Paul’s Tastings

Paul’s Upcoming Tastings


In January 2018, Spirit Journal, Inc. launched The Brandy Authority program. Supported by 12 international brandy distiller members, THE BRANDY AUTHORITY provides unbiased, credible, and cutting-edge information about all brandy categories through its website (launching in early January), its WorkBook, and the six annual educational seminars directed to beverage trade and media audiences.

Paul is conducting 6 TBA in-depth seminars and blind tastings in 2018, and will clear the clouds of confusion about the brandy category while illustrating with clarity and humor why brandy deserves its status as one of the world’s most beloved distilled adult beverages.

Here are the locations for 6 events for 2018:
