Spirit World is the place for events related to wine and spirits. Please browse our calendar of events, and feel free to call us if you have any questions. In addition to the public events listed below, we are also available for private events such as wine tastings, beer tastings, bourbon tastings, scotch tastings...you get the picture!
Ever wondered what makes a Chilean Cabernet taste different than a Napa Cabernet? Or how they get those bubbles into a bottle of champagne? Look no further, we have the answers!
Spirit World is excited to announce that we will offer a series of Wine Classes this Spring! The classes will be offered in a series of 4 sessions on Sunday afternoons, and participants may purchase single sessions for $35 each or all 4 for $120. Here is the class schedule:
January 20 - Introduction to Wine
February 10 - Old School to New School
March 10 - The Transition: What's Next
April 14 - Best Kept Secrets
Classes will take place from 3:00 - 4:30 pm and will include formal, classroom-style instruction along with tasting samples. Information will be targeted to individuals with an interest in wine, but with limited knowledge and experience. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today! 402-391-8680.
Scotch Tasting Event - Friday, June 7th, 6-8pm
We have decided to take our typical Scotch Tasting and ramp it up a notch (or two). For this tasting, we will feature Highland Park 12 Yr, 15 Yr and 18 Yr Scotches, Scapa 16 Yr, Famous Grouse and Famous Grouse 18 Yr, and (drumroll, please... ) Highland Park Loki.
If you're not familiar with it, Loki is the second in the Valhalla Collection of four unique, limited edition single malt whiskies from Highland Park. Quantities are extremely limited, and Loki retails for $299.99. This is a unique opportunity to sample this very special Scotch! Tickets for this tasting are $40 per person or $35 for SLC members. Seats will be limited due to the rarity of the Loki sample, so please RSVP by calling 402-391-8680 to reserve a spot.
The idea behind these events is that we "wine/whiskey/etc geeks" have bottles squirreled away that we would love to share with someone who would appreciate it, but we are rarely in the appropriate company to break out the good stuff. So we gather our spirits lovin' friends together on a Sunday evening after the store is closed and each person brings a bottle (or a few bottles) to share with some fellow geeks who will appreciate the opportunity to try something special. Maybe it's something rare, maybe it's no longer available in our market, maybe it's something you've been saving to share with friends who will geek out over it as much as you do.
Our next share event is in the planning stages. There is no cost to attend, but everyone is asked to bring a special bottle you would like to share. We will limit attendance, so RSVP IS REQUIRED. Please call us (402-391-8680) or email lhellbusch@spiritworldwine .com to reserve your spot. We look forward to sharing something special with you!
