Turning a Blind Rye

a special 2 part event of twenty expressions

date: Thursday, August 13 + Thursday, August 20, 2020 

time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm [PDT, Pacific Daylight Time]

location: Virtual Tasting via Zoom [in the safety of your home]

membership fee: $95 [twenty 1oz samples, delivered via FedEx]

• Advance enrollment is always required and must be 21+ to attend.

• Educational samples will be sent out via FedEx delivery.

• If the event is sold out please email us to be placed on the wait list.

It's been a while since we did a comprehensive blind tasting, to make up for that, we're going all out. 20 1oz. rye samples will be sent out to do a blind tasting over the span of two Zoom meetings. The only hint we'll give you is that the proof goes up over the course of the tasting and the details will not be revealed until the end of each meeting. Some of these ryes are easy to find around $40, others are far more elusive and run $200+.


We suggest that you explore these a few at a time and make tasting notes at your own pace. Also, save some to re-visit during the Zoom meetings as a reference to see if we can find a group consensus. 


We're going to send out all of the ryes at the same time (you will receive a box of 20 samples) and they'll be labeled into round 1 and 2. A scorecard and other details will be included in the package. This is going to be an intensely educational tasting and a chance to try some hard-to-find rye along with some standard expressions. This will be a small meeting of only 20 members.
