Looking to host a spirited evening for your clients, co-workers or friends? Want to shake up the same old wine tasting fundraiser you do every year for your organization with a cocktail class?

If you don’t know the difference between Bourbon and Scotch, or simply want to train your taste buds, join me for a custom education session.  My specialty is “Women & Whiskey” but I cover a wide range of spirits and cocktails in a fun, interactive presentation.


“To say that the event was a smashing success is an understatement! We had about 25 women in attendance, at least half of whom had not tasted whiskey before, and they were skeptical about attending. Brandy arrived early for the event and immediately began flawlessly orchestrating an event that unfolded just perfectly. As the women arrived they were offered a whiskey smash, which immediately brought a smile to their faces, changed their minds about whiskey,  and got them excited for the evening that followed. Brandy’s presentation is a perfect balance of content, tasting and fun.  The pace at which she moved us through the 1.5 hour presentation was just perfect. Everyone left feeling both educated and excited. In the days that followed the event, I was approached by many co- workers, who had heard rave reviews about the event.  They asked if we could do it again and asked if they could be on the invitation list the next time. We are all looking forward to the next event with Brandy, as she delivers an experience that is both fun and educational.”

“We love working with Brandy at Gordon’s. She’s very knowledgeable when it comes to the spirits industry, in particular with regards to whiskey. The attendees at the Women & Whiskey event loved Brandy’s presentation and could not stop commenting on how engaging and energetic Brandy was. We’re really looking forward to working with her again soon.”
Nick Taylor,  Scotch and Whiskey Specialist, Gordon’s Fine Wines & Liquors

“I’ve been working with Brandy for many years. Most recently she has developed Women & Whiskey seminars in the Boston area for my magazines Where to Eat and Drink. With humor and knowledge I’ve witnessed her convert dozens of women to whiskey lovers… myself included!”

Jill Epstein, Publisher, Where to Eat and Drink

“When our company was thinking of creative ideas for a client event Brandy’s name immediately came to mind. We worked with her twice this year and have been so pleased with the results. Our guests who attended her Women and Whiskey course raved about the experience. I would confidently recommend Brandy’s class to anyone looking for a unique, educational and fun experience.”

How it Works:

Typically, I conduct a ninety minute to two hour tasting that include up to six spirits and sometimes a cocktail. Guests will learn about a specific category of your choosing: Cognac, Whiskey, Tequila…you name it, or I’ll come up with something special. Event must be private invitation only and all guests must be over twenty one years of age. We’ll work together on details and budget based on the number of guests (minimum of thirty attendees).
