Kimchi Tasting Party

Did you know that there were over 100 different kinds of kimchi? While most people are familiar with the fiery red hot kind made from nappa cabbage, kimchi -- simply, a fermented pickle -- can be watery, cool, shredded or cooked, and made from cucumber, daikon, turnips and more. The possibilities are endless. 

I invite you to come over my house to try out five different kinds of kimchi, paired with what has been defined as the "PBR of South Korea": makgeolli.

Each guest will also leave with a small mason jar of homemade kimchi made by yours truly. :)

American Rye Whiskey Tasting: A History

Before bourbon became the American Spirit, there was rye whiskey.  The Whiskey Rebellion was a rye whiskey rebellion and George Washington was, at one time, the largest distiller of rye in the country.  Now, in part due to the classic cocktail revival, rye is more in demand than ever. 

I invite you to come over to my house to taste through America's history with rye.  We’ll kick things off with a little Rock and Rye -- a sweet rye whiskey infusion used for “medicinal purposes” during the Prohibition era -- before tasting through 4 distinct styles of rye including some from my personal collection which are no longer readily available.  Whiskeys will include an 18th century-style rye of the type made by America's first distillers, a Kentucky-style rye of the kind made after most rye production shifted west of the Appalachians, as well as two other contemporary styles--one from Indiana and one from Canada!  We'll discuss the reasons why each of these styles taste the way it does as well as some great uses for this robust, flavorful spirit!
