The Last Word's "You Be The Judge"


A practical how-to guide for blind tasting spirits like a pro -with Robyn Cleveland

Forget the labels, marketing hype, and what you heard or saw. It’s time to strip everything away and decide for yourself! Learn from an award winning bartender turned Distiller as you’re guided through the techniques associated with tasting spirits across multiple categories. The model followed will be similar to blind taste judging that takes place at international spirits competitions. Your senses will be challenged, your skills will be honed, and you may even be surprised by the results.

Topics include:

What your eyes can tell you

The importance of smell

Stages of tasting

Mouth feel and texture

Checking your work

Cleansing your palate

Picking a winner!

 2.5 drink equivalent will be served across 3 rounds of judging. Un-aged/ and "nuetral"spirits, Botanical Spirits, and Aged spirits.

 *** Prizes awarded for exceptional abilities***

Light snacks included
