The Montessori School of Dayton Foundation has become pretty successful with their winter beer tasting event, founded in 2011 it’s been a sellout for the last few years. So for a spring event they’ve launched a Whisk(e)y for Wisdom event that will take place this Saturday night from 5:30-8:30pm. With the rare opportunity to head inside the hallowed halls of the Engineer’s Club, guests will help support the school’s foundation to award grants, scholarships as well as support teacher education. Mike Schwartz from Belmont Party Supply and Ollie’s Place will help guests explore the differences between whiskey and whisky types, discover brand differences and the history of this fermented grain mash.
Tickets to the Whisky for Wisdom Event cost $45.00 and include:
8 (1/2 oz pours)
A bonus cocktail or special whiskey
A souvenir tasting glass
Coffee and dessert towards the end of the event
Additional tastes and cocktails will be available for purchase at the event. A sampling of the whiskies to taste include High West Campfire, Town Branch Rye, Oyo Olorosa, Woodford Reserve Double Oak and Glenfiddich 18.
