Maker’s Mark Dinner at El Gaucho Tacoma

Dave Kearns, Maker’s Mark Diplomat, led guests through the evening’s pairings and the perfect experience to celebrate Bourbon-loving dads. The event included a five-course tasting menu featuring a special selection of bourbon from Makers Mark. The rare opportunity included their Flagship, Cask Strength, No. 46 French Oaked and limited release Wood Finished Series, as well as the star of the show, the Revelers Club Volume 6: Signature Makers Mark Select. Our culinary team created an exceptional pairing menu to highlight these special pours.
