“Old Fashion” Making Class

The “Old Fashion” is one of the most well known cocktails. It has been around since the 1880’s and can be made with Bourbon or Rye whiskey. Tobacco Barn Distillery will bring this unique offering to Susannah’s Watch for a tasting and demonstration, then you make your own special style of “Old Fashion.” As the original whiskey cocktail, the Old Fashioned has seen a significant resurgence in popularity in recent years. Create your own favorite with either Bourbon or Rye Whiskey. Always with a Luxardo cherry!

Bourbon & Cigars

A Bourbon & Cigar bar is the perfect sophisticated activity to enjoy at a historic estate. Whether you’re a Bourbon & cigar enthusiast or a total novice, this is a great way to spend an evening. This unique opportunity gives Susannah’s Watch guests a chance to try something new and get outside of their comfort zone, for those folks who have enjoyed cigars in the past, it’s an even more attractive addition. We feature Tobacco Barn Distillery Bourbon and Rye Whiskey as well as a selection of premium Perdomo cigars.
