Join LSU Alumni Beth Dantin Donner and Henry Peltier, owners of Donner-Peltier Distillers, for an evening of Louisiana distilled spirit tastings and hors d’oeuvres parings at the LSU Museum of Art. Hear about Louisiana-grown ingredients used in their products Oryza Vodka and Gin and newly released LA 1 Whiskey (long grain rice from Rayne) and Rougaroux Rums (raw sugar and molasses from Lafourche Sugar Mill). Donner will discuss the basic process of small-batch liquor production and share the Legend of the Rougaroux, the namesake of the company’s rum. In conjunction with the tasting, unique antique barware from the LSU Museum of Art Permanent Collection will be showcased and discussed.
