Beverage Workshops | 21+ Only

Behind the Blend

High Wire Distilling

This workshop will give you a look into the life of a Master Blender – a spirits blender, that is – with the help of Scott Blackwell of High Wire Distilling and special guest Bill Thomas, owner of Washington, DC’s award-winning Jack Rose Dining Saloon. Each guest will develop their own blended spirit using a combination of components that express different characteristics. You will learn the nuances of different barrels and how these, and the ingredients within them (cue rosemary, ginger, lemon, basil, and more!), affect the flavor of what you’re cocktailing. This multi-sensory experience will conclude with each guest mixing their own custom blended sample to enjoy at home.
