Celebrate Tax Day with REIA! 

Please join us for an evening of curated whiskey tastings hosted and lead by Slightly Toasted, home of one of the largest whiskey collections in Chicago. Whether you have never had a sip before, or you are an experienced whiskey drinker, we have something for you. Our event will feature 4 different pours, including 2 Private Selections exclusive to Slightly Toasted. Guest speaker, REIA member and certified Bourbon Steward, Gina Caruso will be adding her dash of bourbon insights.   

        In this tasting, you’ll also learn:                                          

  • The economics of a distillery and the whiskey industry.
  • How to taste and nose whiskey (it’s the opposite of wine!) and discover what flavor profiles you prefer.
  • The extensive role women played in whiskey’s history and their key role in the future of whiskey.
  • To “E” or not to “E” – when to use “Whisky” or “Whiskey”.
  • Being this event is on Tax Day, you’ll learn how The Whiskey Tax literally funded the newly formed USA in the 1700’s.

Join us for a great time, networking and prepare to have fun!
Space is limited.  Please reserve early!
