Aron Ritter started the Kosher Wine Society in 2005. KWS has, since then, risen to become synonymous with the best kosher wine workshops presenting potables from around the world, expert speakers and food and wine pairings.
I spoke to Aron Ritter, the Society’s President, this week. I found him very knowledgeable and with a tremendous ability to not take himself too seriously. So many wine experts these days consider themselves well above the average human, it’s refreshing to find one that is down to earth, one who just loves what he does without any pretentious airs.
This coming Tuesday, to celebrate Aron’s 30th birthday, the Society is having a tasting featuring three exclusive Single Malt Whiskeys and three Bourbons.

Most publications rave about Usquaebach whiskeys, I will have to taste and decide how well deserved their reputation may be. I’ve tasted Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon and find it surprisingly smooth for a bourbon. I can’t wait to wish Aron a Happy Birthday and enjoy the evening’s tastings. See you all there!
