What is the difference between a French oak, Quercus robur and a White oak, Quercus alba, when it come to aging wine or distilling whiskey? How do oaks add flavors such as vanilla, toast and butter to wine or whiskey? Learn how winemakers and whiskey distillers use scientific processes such as evaporation and oxygenation to create unique, distinct flavors. Sample fine wines, sip some whiskeys and join the conversation as we unravel the mysteries of oaks, whiskeys and wine.
