Adult Ed - Culinary Arts Class: Whiskey Tasting

Saturday, January 11, 2020 14 Tevet 5780

4:00 PM - 6:00 PMHome of Matthew and Lori Griffin

There might not be anything more uniquely American than Bourbon whiskey. American whiskey brands often celebrate idealized values—independence, pragmatism, guts. Could there be any three better words to describe the Jewish people. Did you know one of America’s oldest bourbon distilleries was founded by a Jewish immigrant? Did you know that Jews in America redefined the brewing, distilling and selling of alcoholic beverages in America including whiskey? In this class we will taste some of the finest whiskies America has to offer and the impact that Jews had on this industry. We will cover the problems that Jews in Europe had with discrimination and assimilation, and how upon their arrival in America, they were able to assimilate and have their ideas welcomed. And these ideas included whiskey distillation. Please join us on this journey between the connection of a mash of corn, barley, rye and wheat to Judaism. Either with an ice cube or served neat, together we’ll share the sweetness and past of the relationship between Judaism and Kentucky.
