Otto, a self-anointed bourbon expert, will explain the nuances from a selection of five tastings. The master of ceremonies will be Mark Twain, sharing his wit and wisdom.

The evening includes music, hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, tastings and a live auction. A total of 13 to 15 specialty and rare bottles of bourbon will be auctioned off.

Spirits and Sarcasm is a fundraiser for The Mark Twain Home Foundation. Tickets are $50 per person and available at the Mark Twain Museum Gift Shop on the corner of N. Main and Center in downtown Hannibal. Cost for a reserved table for eight is $500.
