Women & Whiskies

As we close out Summer and welcome Fall it’s time to get excited again about the wonderful world of whiskey! Women & Whiskies looks to empower women with knowledge so they feel comfortable tasting, talking about, and buying a spirit that has been traditionally marketed and advertised to men. Join us for a cocktail hour and whiskey seminar on the beautiful patio of Branca where we will delve into categories, flavor profiles, and ways to find whiskies you love. A great afternoon to spend with your girlfriends, whether whiskey drinkers or not (yet)! Cocktails, light bites and tasting journals will be provided.

Please note: This class will take place at Branca, 683 Pittsford Victor Rd, Pittsford, NY 14534. You must be 21+ to attend.
