Private Spirits Tastings is the internet’s largest go-to resource for whiskey reviews and news from around the whiskey world. Now, we are bringing the whiskey to you with curated tastings – for clients, customers, team building and corporate events of all kinds.

Throughout your experience, you’ll be personally & expertly guided by our Managing Editor & Tasting Curator Jay West. See what some of our top bottles and most well reviewed offerings taste like for yourself! Taste through the likes of Four Roses Limited Editions, a flight of Wild Turkey, Michter’s rarest releases, lauded collections like Buffalo Trace’s Antique Collection or enjoy the history and the prestige of the Pappy Van Winkle family of bourbons.

Our tasting program has access to the best whiskey your staff, guests, members or colleagues will want to enjoy, with expert curation at each step. If your tastes lean more vintage, you’ve come to the right place. Jay is an expert in spirits, knowledgable regarding spirits that span the globe. As a result, tastings of all kinda can be facilitated, including:

  • American Whiskey: Rye, Bourbon, Single Barrels
  • Vintage Pours: Dusty bourbon, rye & more, Bottled In Bond through the decades
  • Scotch: Single Malts by Region, Vintage Malts, Independently Bottled Flights, Macallan & More
  • Go Global: Indian Whiskey tastings, Japanese Malt flights available as well
  • Beyond Whiskey: Interested in rum, brandy, agave spirits and more? Contact us, and we’ll put together a unique package that goes beyond the world of whiskey, just for you!

We personally guarantee that each of the bottles tasted via our packages aren’t easily found on shelves, garner extremely high WhiskeyRaiders scores and would require a serious hunt to track down – if they’re available to the public at all. Verified authenticity comes with Jay’s notable experience in the industry.

Connect with clients, customers and employees with an unforgettable private whiskey tasting. Contact [email protected] for more information.

Jay’s expertise in assembling your tasting, guiding you and your guests, and most importantly: providing an educational and fun gathering in a laid back setting is unparalleled. Expect to learn about history, production, tips to start or deepen your whiskey tasting skills and glean insight into what makes some of the most lauded producers in the world of whiskey worth their salt.

Tastings are best facilitated in person, anywhere in the United States. That said, due to the global pandemic, and the availability of accessible technology, virtual tastings are also welcome, and easily managed by the Whiskey Raiders team. You can expect a tasting to run about an hour at the shortest, up to two hours at the longest, based on the type of tasting and headcount for your event. Rare whiskey tastings can take place between a small group, or a large team – the size of the event is entirely up to you.

With proper notice, we can also work with your catering or entertainment vendors to deliver pairings and specialized events that won’t ever be forgotten.
