Last Thursday night I got the opportunity to drop some whisk(e)y knowledge on some folks at the RAIN Young Affiliates event at Dandelion Market.

We discussed the differences in American, Irish and Scotch whisk(e)y and featured some great products like Wild Turkey, Tullamore Dew and Monkey Shoulder while we sipped on an incredible cocktail made by the lovely ladies at Dandelion.

The RAIN Young Affiliates program is a great way to get involved in local RAIN activities such as the AIDS Walk in Charlotte.  Click HERE for more information on how to join…word has it, we’ll be doing some fun events like this one in the near future!!

Here’s a couple of photos from the event, hope to see you at the next one.

If you live in Charlotte, chances are you’ve met Bob Peters at Pisces Sushi. This dude can make one hell of a cocktail and the locals know it.

Charlotte’s cocktail culture has expanded ten fold and Bob, a native of Charlotte has been instrumental making that happen. He is a mad scientist and a genius at infusing spirits to make one-of-a-kind cocktails.

We’re super proud of Bob as he’ll be taking a position with The Punch Room at the Ritz Carlton, we can’t wait to stop in for one of Bob’s famous concoctions.

Check out the video below to get to know Mr. Peters!!
