Dale DeGroff’s “Gamblers, Whiskey & Flying Horses”

Dale DeGroff

Part cocktail seminar, part live entertainment, this tribute to whiskey and “horseplay” with James Beard Award-Winning, world renown Mixologist and author Dale DeGroff is a Runyonesque romp through the Sporting Life in America.

Long before America fell in love with baseball, crowds gathered at racetracks to watch the heart-pounding drama of powerful thoroughbreds thundering toward the finish line. Horse racing began in the Old World but soon became a favorite pastime in Colonial America. Its popularity spread from Virginia to New York and – most importantly – to central Kentucky, where distilling and horse breeding grew side-by-side into thriving industries.

During this entertaining presentation, sample the best whiskey cocktails created through the ages as we celebrate the heritage of Bourbon Whiskey and the entrepreuneurs who pioneeered the great American spirit.

So, pull on your boots and pull up a chair – it’s going to be an exciting ride!
