Nashville-based Pennington Distilling Company announced the launch of a blend-your-own-bottle offering for whiskey-loving guests.
The Davidson Reserve Blend Your Own Bottle Experience lets whiskey enthusiasts work with master distiller Carter Collins and his staff of blenders to blend their own unique Tennessee bourbon or rye whiskey taken from barrels in the distillery’s rickhouse.
Guests will taste samples from several barrels chosen by the distillery and record their impressions, aided by a flavor wheel to help guide them toward a desired flavor profile. Guest blenders will then blend different combinations to build aroma, body and finish until they find the blend they desire.
After designing the custom blend, a personalized bottle will await each guest at the end of the event.
The Davidson Reserve Blend Your Own Bottle Experience is offered the second Tuesday of each month beginning June 8 at 5:30 p.m. CST. Each event is limited to 24 people. The cost of $200 per person includes the Blend Your Own Bottle experience, a self-guided distillery tour, catered hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and a personalized engraved Davidson Reserve bottle. Guests may also purchase up to five additional bottles of their blend for $75 per bottle.
