The cost of a bourbon tasting experience is dependent on the amount of people attending, format (virtual, classic tasting, curated spirits bar, tasting dinner), the bourbons to be sampled, and the selection of additional event options (e.g., custom glassware, food pairings, etc.)

Bourbon tasting experiences start at $650.

Each Bourbon Tasting Experience includes the following:

  • Pre-event planning consultation to select the bourbon selections based on the Client’s preferences regarding brand preference, number of selections, and the available liquor budget.
  • Coordination of liquor procurement for your event
  • Customized tasting aids (e.g., flavor wheels, tasting mats, signage) for your event
  • Food pairing recommendations for your event’s bourbon selections (if applicable)
  • An entertaining bourbon expert to lead the tasting, provide education, and answer questions from your guests
  • Bragging rights for hosting the best event of the year


Food is not included in the cost of your bourbon tasting experience. We will provide basic food pairing recommendations, or for an additional fee, we will consult with your venue’s chef or catering staff to craft a one-of-a-kind menu paired to your event’s bourbons of choice.

Yes, all guests must be at least 21 years of age to attend a DrinkCurious Tasting Experience. It is the responsibility of the event host (you or your company) for confirming that all attendee’s are at least 21 years of age. DrinkCurious reserves the right to request proof of age for any guest that we feel may not meet the legal drinking age requirements.

Every state has a different set of laws addressing the purchase of vintage spirits. DrinkCurious will work within the laws of your event’s location to procure any bourbon you would like to include in your tasting. However, we do not guarantee our ability to locate and procure vintage, or allocated, bourbons on your behalf. Details related to this service will be discussed in advance and properly documented in our service contract for your review and approval. Please book your event a minimum of 3-months in advance if you’re interested in exploring adding vintage bourbons to your tasting.

The number of bourbon samples will vary according to your preferences and budget. DrinkCurious recommends that a tasting include at least four samples to provide an enjoyable experience for your guests. 

A typical in-person or virtual tasting experience will last about 60-90 minutes. This depends on tasting format, the group, their questions, and interaction with the host. If there is a strict time frame needed just let us know. We’ll be happy to customize the tasting experience to fit your needs.

Absolutely! We’ve never hosted a tasting experience that didn’t excite and delight the guests. That said, you obviously want to make sure that you guests drink alcohol and are open to trying new things – even if they’re not an active distilled spirits drinker.

DrinkCurious is based in St. Louis, MO but we have bourbon experts in select cities across the country. We regularly host tasting experiences across the United States, and internationally upon request. Depending on team availability within your location, additional costs for travel and lodging may apply.

An agreed upon event proposal along with a deposit of 50% of the tasting fee and 100% of liquor and travel expenses (if applicable) is required to book a date for your bourbon tasting event. Contact us to reserve a date for your very own tasting experience.
