Unlocking one’s inner whiskey aficionado is now within reach, right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip at Vom Fass Las Vegas.
Vom Fass, located at The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian (near TAO), has launched a new, free Whiskey Experience event on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. At the informal, 45-minute class, guests will learn about various whiskeys from around the world and how they are made, while getting an overview to understand the differences between bourbons, Irish whiskeys and Scotches.
Attendees will have the opportunity to taste one bourbon, one Irish whiskey and two Scotches during the experience, as they learn about various kinds of Scotches, blended whiskeys, blended malts, single malts and the different regions from where the spirits derive.
“In our store every product has a story, including all of the whiskeys,” said Kim Weiss, owner of Vom Fass Las Vegas. “This new program is an opportunity for our guests to broaden their understanding of the wonderful world of whiskey. Each whiskey event evening will be a little different than the next, so we encourage everyone to stop by as often as they’d like. Make it a date night, bring a friend, or keep all of the information to yourself to impress guests at your next dinner party!”
Reservations are not required. Those planning to attend can visit facebook.com/vomfasslasvegas to get specific details on which whiskeys will be featured and discussed.
At Vom Fass Las Vegas, casks of various spirits are suspended throughout the store. All of the spirits are estate grown, most by fifth generation spirit producers. A selection of wines from around the world is also available.
In addition to spirits and wines, Vom Fass offers a variety of vinegars from Italy, France, Spain and Germany, along with oils including extra virgin olive, nut and seed, health and cooking oils. All of the spirits, vinegars and oils are poured into re-fillable, environmentally friendly bottles straight from the casks.
