PROJECT V (FOR VODKA)

If you ever thought vodka was this flavourless neutral spirit, this mission is for you! Embark on a journey where we debunk some vodka myths and taste some mighty fine vodkas that defy the popular stereotype with a focus on those smaller artisan producers. Ever had a vodka where you could taste chocolate-y notes (without any flavourings added to the vodka we might add) or one that could be mistaken for tequila? These are the new wave of premium vodkas that are not generally found in your corner bottle-o. Generally lasting about 1 - 1.5 hours (some set up time will be required prior), this is the perfect activity for groups small or large and any time of the day.


THE DETAILS

Tasting session for $79 per person* includes:

Tasting flight of 5 different vodkas (add on of a cocktail to finish available for an additional fee)
An experienced host(ess) to guide you through the tasting
All glassware
Tasting sheet and tasting props
