Here are some more details about the NAW tasting event on November 15th. RSVP to Pat Vlk to get a spot for this event:
“A Journey through N.A.W.: Understanding American and Canadian Whisk(e)y”
The following N.A.W. tasting and information will take place in the 75 minute time frame.
Bourbon Whiskey – Country of origin is exclusively America. The Distilleries style, cereal grains used (must be at least 51%, no more than 79% corn) and steps to a finished product are crucial in identifying the product variations. Made anywhere in the US, with a minimum of 51% corn plus a combination of rye, barley or wheat, distilled at 160 proof or less, not introduced to the barrel at higher than 125 proof and aged in charred new white oak barrels. The barrels can only be used once, then discarded.
All Bourbon is Whiskey, but not all Whiskey is Bourbon.
Canadian Whisky – Country of origin is exclusively Canada. The Distilleries style, cereal grains used and steps to a finished product are crucial in identifying the differences.
All Canadian Whisky is Whisky, but not all Whisky is Canadian Whisky.
