Talking and Tasting at The University of Texas

If you’re in Austin this Thursday evening, and are looking for something to do that’s a little out of the ordinary, please join me at the University of Texas.

The UT Campus Club is hosting a bourbon tasting and discussion at 6 p.m. at The Carillon Restaurant in the AT&T Executive Conference Center. I promise this won’t just be about Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

We’ll discuss the history of bourbon whiskey in America; how fine straight bourbon is made; how we make ours at Garrison Brothers Distillery; proper techniques for nosing and tasting bourbon; and we’ll offer a comparative tasting of fine ryes and wheated bourbons.

Non-member tickets are $40 plus gratuity. Reserve your space by emailing or you can call Morgan at 512.471.8611.
