IN-STORE TASTINGS

We’re all for education, so here at Cask we like to throw weekly public tastings to introduce our customers to new products. We host representatives of different brands to come to our stores to pour tastes and talk about the production and origin of their wares. During these little events, we’ve tasted everything from Islay Scotch and Japanese Whisky to California gin and Kentucky Bourbon. This is a chance to get to know a product you already love better or to learn something new. The best part is that it’s free! We update this page regularly with the tastings for the week so stay tuned!

3rd St Tastings
17 3rd St | San Francisco

BarMatt Gin and Amaro (new!)
Thursday 4/19 | 4-6pm

BarMatt bitters and spirits was created with a passion for the age-old trade of cocktail mastery. What originally started as a social conversation within the walls of a tiny San Francisco apartment flourished into a unique line of speciality products. Matt Pennington crafts his spirits starting with a grape based distillate, and uses absolutely no dyes, food coloring, or artificial flavoring. Matt himself will be pouring his lemongrass driven gin and delightfully bitter and spicy amaro.

Do Good Distilling
Friday 4/20 | 4-7pm

Postpone your 4/20 festivities and kick off the weekend with some California whiskey. Do Good is a grain to glass company, meaning they do everything themselves, from milling the grain to distilling the fermented mash. You won’t find any sourced stuff at their warehouses. The whiskeys offer something for the more adventurous palate, so come on by and taste their Beechwood smoked whiskey, hopped whiskey, and California wheated bourbon.

Rincon Tastings
101 Spear St Suite A4 | San Francisco

Spirit Works
Thursday 4/19 | 4-6pm

Husband and wife team Timo and Ashby have been making some amazing spirits in Sonoma these last few years. Their growing line of spirits now includes several whiskeys and a barrel aged sloe gin. We’ll be showcasing their core line of vodka, gin, and sloe gin.

High West Whiskey
Friday 4/20 | 4-6pm

Whiskey from...Utah! Yep, that one still turns heads. It’s also one of our favorite single barrel selections every year, as there’s always something new and exciting to choose from. This year we picked the Double Rye that was finished for 8 months in barrels previously used to age the cult favorite, Midwinter Night’s Dram. We’ll also be pouring their flagship American Prairie Bourbon and the smokey Campfire.

College Ave Tastings
3185 College Avenue | Rockridge, Oakland

1792 Whiskey
Friday 4/20 | 4-7pm

One of our favorite underdog bourbons that should be a home bar staple for brown liquor tipplers, 1792 quietly releases a number of special barrels each year that are made and priced for drinking, not collecting. We’ll be pouring their flagship Small Batch, Single Barrel, and newly released Bottle in Bond. Stay tuned, we’ll have our own cask barrel of small batch soon.
