Classic Cocktail Tasting

Classic Cocktail Tasting

Toronto Common is partnering with Do Not Disturb at the Beverley Hotel for a classic cocktail tasting series!

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our Seasonal Cocktail Tasting it’s that there’s a lot of curiosity and debate about classic cocktails. 

As always we encourage tasting for yourself so we’re adding a Classic Cocktail tasting in the new year at Do Not Disturb, the Beverley Hotel’s new restaurant and bar.

Whisky 2.0 Returns - Barrel Aging Whisky/Whiskey

Whisky 2.0 Returns - Barrel Aging Whisky/Whiskey

We're bringing back one of our most requested events, our Barrel Aging Whisky Tasting event at Boxcar Social Riverside with Toronto Common.

Boxcar Social’s Whisky director has selected a series of whiskies to showcase the differences between non-age statement versus age statement single malts, single barrel versus small batch bourbon, and a cask finished vs a cask strength single malt.

Whiskies come from all over the world, use different grains, and have different traditions. The one binding element of the spirit is barrel-aging. Every variety has it's own standards and practices, but what makes a whisky shine with golden or amber hues is the type of barrel or cask it's rested in. 

From virgin American Oak for Bourbon, to the Sherry casks used in Single malts, the wood will define much of the colour, aromas, flavours, and finishes of a whisk(e)y. 

In this tasting series, Ray will be taking us on an in depth look at how different casks affect the final product. What's involved in aging. How are different casks used to create unique flavour experiences. What are the rules of barrel aging.

A selection of Crostini, Cheese & Charcuterie will be available as well.

Tickets are $80 tax & tip included.
