Modeled after the core principles of reviews and rating bourbons on the podcast, Bonded In Bourbon; this blind date will lead guests through a unique speed=dating experiment with various brands of bourbon. This casual seminar will force guests to ditch brand loyalty, and challenge their senses by focusing on the 5 core descriptors used in Moonshine University’s Stave and Thief Society teaching manuals: Appearance, Nose, Taste, Mouthfeel, and Finish.

Up to 50 Guests will enter into a private room where 5 Stations will be setup. Like a round of speed dating, guests will have 10 minutes at each table to taste, discuss and judge the presented bourbon ‘date’ with their table-mates. When the buzzer dings; scores will be tallied and then will switch to a new table where they will meet their next ‘date’ and will start the process all over again. Once everyone has worked their way around the room; the bourbons will be revealed while all of the scores will be tallied up. The winning bourbon will be announced and will be crowned the ‘The Best Blind Date’ of the seminar.

Samara Rivers and Armond Davis, founder of Black Bourbon Society and co-hosts of the Bonded in Bourbon Podcast, will host and moderate this event.
