Course 1

How to make a great whisky cocktail

When it comes to a great-tasting cocktail, you need more than a delicious mix. It takes the right glassware, the right ingredients, and the right technique.

Nick Kennedy, Aldo Pescatore-Tardioli and Jess Mili are award-winning bartenders behind some of Toronto’s best bars. For the first class, participants will learn how to make the perfect cocktail with Forty Creek. This includes understanding the right glassware, crafting artful garnishes, learning new mixing techniques and more.

During this session you will learn to make a smoked maple old fashioned and a bespoke whisky sour - and of course, get to enjoy your creations.


Course 2

The World of Whisky with Forty Creek

Forty Creek Brand Ambassador, Chris Thompson is someone who has lived and breathed whisky for many, many years.

Having tasted almost every whisky around, Chris will take you on a journey to discover whiskies around the world and demonstrate what sets Canadian whisky apart. He’ll also cover how Forty Creek influenced what we know of Canadian whisky today.

Participants will be challenged with identifying different aromas and tastes in several different Forty Creek whiskies.
