Description

Are you a whisky lover? Then bid on your chance to win this private whisky tasting for you and 4 friends with whisky sommelier Irene Tan of WhiskyMentors! Sample your share of rare, single barrel whiskies and other fine spirits, sure to please your palate.

WHISKY MENTORS is a consulting company started by Irene Tan in the spring of 2018 after she graduated from the Whiskey Marketing School as a Level 1 Whiskey Sommelier. It was evident that the whiskey world was on the brink of explosive growth, and it was a timely entry into the industry. Irene is now a Level 4 Whiskey Sommelier and her industry related qualifications include WSET 2 Wine and Spirits Certification passed with Distinction, Certified Specialist of Spirits (CSS), Certified Sherry Wine Specialist, Executive Bourbon Steward and Certified Whisky Ambassador. In the summer of 2022, she completed a week-long whisky course at Springbank Whisky School in Campbeltown, Scotland.

Whisky Mentors is well-respected in the industry and highly sought after by brands and distilleries to carry their products. While it?s not just about the knowledge Irene has about the whiskies she carries, or how she picks winning single barrels, it?s about the passion that exudes from her veins when you meet her to talk about whiskies.

She listens to her customers and helps them find that special bottle to share with family and friends. Her innate and acute sense of smell and taste paired with an uncanny ability to create blends in her head that she knows are going to work, puts her in a unique position to help create whiskies and other spirits that consumers will seek.

Item Special Note

This private tasting will be hosted at WhiskyMentors at Canterbury Liquors in Canterbury, CT. Limit of 4 guests for tasting. Winner will be connected with Irene Tan to set up date and time of tasting.
