"Shots Of Knowledge - The Science of Whiskey"

A presentation & Lunch Tasting with

TX Whiskey's Rob Arnold,  TCU Prof. Eric Simanek

& TCU Sr. Assoc. Dean Dr. Magnus Rittby

Authors of the book, and collaborators in creating whiskey magic, Eric & Rob offer us the inside scoop on the "art & science of whiskey creation", way beyond the usual brand marketing of most tasting events, we'll hear about the molecular level  interactions  between biology and chemistry, chains & reactions!

          "The transformation of grain to whiskey is a craft rooted in scientific and historical synergies. However, all too often, whiskey marketing and advertising only allow for a very superficial explanation of how whiskey is made. In their book Shots of Knowledge: The Science of Whiskey, Eric Simanek (Chair of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at TCU) and Rob Arnold (Head Distiller at Firestone & Robertson Distillery) divulge the details behind the art and science of whiskey creation. On May 20th for World Whiskey Day, the authors will provide us with a presentation inspired by their book, which will be followed by a lunch and whiskey tasting at the Pub."

      "Our lecture will cover familiar topics such as grains, yeasts, copper stills, and oak barrels, but the journey across these topics will be quite novel. The story starts at a common beginning and travels to the mysterious worlds of sunlight, molecules, and enzymes. We’ll traverse the starchy realm of the grain seed, the sugary ocean of a mash, and the ethanol-rich domain of a beer fermentation.


      From there, we’ll investigate how copper and distillation turn beer into white dog; and then we’ll witness a metamorphosis in oak that has no rival—that of white dog becoming whiskey.


      The finale will reveal how congeners—those chemical compounds that arise during the whiskey making process—dance on our sensory receptors to elicit flavor. The last world we visit will be that of the future, as we consider what new ideas and technologies will propel whiskey into the next age!"
