Wall Street Journal-Bestselling author Fred Minnick and Bourbon Hall of Fame inductee Peggy Noe Stevens headline the bourbon personalities. These two alone have, combined, conducted more than 1,000 bourbon seminars around the world.
Whiskey From Home includes bourbon history, the best bourbons to buy right now, craft whiskey exploration, how to host a kick-ass tasting, and blind flights. Viewers can purchase bourbon, food, and cocktail ingredients from their local stores to follow along with cocktail breaks, a virtual food pairing with Stevens, and a virtual bourbon tasting with Minnick. With an integrated live chat, participants can network with each other and interact with the presenters.
“This was an opportunity to bring a force of recognizable bourbon names together and build a first of its kind,” says Minnick, a co-founder of Bourbon & Beyond and editor-in-chief of Bourbon+ Magazine, in a press release. “This gives everyone sitting at home that has ever wanted to attend a whiskey conference a chance to do it for free.”
The entertaining and educational sessions include the following bourbon personalities: Bourbon & Banter, Bourbon Pursuit, Bourbonr, Breaking Bourbon, Dad’s Drinking Bourbon, Fred Minnick, It’s Bourbon Night, Peggy Noe Stevens, Rare Bird 101, Sipp’n Corn, Subourbia, t8ke.review, The Bourbon Enthusiast, and The Bourbon Review.
