At the beginning of the event, one will be warmly greeted by the host for the evening and his/her team of local & talented bartenders. You will hear the wonderful history of the 104-year-old bar Townhouse & The Del Monte Speakeasy while you mingle with the other attendees and enjoy your complimentary prohibition-style punch. You will then be seated and offered a specially selected whiskey for the event. You will enjoy a thorough explanation & history that we hope will increase your own knowledge of the selected spirit for the evening. We offer rare, antique & seasonal rotating spirits whose value far surpasses the cost of admittance. The host or brand ambassador will discuss and explain the various tasting notes after each spirit is served and tasted by you. This opens up a conversation with the audience that helps compare tasting notes which is so much fun. Don't worry, you don’t have to say a word if you don’t want to.
My name is Alix Fischer, and I am the Community Manager for the historic Townhouse bar & The Del Monte Speakeasy. I love traveling and finding new interesting & meaningful ways to create events for the patrons. I also assist with The Venice Underground Spirits Society events, in which we hold monthly tastings at the bar that shares knowledge of our 104-year-old venue & all the fantastic alcohol we showcase and serve there- We have rotating hosts with the utmost knowledge, enthusiasm, and pizazz! Our hosts use wonderful techniques to make our cocktails & tastings an experience in each sip!
Upon arrival, we will offer a seasonal punch followed by flights of 4 tasting glasses of the finest spirits we have to offer…
We will conduct our event starting in the Townhouse bar where guests are initially greeted then we will make our way down to The Del Monte Speakeasy below (on the second floor) where guests will be seated and the historic presentation and tasting will commence.
