Virtual Holiday Party and Whisky Tasting

December 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a virtual holiday party with a professional-led whisky tasting. This virtual event will begin with a short discussion about what differentiates whiskies from other spirits and what defines whiskey styles. A tasting kit, which includes three, sample-sized bottles of whiskey, will be shipped to registrants prior to the virtual event.

Special guest: Robyn Smith, PhD

Robyn earned her PhD in chemical engineering from The City College of New York where she studied the kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions. Her appreciation for whiskey started before grad school and was catalyzed by her first purchase of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof. Robyn’s fascination with the art and science of whiskey continued to grow, which was pretty convenient since chemical engineering is directly applicable to distilled spirits production. So for two years, Robyn was the research chemist at a high-tech distillery in LA leading the R&D and working on production – she experimented with creating whiskeys, rums, and brandies at both benchtop and production size scales. The distillery closed down operations in March due to COVID-19 and that’s when she started NEAT. Robyn wanted to share her knowledge with others through her blog and to connect, educate, and build a community through the Whiskey Club.
