We recently set a lofty goal for ourselves – double the size of our whiskey selection for the fall/winter seasons. The task wasn’t easy but we were determined. Grueling hours tasting through whiskey after whiskey – deliciously sweet bourbons, spicy ryes, smoldering single malts, experimental blends, and mind bending moonshines. Once the smoke cleared and we had whittled the list down to our favorites, our selection of domestic and imported whiskeys had increased twofold.
To celebrate this new plethora of goodies, we have six whiskey-themed events planned throughout October and November, including two visits from local distilleries and a tasting/discussion hosted by local author and whiskey aficionado Clay Risen. We’re kicking off the fun this Friday with a tasting of two single malts from Scotland and two New York ryes. Explore our expanded selection here and here and see our listing of upcoming whiskey events below.
