 1923 Prohibition Bar, the classic speakeasy and bourbon bar behind the hidden bookcase, announces a new bourbon and whiskey tasting event for private or corporate groups. Located at Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip, expert instructors at 1923 Prohibition Bar offer a tempting way to learn about spirits, while entertaining and enlightening clients, employees, friends and family.

Each private bourbon and whiskey tasting includes a trained expert who teaches guests the difference between bourbon and whiskey, their history, the flavor profiles behind each brand, how to characterize their aromas and appearances, along with stories of Prohibition.

With three types of tasting events provided, each group will sample one specialty cocktail and four bourbon or whiskey samples. The Standard tasting is $45 per person and offers Bulleit, Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek Rye and Four Roses Yellow Label. The Elite tasting is $55 per person and offers small batches, including Smoke Wagon, Basil Hayden, Elijah Craig Small Batch and Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye. The Vault tasting is $65 and includes rare labels such as Blantons, Horse Soldier, Little Book Chapter 4 and Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea. All bourbon and whiskey brands are based on availability and subject to change.

Guests who wish to have a tasting experience without an instructor may walk in anytime and sample today’s most popular brands of bourbon at the bar top at 1923 Prohibition Bar. The experience offers a Bourbon Flight for $32, including Buffalo Trace, Bulleit, Angel’s Envy and Angel’s Envy Rye. Tasting points and flavor profiles are provided.

“Our bourbon and whiskey tasting events are perfect for bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations and corporate team building activities,” said Noel Bowman, owner, 1923 Prohibition Bar. “We offer so many different brands of bourbon and whiskey, we know you’ll learn a lot and have a ton of fun.”
