Guests at a Jack Daniels tasting at Selden Standard on Wednesday learned the right way to taste whiskey and tried different pours and cocktails with food pairings from the award-winning restaurant. 

Selden Standard Chef Andy Hollyday was named a semifinalist for best chef in the Great Lakes region in the prestigious James Beard Awards this year, and the Midtown spot was also named 2016 Restaurant of the Year by Hour Detroit.
