LSU Alumni Beth Donner and Henry Peltier, owners of Donner-Peltier Distillers, are coming to the LSU Museum of Art in Baton Rouge for an evening of Louisiana distilled spirit tastings and hors d’oeuvres parings from Stroubes Seafood and Steaks! You'll be able to hear about Louisiana-grown ingredients used in their products like the long grain rice from the Crowley and Rayne area used in their Oryza Vodka and Gin and newly released LA 1 Whiskey, and the raw sugar and molasses from the Lafourche Sugar Mill used in their Rougaroux line of rums. Beth Donner will discuss the basic process of small-batch liquor production and share the Legend of the Rougaroux, the namesake of the company’s rum. In conjunction with the tasting, unique antique barware from the LSU Museum of Art Permanent Collection will be showcased and discussed.

Being a fan of both education and booze, this is the kind of "lecture series" that I can really get behind! Not to mention that the tastings and food pairings from Stroubes are included in the price of admission!
