Ok. We're not solving the big issues of our time here. We're drinking whiskey.
And it should be fun.
But so should learning about whiskey: Bourbon, Japanese, Scotch, Irish, world whiskies, craft whiskies. The whole deal, no matter from where and when.
And Whiskey-Tainment! is focused on having a good time:
Sales trainings and team acknowledgements
Client retention and acquisition events
Curating your private whiskey collections or bar inventory
The Story of Whiskey is now LIVE!!!!!
In this hybrid one-man show and whiskey tasting, whiskey educator and consultant Robin Robinson takes us through the entire story of whiskey in one rapid-fire, crazy narrative that brings in the history of distillation, the role of the monks and alchemists, farmers and taxmen, Scottish lords and Appalachian hillbillies. From grains to glasses, Ireland to Scotland, Japan to Kentucky to Ontario and out to the rest of the world, whiskey is more than the sum of its parts and Robinson dares you to come along for the ride of your life. Hold on to your (gl)asses!

Here's a sample: After Hurricane Sandy devastated the areas around New York and New Jersey, I called out to all the other whiskey purveyors doing business in the New York area and in 3 weeks, organized the Whiskey Auction. We raised over $19,000 in one night:

Then there was that time when John Glaser from Compass Box wanted to set something on fire to celebrate the launch of his new whisky, Flaming Heart. So we did...
Robin Robinson presented an interactive and highly entertaining seminar to our clients! I also was impressed by his attention to detail. He went above and beyond by helping us with customized place mats, rental and refreshment suggestions. He helped us transform our conference room into a proper class room. Client feedback has been extremely positive. We would look to work with him on future client events.

Robin was an outstanding host for the tasting. He was informative, enlightening, and knowledgeable. His skills as a presenter are top rate. At the end of the hour, one of the bagpipers stood up in full regalia and told Robin that of all of the tastings done at Mohonk House (from very popular names) he was by far the best.
