(Selected from the following)

History of Distilling and the Cocktail including a Cocktail Tasting

Discover what distilling was used for in the Ancient World and how it transitioned in the 18th century and became a consumable spirit. The cocktail has a much-storied life and has evolved over the centuries. We’ll taste some classics that were known and enjoyed before prohibition.

Mixology 101

Learn how to make great cocktails and get an inside look at the many myths about the cocktail world. We’ll talk about where cocktails were invented and what country makes and shakes the best, and include a cocktail demonstration and tasting. Finally, the answer to the question…shaken or stirred?

Scotch Tasting

Join us for a tasting that explores the key Scotch producing regions of Scotland. We will feature many of the styles including single malts and several rare expressions that are highly limited. Our flight of Scotches will excite the senses as each one brings its own unique sight, smell, taste and finish. We will also discuss the rich history of Scotch that dates back to the year 1494.

Irish Whiskey Tasting

We will be offering a fantastic flight of Irish Whiskies that show off the best of Ireland. The tasting includes some of the best-known names and also the latest release of Slane Irish Whisky which is finished in three different casks, offering a very unique tasting experience. The Irish have been making whiskey even longer than the Scotch, dating back to 1404. The Irish whiskey category is growing quickly and making a big comeback as Ireland used to be the world’s largest country selling whiskey.

Food and Whiskey Pairing Experience

Most know about food and wine pairings but now you can experience a food and bourbon pairing. You will taste all the key components of an aged whiskey by simple pairings with citrus, chocolate, dried fruit and other combinations that bring out all the flavors of whiskey – thousands more tasting notes than wine!

Bourbon Inspired Dinner

Join us for a bourbon inspired dinner presented by the ship’s Executive Chef. Bourbon cocktails created by Tim Laird will be paired with each course. The chef and Tim will then talk about each course and how bourbon enhanced each dish as well as the cocktail pairings.
