October 4th - 5th
A weekend of all things whiskey! We are excited to partner with Maker’s Mark® to celebrate the craftsmanship of one of the finest whiskey distilleries in the world. Experience classes taught by industry insiders, master distillers and lakeside tastings of the finest whiskey, all combined with gorgeous North Idaho lake views.
Our talented Beverage Team ventured to Kentucky this past May for a private Maker’s Mark® Distillery Tour & Tasting. Maker’s Mark® does a lot of things the old-fashioned way, and hospitality is certainly one of them. After a weekend full of sipping, smelling and sipping some more, we have proudly created a custom Whiskey blend unique to The Coeur d’Alene Resort.
Big versus subtle; dry versus sweet; austere versus rich. Taste all of the varying flavors to please your whiskey palate at our exclusive Whiskey Barrel Weekend. Event tickets start at only *$35 per person.
