Save the Date for a Two-Part ‘Spirited’ Adventure

After the madness of election week, turn your mind to the simpler things in life with a two-part whiskey tasting and cocktail-crafting-at-home class brought you in partnership with San Francisco’s  The Whiskey Shoppe10th Street Distillery and  JVS Imports. This virtual experience will take part over two Saturdays and introduce you not only one of San Francisco’s premier distilleries and an unreleased blend in honor of  groovier times but also a master mixologist class on how to properly mix social lubricants for the strangest Thanksgiving yet. Participants will receive:


  • Sample bottles of 10th Street’s Peated and Rye whiskies alongside an unreleasedbottle of “Furthur” whisky, a groovy blend in honor of the bus which inspired Tom Woolf’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test as well as a guided tasting of all three by one of 10th Street’s master distillers
  • A self-contained cocktail crafting kit for an at-home cocktail set-up, guided by a mixologist from the Bay Area’s largest importer of spirits


Details:  Participation is free for BATW members and will include the cost of shipping to members’ addresses. Continental United States addresses only — no international shipping, unfortunately!


— Whiskey Tasting: November 7th 4 p.m.

— Cocktail Crafting Class: November 14th 4 p.m.

  1. It was great fun to receive and unwrap the samples of 10th Street’s Peated and Rye whiskies alongside an unreleased sample bottle of “Furthur” whisky! Not every day brings such a treat in our mail. Looking forward to the tasting on Nov. 7th! Thank you, Matthew Eley, for arranging such a novel event,
