In this class we will explore Sierra Norte Black, White, and Yellow. All three whiskeys featured in this class are made with non-GMO corn, distilled separately and matured in French Oak casks to showcase each whiskies' individual character and nuance.

Sierra Norte's Oaxacan Corn Whiskey Class

All Sierra Norte whiskies are made from ancestral heirloom corn grown by traditional Oaxacan farmers. Descendants of the region’s first farmers continue replanting the best seeds from each harvest, as they and their ancestors have done for over 7,000 years. The whiskies in this collection are truly spectacular! In 2018 Sierra Norte was featured as one of Forbes Magazine's Top Non-American Whiskies Of The Year. Sierra Norte Yellow was also named one of Whisky Advocate's Top 20 Whiskeys of 2018!
