It’s time for our next round of Whiskey Tastings! Once a week for the next few months, Delilah’s will be hosting a series of virtual Whiskey tastings with some of our dearest Whiskey industry friends. We’ll be sampling some exciting new and often rare and in many cases extinct Whiskies. Our first two events are sold out! Here are the next two tastings which involve Whiskies that we have collaborated on and thus released custom Delilah’s expressions! If you would like to participate send an email to Mike@delilahschicago.com and we will arrange for your sample pickup or delivery. A limited number of tasting kits will be available for each tasting so please sign up soon!
Maker’s Mark – Always A Part Of Our Family. On Friday, February 5th at 7pm CST join us for an amazing evening with our old friend Bill Samuels, Jr.! Bill will be joined by Master Distiller Denny Potter and Private Select Director Jane Bowie! We will be having a truly unique tasting involving our Delilah’s Maker’s Mark Private Select released in June of 2016 to commemorate our 800th Bottle of Whiskey on the Wall. The Private Select project involves Maker’s that begins as fully matured and cask strength and then created by adding 10 custom wood finishing staves to each barrel and then extra aged. We had the privilege to have a say in our own selection of different wooden staves! We chose a combination of four of those variable staves to design our Delilah’s Maker’s Mark Private Select. In this unbelievable experience we will be sampling single barrel versions of each of the stave options that are employed in our version – these staves are known as Roasted French Mocha, Toasted French Spice, Maker’s 46 and Seared French Cuvee. This event will be full of a century of Bourbon knowledge and decades of laughs with our Kentucky family down there in Loretto! The cost for this tasting is $85.
