Virtual Whiskey Education and Tasting Parties
Greetings from the team at Wanderback Whiskey! As a boutique distillery located on our family farm in Hood River, Oregon, we are passionate about making one-of-a-kind, limited edition collections of American single malt whiskeys.
We know that nights out just aren’t what they used to be and we’re here to help change that! Our virtual whiskey education and tasting parties are perfect for virtual happy hours, team building events, birthday parties, or just a good excuse to get your best mates together.
Whatever the occasion, we invite you to purchase our Whiskey Flight and Virtual Whiskey Tasting Box. This contains two-2 oz. bottles of our limited edition whiskeys and gives you access to an hour long virtual tasting party.
During the Wanderback Whiskey virtual education and tasting party you will explore our limited edition whiskeys (and maybe find a favorite), learn more about American single malts and discover Wanderback’s unique philosophy and process.
You can sign up for a pre-scheduled party (available Monday through Sunday 1pm – 8pm PST) OR bring your best crew together for your own private party!* To ship to a single address, simply purchase your Whiskey Flight and Tasting Boxes here, then email email@example.com to request your date.
UPDATE: we are finished doing virtual tastings for the season. Please contact us if you are interested in a potential tasting in 2021. We’ll be in touch in the New Year with more information.

Q: What will happen during the At Home Virtual Whiskey Tasting Party?
A: We’ll set up a zoom call for you and your guests. After you’ve had a chance to catch up, we’ll host a 30 minute tasting of all three Batches of our limited-edition single malt whiskeys. It’s super interactive with everyone participating and sharing their own tasting notes. We will also share and answer any questions your guests have about Wanderback, American single malt, etc etc.
Q: What are my responsibilities as a host?
A: As the host you will decide who you’d like to be in your virtual whiskey tasting party and how your group will sample our tasting flight. Complete the form above so we can tailor the experience to your group.
Q: What do we need to have an at home Virtual Whiskey Tasting Party?
A: All you need is a minimum of four guests, access to Wanderback Batch No. 1, 2 and 3 (we’ll help you with 50ml samples or go big with full size bottles) and an internet connection for Zoom.
Q: What’s the Difference between a Sample Bottle and a Standard Bottle Party?
A: In a Sample Bottle Party, guests pour from 50ml bottles. In a Standard Bottle Party guests pour from 750ml full size bottles of Wanderback. In each case guests have Batch No.1, 2 and 3 to taste.
Q: Some guests already have Wanderback in their home bar, can we mix and match?
A: Of course, as long as each guest has access to Batch No.1, 2 and 3 we are good to go!
Q: I need to purchase Wanderback whiskey for the party, how do I do that?
Once we receive your completed host form, we’ll let you know your nearest retailer. You can also purchase all three bottles (at a great discount) online here.
Q: I already own all three limited-editions of Wanderback. Can I still host a party?
A: That’s awesome. Yes, you can purchase our branded sample bottle kits and distribute these to your guests.
Q: What’s in a Wanderback Sample Bottle Kit?
A: Sample bottle kits consist of three 50ml branded sample bottles (one for each batch), a decanting funnel, tasting cards and Wanderback gift packaging and cost $5 per guest.
Q: How many samples can come from a standard bottle of Wanderback?
A: Each 750ml bottle yields 15 samples – enough for 15 guests
Q: Who is responsible for filling the 50ml sample bottles for my guests?
A: You can or we can. You decide. Select self fulfillment to have sample bottle kits shipped to your home: you fill the bottles and drop off the gift boxes to your guests. Select full service to have your sample kits fulfilled and delivered to your guests by us.
Q: What’s the difference in price of self fulfillment and full service?
A: For self fulfillment you only pay for the sample bottle kits plus shipping to your home. There is an additional charge for full service of $5 per guest.
Q: So what’s the investment if I host a party for 8?
A: It depends! Let’s assume you are purchasing all three Batches of Wanderback and opting to host a sample bottle party. Costs for you (or split amongst your group would be:
- 3 x 750ml bottles of Wanderback = $170 including shipping
- 8 sample bottle kits @ $5 = $40 including shipping
- Self fulfillment = $0 plus shipping
- TOTAL $210 ($26.25 per guest)
Q: I’m interested in learning more. What should I do?
A: Complete the Host Form so that we tailor your party to meet your needs and can get an accurate cost estimate to you.
Q: Is there a special gift for being a host?
