Event website

Experience the funny side of whiskey, with industry icon ‘Robin Robinson’ on January 16th 2019 at the Independent Ice Co in the Old Port!

Robin Robinson’s show; ‘The Story of Whiskey’ is a: whiskey tasting/story telling/comedy, trifecta! The hour-long show follows an optional cocktail hour and appetizers.

The Story of Whiskey! Billed as “60 minutes of bad stand-up comedy punctuated by drinking”, has played packed rooms at whiskey events around the country: WhiskeyLive, to Whiskies of the World; from LA, to Minneapolis, to Houston. This year, the show is coming to Maine!

In this hybrid one-man show and whiskey tasting, whiskey educator and consultant Robin Robinson takes us through the entire story of whiskey, in one rapid-fire, crazy narrative that brings in the history of distillation, the role of the monks and alchemists, farmers and taxmen, Scottish lords and Appalachian hillbillies. From grains to glasses, Ireland to Scotland, Japan to Kentucky to Ontario and out to the rest of the world, whiskey is more than the sum of its parts and Robinson dares you to come along for the ride of your life. Hold on to your (gl)asses!
