What Our Clients Are Saying:


“We wanted to thank you for guiding the whisky tasting last week – you were terrific!  Everyone had a blast and learned so much about American whisky.  I have received a ton of feedback from clients and friends that it was the best virtual event they have participated in during Covid and that is saying something!”

“In the last quarter of 2020 I’ve hosted 180 guests over seven events with Peggy Stevens, discussing bourbon and engaging our clients in a way we have not achieved with any of our other remote events. Our event series with Peggy was a complete success, garnering us goodwill and visibility at management levels previously unreachable!!”

“Peggy is an excellent presenter, comfortable with a mix of attendees ranging from billionaire CEO’s to engineers, wives and friends. She was consistently able to draw people into conversations about bourbon and pique their interest in the culture surrounding bourbon.”

“Peggy has a deep and vast knowledge of all aspects of bourbon and her enthusiasm for the industry carries into her presentations, where she adeptly handled every question she was asked. We had many attendees who had no experience with bourbon before our event and their feedback was always a surprised “I never thought I’d like bourbon until we did this event with Peggy!”

“Peggy is a bourbon ambassador, making bourbon approachable to everyone (and sharing some inside stories along the way about her unique experiences as a master taster). I would highly recommend her as a speaker for any event and any group, her charm and disposition make her courses the ideal event choice if you want to do something different and special for your customers. P.S. For a few smiles, ask her how many bars she has in her house!”


Available for both virtual and in-person events.
