panel discussion

Water in Whiskey

Water is used in several parts of the whiskey making, and often whiskey-drinking process. It is used in fermentation, proofing before barrel aging, and in reducing whiskey to bottle proof. Then you may want to make a highball with it. We’ll look at the water used in these parts of the process (they are often all different!), how it impacts the flavor of whiskey, and why you might want to try different soda waters with your highball.   

We’ll also have a live Q&A so you can engage directly with our expert panel during the event 

Don’t forget to join us for other Panel Discussions, every Wednesday at 8:45pm EST/5:45pm PST
