體驗簡介

Follow me on Instagram @bourbonmaven

You'll learn about whiskey in a private Oakland speakeasy amid an enviable collection of spirits from around the world. Is it whisky or whiskey? I'll teach you the differences and give you an overview of the various types of this famous beverage. You'll learn how to read a label and we'll discuss flavor profiles by age, finishes, adding water or ice, and more. The class will be approximately one and a half hours, depending on group size. It will include tasting notes for guests to note appearance, smell, and other comments. There's also a participatory session on reading labels and price points. Don't be fooled by marketing. All you need to know is on the label. Other topics of interest include the history of whiskey and women, how to create a tasting flight, barrel-aging cocktails, and other spirits, such as gin, tequila, and rum. Upon completion of the class, you will be my guest to taste what you've learned, compliments of your host. All are welcome! This is not a women only experience.
Other things to note
A taxi or ride share will be the best option for transportation.

"I drink and I know things." I've traveled all over the world touring distilleries and wineries. I started collecting in 2008 with a few bottles of bourbon and have grown my private collection to over 300 bottles. In 2015, I got my CSS—Certified Specialist of Spirits—designation from the Society of Wine Educators. I am a Certified Bourbon Steward. I have taught over 1500 people on whiskey education to groups and corporations, but mostly enjoy hosting women who want to learn what all the whiskey buzz is about.

In November 2018, I became President of the Seattle and Bay Area chapters of a global social club called Women Who Whiskey.

Surrounded by repurposed redwood and the caramel scent of bourbon, we will conduct our class in my private home speakeasy in Oakland.

Amazing experience that is unique and educational! If you’re interested in whisk(e)y and want to know what you’re talking about next time you’re in a bar, this class is for you! Niki is warm and knowledgeable. She breaks things down in a way that’s comprehensible. Highly recommend!

Great experience; highly recommend! There was a huge breadth of material to cover although I admittedly had trouble paying attention after tasting Whiskey Number 8... It was very well organized in a lovely, modern, safe setting. If you have no background or knowledge in Whiskey, this is The Best place to start; if you know a little bit, this is a good opportunity to taste different things in a structured manner; if you already know everything, this is still a good excuse to drink in the daytime~!

What an incredible experience, we learned a lot about different types of whisk(e)ys and Niki was really knowledgeable, with worldly experience about whiskeys.

This is an excellent experience for those who are interested in whiskey and want to expand their knowledge base. As someone experienced in whisk(e)y I still learned a lot about whiskey

I bought this for my husband, who says... I learned a lot about the whisky making process, how to read the labels on the bottles, and got to sample some delicious drams. Niki was knowledgeable and a fun teacher. It was a great experience. Thank you, Niki!

Niki was awesome! She was warm and welcoming and had quite the expert knowledge of whiskey. We walked away trying things we never would have elsewhere and got to learn a bit about the different cultures from around the world. I highly recommend this experience!
