Don’t like wine? Don’t worry. Syrah offers spirit tastings! Both of our sommeliers are certified mixologists and give the same outrageous and unexpected atmosphere to spirit tastings that have made our wine tastings so popular. Don’t just taste the spirits, live them! We offer tastings in tequila, scotch, whiskey, vodka and gin. Pick one spirit and taste 3 different styles (with food pairings, of course!) or choose 3 different spirits and do a mixed tasting. Spirit tastings are $45 per person plus tax and gratuity for 3 tastings…or if you are serious about your spirits, up the ante and do a 4 spirit tasting with 4 pairings for $55 per person plus tax and gratuity.
