Whether you are an aficionado or new to whiskey (or ‘whisky’) this club will have something for you. When we have our Wilco Whiskey Gatherings we will taste, quaff, and savor multiple whiskeys while we learn from an expert how each master distiller imbues his or her unique ‘spirit’ into each bottle. We will compare whiskeys, discuss each tasting note, and learn from the best.
Some special bottles we try will be offered at discounted price during the evening of the Gathering and only to our members. Sometimes we will be trying some highly-allocated bottles and quantities will be limited.
If you like whiskey of any type or just want to expand your palate and try something new, this group is for you. (…and, it is FREE to join.)

Thank you to all who came to our Wilco Whiskey Third Gathering! We had over 50 people in attendance which made the event standing-room-only (and a bit warm) but there were lots of friendly people and great whiskey to be tasted.
At this Third Gathering we first tried the original Maker’s Mark bourbon followed by Maker’s 76 and Maker’s Cask Strength and learned about the methods employed by Maker’s Mark to make each bottle unique. Those in attendance were the first to open and taste the Maker’s Mark Private Select – Roger Wilco Oak Stave Selectionand, as a bonus, everyone received an exclusive Wilco Whiskey Glass which was dipped in the Maker’s Mark wax after the tasting. It was a great time.
Special thanks to Bryan who “took one for the team” and trekked to Maker’s Mark in Loretto, KY, toured the distillery, and learned about Maker’s long history and expertise in making great bourbon. He then spent hours laboriously tasting and concocting the best bourbon profile for our own Private Select Barrel by choosing from over 1001 Finishing Stave combinations.
