Happy Hour Whiskey Tasting!

In the July 2021 installment of our members-only Zoom happy hour educational series, we offered participants the chance to taste along as we discussed the flavor nuances of several small batch bourbons.

On Thursday, July 1, 2021 at 8:30 pm ET (7:30 pm CT), we teamed up with Jeremy Elliot, Head Distiller and co-owner of Smugglers Notch Distillery for an exclusive tasting of four single-barrel bourbons. Jeremy walked us through as we tasted four different bourbons shipped to participants in a special pack containing 50 ml of each bourbon (a little over a shot of each), plus a free sample of Smugglers Notch vodka.

It was a virtual tasting event conducted through Zoom. The event lasted approximately one hour followed by a Q&A. At its conclusion, participants received a special discount code to purchase 750mL bottles of bourbon if they so chose.

This event was exclusive to’s Pitmaster Club members.
