Whisk(e)y Distilled Happy Hour with Author Heather Greene

  • Southern Efficiency 1841 7th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

From the proliferation of craft distilleries in the U.S. to rye whiskey’s explosive rise in popularity, whiskey drinkers have had much to celebrate in recent years. But, as it becomes ever easier to access a huge variety of whiskeys, many whiskey drinkers (especially novices) find themselves overwhelmed with questions: what separates rye from Bourbon? What do terms like ‘barrel strength’ and ‘single barrel’ really mean? Is it wrong to drink whiskey with ice? Renowned whiskey expert and author Heather Greene has spent years answering these questions and many more, demystifying whiskey and making the spirit more approachable to those who may find its intricacies to be a bit intimidating.

We’re very excited to have Greene join us at Southern Efficiency for an evening to celebrate the recently released paperback edition of her book, Whisk(e)y Distilled: A Populist Guide to the Water of Life. We’ll have copies for sale from our friends at Upshur Street Books, plus a $10 flight of some of our favorites from three whiskey categories - Woodford Reserve Bourbon, George Dickel Rye and Bruichladdich Islay Barley Rockside Farm 2007 Scotch - and our Johnny One Time punch for $7. Come have a dram or two and chat with a whiskey expert!
