Cheese & Spirits Pairing

Spirits of Discovery Series!

Pairing Experience: J.Carver Distillery & Caves of Faribault

Thursday, January 31, 6:30-8:30 (doors open 6p)

$25 registration includes samples of all cheeses, spirits, and cocktails, plus a $5 discount toward any J.Carver 375ml bottle of spirits.


After a wildly successful Cheese & Cocktails Pairing Experience at Kowalski's, we're bringing this experience home to you. Fromagier Reuben Nilsson from historical Caves of Faribault and J.Carver's resident sommelier and mixologist Gina Holman will lead this exploration of beautiful Minnesota-made cheeses and spirits. While you're indulging, Reuben and Gina will be storytelling while imparting their expertise, covering history of Minnesota cheesemaking, geography and terroir, the arts of cheesemaking and distillation.
