For the first time in America the wonders of peat are revealed at this strikingly splendid inquisition into the magic of peat. Join our panel of experts at this sideshow seminar to learn not only the history of peat and its influence on the world, but how exactly the wizardry of peated whiskey is executed through a succession of seemingly impossible feats. A complimentary flight of whiskey will be provided to all ticketholders, including a pouring of this year’s Commemorative Peat Week Bottling. More drams, cocktails and small plates from our new Cantilever Room menu will also be available for purchase. 100 tickets available.
