The Game
Team Bourbon Tasting

Whiskey in Gaelic literally means "water of life". Find your inner Don Draper as you explore the delights of this 600 year old beverage while networking with other ‘Mad Men’ on your team.

What’s bonded bourbon? Single-barrel bourbon? What’s the difference between bourbon and whiskey? You will learn the answers to these and all your bourbon questions during the program. You’ll find out what to look for when tasting bourbon, cheap bourbons that are amazing, what to mix in bourbons, and more. And you get to put your new skills to the test in a blind taste test.

We also incorporate data from the emerging field of 'savoring', which shows the positive effects that different kinds of savoring have on your overall happiness and effectiveness. We’ll give you short exercises to help you to be more present to each moment, especially useful for important moments with clients or presenting to a group.

Team Bourbon Tasting is a fun and delicious collaborative program in a relaxed, informal setting. It’s perfect before or after dinner. If you’re looking for a creative alternative to another boring cocktail hour, here’s your solution! Fun and informative, you’ll leave better educated and better able to network with clients. Go ahead, Don Draper would be proud.
