Whiskey 101 at Native Hostel


Whiskey 101 at Native Hostel


We are teaming up with Nine Banded Whiskey and Native Hostels to turn Native’s upstairs Romper Room into an interactive + intimate whiskey experience!

This introductory shindig will feature three types of whiskey for our guests to taste — followed by a creative cocktail 101 where guests will get to create their own cocktails based on the customized curriculum.

As always, we will be providing the best bar tools for guests to use during the workshop, as well as light bites to nibble on throughout the evening. All of our guests will leave with a foundation in whiskeys, as well as recipes and a list of bar tools needed in order to keep the party going at home!

This event is open to 21 and up only and all guests must drink responsibly! Tickets are $60/person. Our last several workshops have sold out, so head on over to the ticket link below and reserve your spot now!

**Tickets are non-transferable. No refunds will be issued unless the event is cancelled.**

About Nine Banded Whiskey:
Nine Banded Whiskey is a creative blend of three year old, oak barrel aged whiskey distilled with the purest water out of Texas Hill Country. They gather the perfect mixture of whiskeys and smoothed it out with Texas’ finest limestone filtered water. It’s got one hell of a kick sitting at 90 proof, but it is as clean as can be. With a subtle bite and a smooth finish, they are the whiskey for Austin, Texas.

About Native Hostels:
Native is for the seekers. The curious ones, filled with youthful wanderlust. Explorers who know that possessions are fleeting, but experiences last a lifetime. This upscale hostel is conveniently located off I-35, 2 miles from both Lady Bird Lake and the stately marble/granite Texas State Capitol building. Featuring exposed beams or brick accent walls, the hip mixed-gender and female-only dorms with an industrial vibe offer free Wi-Fi, lockers, and shared bathrooms with marble countertops. Private rooms with en suite facilities, including a loft suite sleeping up to 6, are also available. Amenities consist of a trendy coffee shop/bar, and a restaurant with terrace dining. Communal areas include a kitchenette, and living spaces with plush sofas.



Whiskey 101 Recap

Well, well, well.  Who knew whiskey (whisky, whiskeys, whiskies) could be so much fun?  We always have a blast organizing cocktail workshops, but it was real treat participating as a newbie.

On July 30, She + Him Bartending showed up and showed out for our first workshop at the studio. The dynamic duo walked the whiskey curious through a history lesson on bourbon, scotch and rye, followed by a tasting of each.

Afterwards, we did our best bartender impressions and made a cocktail with each whiskey type using professional bar tools.

Let's just say the weekend was a success.  We had a great time meeting new people, and can't wait to do it all over again.  Stay tuned and thirsty, my friends!
