Tuesday, August 6, 2019

7:00pm - 9:30pm

location: Sassafras Saloon (1233 N. Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90038)

We were extremely pleased to have Master Distiller Danny Kahn presenting Barton 1792 Distillery. We covered the baseline and several limited edition expressions. For the finale we were one of the first clubs to try their brand new 12 year old bourbon.

Before the tasting, we met at the front bar in Sassafras Saloon for small bites and a special welcome cocktail before heading upstairs to learn all about Barton 1792 Distillery.

Distilling, aging and bottling fine Bourbon whiskey are hallmarks of the historic Barton 1792 Distillery.
