Whiskey is more than a spirit. Whiskey is a lens through which we can examine culture, history, the rule of law, the impacts of taxation, and the nature of protest. As we taste some of the iconic styles of whisky during this introductory workshop, we will look at how science, technology, and law have impacted whiskey production. We will touch on whiskey’s early history and reflect on how it has shaped American history. Participants must be 21 to register.
This program is part of the TCU Whiskey School led by Dr. Eric Simanek, chair of TCU's Chemistry Department--a 38-hour comprehensive series of whiskey education courses delving into the intersection of science, art and history of whiskey. Take one, some, or all programs. The series is co-sponsored by TCU's College of Science & Engineering and TCU Extended Education.
