2/11/2023 - Basil Hayden & Newberry Candy Tasting

February 11, 2023 03:00 PM until February 11, 2023 06:00 PM

Join us for a special Valentine's weekend Basil Hayden & Newberry Candy tasting as we welcome back Edwin Cruz, West Coast Ambassador for James B. Beam Distilling Co. who will taste us on three special expressions of Basil Hayden that are paired with unique creations from Newberry Candy.

Pairing menu listed below!

Tasting Flight:  

- Subtle Smoke (Paired with Dark Chocolate Toffee with Walnuts)
An 80 proof whiskey with mellow smoke and sweet vanilla notes and complementing spicy rye flavors typical to Basil Hayden bourbon’s high-rye mash bill.

- Toast (Paired with Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Caramel)
An 80 proof whiskey that consists of an entirely new mashbill, replacing the traditional rye grain with brown rice, which adds a hint of sweetness and a touch less spice with increased depth of flavor that comes from secondary aging in a toasted then flash-charred oak barrel.

- Red Wine Cask Finish (Dark Chocolate Dipped Cherries)
A blend of the classic Basil Hayden high-rye mash bill and bourbon partially aged in Californian red wine casks. Ripe with cherries & dried fruit, while also delivering characteristic bourbon flavors of vanilla and charred oak. Perfectly balanced.

Two times for tastings are available:
3:00 - 4:30 PM - 16 tickets - Tasting Ticket
4:30 - 6:00 PM - 16 tickets - Tasting Ticket
