What you'll do

Learn the finer points of whiskey tasting with an expert

Join me for a Whiskey Society - Invite Only evening at Bar Jackalope: an exclusive, intimate, bar-within-a-bar!

We'll skip the line, enter the secret door to the dimly lit bar, which is modeled after Japanese whisky lounges, then settle into leather banquettes and sip a classic cocktail (including a Japanese twist on a mid-century fave!) while a turntable spins a classic jazz record.

We'll taste a complimentary dram from my personal bottle of "the water of life." These bottles change monthly and are from Bar Jackalope's proprietary barrels, which means there are only 160-200 bottles in the world of these particular expressions. Meanwhile, I will share my knowledge about whisk(e)y including how to nose and taste and to "e" or not to "e"!

You'll also have the opportunity to purchase whisk(e)y flights and drams of rare and unique spirits from Bar Jackalope's extensive whisk(e)y list, as well as Ococoa Chocolates and Iberico ham.

Let's whiskey!

There were three of us and we had a great time and learned a lot. I have always been interested in the differences between Scotch, Whiskey's, Bourbons, etc. Kim walked us through all this and was able to answer all our questions.

It was amazing! If you want to discover one of the hidden gems of LA, Kim is definitely the best guide! It was an unique experience indeed. If you are in LA and if you like whiskey (or even if you do not know anything but you are enthusiastic), make sure not to miss it. Definitely one of the highlights of my LA trip!

Kim was a wonderful and knowledgeable hostess with a deep knowledge of all things whiskey or is it just with a Y :)? I highly recommend this experience.

Whiskey much? If the answer is no, then let your curiosity peak! She is an EXPERT with class. I'll never forget walking into the bar, going upstairs and I felt like a VIP. Wow! Then you go to this separate section for specialized whiskey tastings and conversation about it. Kim was very var knowledgeable about whiskey, super friendly and this is really about you. It's one of: first time whiskey drink, curious but not expert, or you appreciate drinks and wanted to try something new. Either way, Kim puts no pressure on you here. It's well worth it! Thanks again!
