It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere with Matt Jones & Jeffrey Van Horne
They’re back! Our resident mixologists Jeff Van Horne (Lot Six Bar & Restaurant) and Matt Jones (Whisky Ambassador, Beam Suntory) are totally pumped to take you on a boozy tour through the wild world of cocktails. Disclaimer: last year’s workshop attendees left with rosy cheeks all a buzz. Know what we’re saying? Ssshhhh… it’s five o’clock somewhere.
Note: This activity is restricted to 19 years of age and older.
Both bartending nerd and whisk(e)y geek, Matt has been working within the beverage alcohol industry for 16 years. He has trained bartenders around the world in product knowledge and bar technique for over a decade. Also known as @Whisky_Chef, Matt continues to share his love of classic cocktails and culinary applications of whisk(e)y.
In 2010, he accepted his favourite role to date: Beam Suntory’s Whisk(e)y Ambassador to Canada, traveling the country coast to coast preaching the gospel of whisk(e)y. Specializing in Bourbon, Matt also speaks to over 25 whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and USA. Did we mention he is also one of our resident festival mixologists?
Jeff Van Horne – coming soon!
