We are delighted to welcome you back to this in person event in Saratoga Springs!

Journalist and flavor expert Mandy Naglich will join Northshire and First Fill Spirits to present a whiskey tasting and workshop on creating your own perfect flavor pairings. Naglich will guide the group through traditional flavor interactions as we sample drinks and snacks and learn that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to flavor.

Tickets for this event include a tasting with three hand-selected whiskeys and an assortment of snacks to pair them with, as well as the author workshop and a copy of How to Taste: A Guide to Discovering Flavor and Savoring Life.

Perfect for foodie fans of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat as well as Cork Dork and The Flavor Equation, this instant classic is both a sumptuous behind-the-scenes tour and a fun, appetizing, and informative how-to that covers everything from wine and cheese to ice cream and honey, tea, chocolate, and even water, from the science of taste and the rituals of creating a fine-tuned palate, to plucking flavor descriptions from the tip of your tongue, and learning how appreciating food can help you appreciate life.

You love to eat. But do you know how to taste?

On a delectable sensory romp through the science of flavor, award-winning professional taster Mandy Naglich, one of less than 100 Advanced Cicerones in the world, gives you a seat at the table in the elite world of master tasters – scientists, professional tasters, sommeliers, umami ushers and more – divulging the secrets behind their perfected palates so you, too, can become a super taster.
