If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

An International Whisky Journey in New York

Submitted by on February 12, 2020 – 8:06 amNo Comment

Robin RobinsonRoad Trips Foodies familiar with a certain tipple from Scotland know that the Scots call it “whisky” — without the “e” that Americans prefer.

The evening, which includes a tasting of spirits from six countries (Scotland, Ireland, Canada, United States and Japan, “with a few surprises added in”) and light refreshment, begins at 6:30 p.m. February 25, 2020, in the Union Club, 101 East 69th Street, New York, New York.

This event, sponsored by the American-Scottish Foundation in association with the Burns Society of New York City, promises an international whisky journey with Robin Robinson (pictured, at left), author of “The Complete Whisky Course” (he’ll also sign copies of his book).

Robinson is a whisky educator who created the popular Whisky Smackdown series at the Astor Center in New York City. He has taught at the Culinary Institute of America and the Institute for Culinary Education, lecturing extensively throughout the United States.

In “The Complete Whisky Course”, the author demystifies the “water of life” as he takes readers on a global tour of the expanding world of whisky. He explains whisky’s history, how it defined the way whisky is made in different countries and regions, the myriad styles, how aging and finishing works, and the basics of “nosing” and tasting whisky. It also offers recommendations on how to lead your own tasting, a glossary of terms, food pairings, and tips on everything from glassware to how to read a label.

Non-member tickets for the event and the book are $85. Jackets and ties for gentlemen and clothing of equivalent formality for ladies are required at all times. No Jeans or sneakers are permitted.
