Tuesday, Oct. 29th at 7pm, Angus, Andrew, and myself will be sharing the fruits of our labors on the road: The “White-Knuckle Driving Tour Report, Part 1- Ireland.” We brought back some treats from the other side of the pond that you can’t get here, and we want you to try them.

You can do so on the registration form.
A Welcome Punch will be served at 6:30pm, so come early and get a good seat. Tasting starts at 7pm SHARP, latecomers will not be seated, but can show their memberships card at the bar and receive a free punch and special discounts on featured whiskies.
Your RSVP does not guarantee a seat, come early and get cozy with your neighbor. RSVP here:
