Whiskey Tasting at Aurora Cooks! 6:30 pm


February 29 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Whiskey’s not just for cowboys!

Join team member Mitchell White at Aurora Cooks —the Inns of Aurora’s stunning new demonstration kitchen—for a relaxed and educational tasting experience. Gather around the island or have a seat at a nearby table as though you’re at a chef’s home kitchen and enjoy all of the comforts afforded by an outstanding host.

Whiskey’s not just for cowboys! For the uninitiated, the word “whiskey” often brings to mind the scorching stuff that movie outlaws knock back before a shootout. In reality, whiskey encompasses a whole world of flavor: from Kentucky to Ireland to Scotland to Japan, the world’s foremost whiskey-producing regions each have a distinct style. We’ll show you some of the best ways to enjoy your whiskey – it’s not an endurance contest! – while discovering the styles that best suit your tastes. This demonstration will have something for whiskey newcomers and single-malt veterans alike: find some new favorites, and make some new friends, while discovering everything these carefully-crafted beverages have to offer.

Please register in advance. Doors open and check-in begins 10 minutes prior to start time. Classes begin promptly.

Round out your visit with dinner at 1833 Kitchen & Bar. Reservations strongly encouraged.

FINE PRINT: Please inform us of any food allergies when registering. As classes are designed for demonstration and not intended to be a meal, separate dishes will not be prepared based on preference. Classes are open to guests aged 18 years and older, and a valid photo I.D. will is required to be served alcohol. Cocktail and wine classes require that all participants be at least 21 years old. If you are unable to attend a class, you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance to receive a refund, retain a credit, or transfer to another class. Without the 24 hour notice, the registration fee is non-refundable. You may, however, send someone to class in your place. Please notify the Inns of Aurora reservation team of your substitution by calling 315.364.8888.
