You pick the "experience" you want and buy admission, and the different experiences have to do with how many tastings you get, and of what. For example, my wife wanted to taste a shitload of wine, but I was more interested in doing some wine, some rum, some absinthe, etc.
Then, you go to little seminars on how to taste wine, champagne, whisky, etc. and they let you loose with your tasting tickets. Along the way, there's videos, demonstrations, and exhibits about the science and culture of alcohol. It's really a damn good time. There's also a restaurant and liquor store, but they're very pricey.
The best part is a lot of people don't use all their tickets. There were a couple of bachelorette parties there and they gave us their whisky-tasting tickets, so we got about 7 extra pours of single malt (think it was Glenfiddich).
Man, remembering all this really makes me want to go back!

cearly i'm doing it wrong. i thought it was about drinking around the world, boozing in the daylight, and it being socially acceptible to be drunk around your kid. ;)
