Event description

Description

Join us for a lecture and tasting of two or more whiskies based on Thad Vogler’s memoir, By the Smoke & the Smell: My Search for the Rare and Sublime on the Spirits Trail.

In this spirit-filled memoir, Thad Vogler distills a world of vivid characters who produce hand-made rum, scotch, cognac and mezcal. From the mountains of Mexico and the forbidden distilleries of Havana to the wilds of Scotland and the pastoral corners of France and beyond, Vogler’s memories will change how you think when you drink. During the event, Vogler will read from the Scotland or Ireland portion of the book.




Tickets for the tasting, talk and signing are $15. You can pre-order her book for an additional $23.81 (20% discount + sales tax); it will also be available for sale on the day of the event at full price.


Refund/cancellation policy: A full refund will be provided for cancellations requests received from customers up to one week (seven days) before the event. No refund or store credit will be provided for cancellation requests received less than a week before the event.
