Our story


The Whiskey Librarysm was founded in 2014 by two friends, Brian Thompson and Tim Moll, to share their love of whiskey through education.

The Whiskey Librarysm hosts educational whiskey and food pairing events at bars, clubs, and private residences around the DC area. By creating fun and engaging educational presentations we seek to help both novices and experts enjoy a variety of unique whiskeys and to impart a better understanding of whiskey and its history to their guests.

We look forward to having you at one of our tasting events in the DC Metro Area, hosting an event at your house, or simply helping you start or grow your own collection and knowledge!



Whether you are just curious about whiskey or already love it, our exciting and engaging seminars and tastings are for you. These events feature great whiskey, paired with fun and engaging discussions about the history or lure surrounding this great spirit. Not only will you walk away having tried some amazing whiskey, but also a better understanding and appreciation, and therefore better enjoyment of whiskey. Sign up today to learn about our upcoming events. 


Whiskey is sometimes best enjoyed with friends and family in intimate settings. Let us work with you to personalize a tasting or whiskey line-up that will make your next party or corporate gathering stand out. 


We are in the golden age of whiskey and everyone wants to try something new and exciting. Whether you have dozens of whiskeys or just a few bottles, we will help you focus your collections and work with your kitchen to design menus and food pairings. Let us help you create something great for your customers. 


Whether you’ve just got into enjoying whiskey or are looking to add to your already established stock, we will work with you in creating a unique and exciting collection. Let us help you find your next favorite bottle and expand your bar. 



Tim Moll, Founder & Chief Scotch Whisky Officer

As one who is passionate about Scottish single malts, Tim Moll helps both novices and experts more deeply understand the flavors and histories of these beautiful whiskies by leading educational pairing events around the D.C. metro area. When he’s not hunting down a rare scotch you can find him buried in a book with an interesting dram of whisky by his side.

Brian Thompson, Founder & Chief American Whiskey Officer

Based in Washington, D.C., Brian Thompson works to share his knowledge and love of American whiskeys through educational tastings. If he isn’t sampling something new or working with clients to help them stock their private collections, he’s probably sitting by a fire with a few open bottles telling stories.
