Whiskey expert Buzz Dabkowski will guide the group on a tasting tour of carefully selected Scotch Whiskies. Each selection will be accompanied with a unique food pairing skillfully prepared by a well-known chef from Greenspoint Catering.

In one evening you’ll experience a variety of tastes from different regions in Scotland and learn to discern the differences. You’ll find new favorites to enjoy as we share information about the distilleries and regions of the whiskies you’ll sample. Plus we’ll learn which flavors to extract from the whisky samples and how to pair food with each.
