Single Malt Murder Mystery - Whiskey Tasting Event at The Reservoir

Single Malt Murder Mystery - Whiskey Tasting Event at The Reservoir benefiting Blessons for Women!


It is 1936, Prohibition is over, FDR's New Deal is providing jobs for the millions of unemployed, Jazz and Swing music is all the rage, people flock to the theaters for the "golden age" of Hollywood and at an Uptown Chicago watering hole, serving Giggle Juice (Whiskey) there's a murderer lurking. David Lynch, the GM of Reservoir, discovers the body of a distillery owner behind the Reservoir. Distilling truth from lies is tricky, especially when everyone seems to have something to hide. Taste whiskey, collect clues, solve a murder and win a prize!

Whiskeys: Old Elk Whiskey Distillery (Fort Collins, Colorado). More distillers to be announced.

Entry Fee: $20 for the tasting (pay at the door). You will also get a raffle ticket with your entry fee.

EXTRA Ways to Win!

  • Taste fine whiskeys!

  • Solve the Murder Mystery and win a prize!

  • Dress in a 1930s swanky outfit and win a prize!

**All entry fees and extra raffle ticket purchases benefit Blessons.
