Join the Dakota County Historical Society and the LeDuc Historic Estate for our new tasting event! 

Humanity has a long history with alcohol starting around 7000-6600 BCE. During the Civil War alcohol was used for medicine, barter, and general consumption among all rank and file from top to bottom. This new tasting series will explore alcohol use during this time in American History and feature different types of liquor and beer. The event will feature a flight of the featured beverage, food from the era, and a presentation on the history that connects to it. 

Our first tasting will showcase different Bourbon, featuring Buffalo Trace, 4 Roses, Makers Mark, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam (bourbon's subject to change). 

Seating is limited to only 25, so call 651-438-8480 or register below to reserve your spot today.

This will be a recurring event, don't like the alcohol being served, check back for the next line-up!
