The historical roots and relationship between sherry and whisky runs deep.

Some of your favorite whiskeys use Sherry Barrels to create that magical finish to a grain spirit. Scotland and Ireland are kings of this, but American whiskey Makers are beginning to explore what happens to whiskey in a Sherry barrel. 

This is our chance to explore sherry and discover exactly what it adds to the flavor and smell of your favorite whiskey.

Come hear, see, smell and taste the styles of sherry and their impact on the world of whiskey with wine and whisky Sommelier Erik Wait at the Wizard Academy.

In this unique class you will learn about the history and production of Sherry wine while sampling Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Palo Cortado and Pedro Jimenez sherries. You will then get to sample Scotch, Indian, American Malt whiskies as well Bourbon aged / finished in all four styles of sherry casks.

We will be doing this event in the Wizard’s Tower on Campus. We’ll also be limiting the class size to 20.
