Try Unique Whisky
The world of whisky is ever expanding.  Yet most of the exciting whisky will never make it to Bakersfield.  We believe that Bakersfield deserves good whisky too!  Thats why each event features 5 or more unique whiskies for you to try.
Join Our Community
Our members tell us the best part of the society is making new friends and exploring new venues in town.  We love to partner with local Bakersfield establishments to bring you the best of Bakersfield and love making new whisky friends.
Learn From Experts
Whisky can be intimidating.  Thats why we believe in education.  Not stuffy stuck in a class education, but education from whisky experts.  So come, drink unique whiskies, ask questions of brand ambasadors, and meet some of the leading names in whisky.

What People are Saying about the Bakersfield Whisky Society
I love being with great people and learning about whisky.  It's a chance to get out and taste whisky that we normally do not get a chance to try.

The Bakersfield Whisky Society gives me a chance to drink whisky that you usually can't find elsewhere.  If you are thinking about attending a masterclass, do it!

I have a lot of fun, get to drink a wide variety of whisky that I can't afford on my own, make new friends, and learn what I like and why I like it.
