Trey Zoller | Jefferson's BourbonWe’re beyond thrilled that Trey Zoeller, Jefferson’s founder and master blender, will be joining us for the evening.  Trey will provide us with background on this family’s long history in the bourbon industry, lead us in a tasting of the evenings selections and answer all of your bourbon questions.  It’s a rare opportunity to spend the evening with a true bourbon innovator (read about his latest innovation Jefferson’s Ocean-Aged Bourbon) and learn more about his approach to creating some amazing “ridiculously small batch” bourbons.

In addition to enjoying some great company, enjoying amazing food and sipping on fantastic bourbon you’ll be helping others by attending the Jefferson’s Bourbon Dinner & Tasting. Profits from the event will be donated to a charity of Trey’s choice.

The evening will begin with a specially crafted bourbon cocktail and appetizers at 6:30 pm in the Bourbon Lounge – a venue within Glen Echo created especially for our event.  At 7:15 pm dinner will begin with an introductory overview from Trey and our first bourbon tasting of the evening. From there we will enjoy a new bourbon with each dinner course along with tasting notes and comments from Trey.

After dinner we invite you to stick around and enjoy a drink in the Bourbon Lounge and continue the evening’s enjoyment of bourbon and banter. You will be able to order drinks from the Club’s bar throughout the night. (Please note that cash is required for additional drink purchase or your can put it on your account if you belong to a reciprocal club. The Club does not accept credit cards.)

Did you know that Glen Echo Country Club was founded in 1901 making it the oldest 18-hole golf course west of the Mississippi?  It’s also the only place that’s held an Olympic golf match, earning that honor in 1904.  In fact, you can see the Olympic flag and torch as you approach the front entry of the clubhouse. For those of you interested in learning more about Glen Echo Country Club here’s a brief video that should be of interest.
