What you'll do

We keep you safe with plenty of social distancing!

This is both a walking and tasting tour. We start this 90 minute experience outside learning Utah's distillation history from the mid 1800's to present day.

Then, we adjourn inside to our tasting table with plenty of room and outline the top Utah spirit distillers and taste four samples of local Whiskey!

The experience continues as we venture outside for a 1.25 mile / 8 block walking tour of downtown Salt Lake City, where we show you the sights of its vast whiskey history, and finish at Salt Lake's hottest pub with a final tasting of local Whiskey!

Please note; final location subject to either group size, or local guidelines as set forth of Covid-19 rules.

Snow, rain, shine, Covid-19 or Protests, you'll be rewarded from beginning to end!

I love to talk and teach about whiskey! Not only do I personally guide trips to Scotland each year, but also host dozens of whiskey tasting events in Salt Lake City. What better way to learn about Salt Lake's local whiskey history than to walk and taste it!

Where you'll be

You see the inside and underbelly of Salt Lake; from the first Social Hall to the secret entrance of the exclusive Alta Club to who owned the first distillery and where whiskey was first sold in the 1800's! And, take a trip down Commerce Ave, formerly the 'red light' district!

We had a great on the Whiskey and History tour. We learned a lot that we didn’t know about the area and Jim was a terrific host through our whiskey tasting and walking tour. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone with a passion for whiskey and history!

Jim was incredible! He is super knowledgeable and is great at conversing and answering questions about every kind of alcohol and the history of Utah/SLC. And he's super funny! And friendly! We got solid pours and he even bought us a drink at a local pub- all while learning and walking through the historical part of SLC. Would gladly do it again!

Jimmy went above and beyond. He was passionate about the history of SLC all things whiskey and the history of Utah. He was delightful and animated and so fun to be with. My friend and I went together and couldn't stop talking about the experience for days afterward. My friend who is from the UK found it fascinating and such a wonderful experience. I have lived in Utah for most of my life and learned so many interesting things I never knew. I highly recommend for those who live in Utah and want to learn a few new things and for those who are in town and want a unique and fun experience. Thanks Jimmy!

Jim made the experience educational and fun. We would absolutely do it again next time we are in Salt Lake and would recommend it to anyone who likes history, whiskey, or both!
