Natural History of Wine, Beer and Spirits – Bourbon

Enjoy bourbon with a touch of oak! Learn about oaks and the adaptations that make them especially suited to life in our region during a live bourbon tasting with Beam Suntory Whiskey Ambassador Amanda Gunderson and SBMNH Director of Exhibits and Education Frank Hein. Explore the bourbon-making process and taste Knob Creek, Basil Hayden’s, and Jim Beam Black along with the experts. They’ll discuss the role oaks play in bourbon production, as well as the role of fire in bourbon production and in the natural environment of oaks.
