tasting, Meet the Makers, & SipScout Party

Meet the Makers! Bourbon Tasting Edition

SipScout Craft Alcohol Membership Club – February 2024

This month we’re welcoming 5 (FIVE!) craft bourbon makers to our SipScout party! We learn all about American’s spirit, do some epic bourbon tasting, and get to meet the makers and hear their stories from 5 of the 6 bourbons we’re sipping on from this months’ SipScout kit.  Listen in as we sip through their delicious Bourbons and hear from some legends in the industry…

This month our SipScout members are sipping on:

  1. Tamar Distillery’s Low Gap Bourbon
  2. Kings County Straight Bourbon
  3. Sonoma County Distilling Company’s California Bourbon
  4. Oregon Spirit Distillers Straight Bourbon
  5. Mad River Distillers Burnt Rock Bourbon
  6. Savage & Cooke Burning Chair Bourbon

Ready to join in on the educational tasting fun yourself? Good thinking! Join SipScout and get a new tasting kit delivered to your home each month to go along with our live virtual tastings and mixology classes!
