Virtual Social Events: Bourbon Tasting

The MATT conference is not the only thing going virtual! Join Lipomed for a Thursday night, (April 29, 2021) virtual Bourbon Tasting experience led by a certified bourbon expert. Once signed up, Lipomed will provide a three-glass tasting tray to each participant and a list of bourbon options. Unfortunately, we cannot provide the bourbon; however, you will be able to pick these options up at your local liquor store.

During the tasting, our Bourbon expert will guide you through the flavor profile of each bourbon and explain the science behind the distillation process. After each tasting, you will be asked for your opinion, so be prepared to sip and answer! Although we would have wished to see all of your faces in Kentucky, we hope to bring Kentucky to your home wherever you may be through attending this event.

Contact us at to receive a form to sign up! The admission to the event is included with your conference registration, but a collectable bourbon tasting tray is available to all participants for $30, payable by Venmo. Please sign up before April 9th so that we can send you the tasting tray along with the details before the festivities begin. Get three different bourbons and be ready for some fun!

Please mark your calendar for this excellent continuing education and networking opportunity!
