Ciroc Vodka ambassador, Rich Dollaz is stopping by Binny’s in Evergreen Park for a bottle signing to celebrate 79 Gold, a spirit with balanced hints of nuts, vanilla and loads of caramel. This is Rich Dollaz first foray into the world of spirits. It makes for an excellent cocktail spirit. (See examples below) Mr. Dollaz is known for his role on VH1′s Love and Hip Hop.
Binny’s is excited to join beer enthusiasts across Chicago in celebrating Chicago Craft Beer Week. We’re joined by old favorites including Deschutes and Central Waters, new friends like Vancouver’s Parallel 49, and more! Dates and times after the jump.
Last night, Binny’s hosted World of Whiskies 2014, the best whiskey event of the year, and it was a bigger success than ever. You know the story: we get a bunch of the most innovative and exciting spirits producers (no, it’s not just whiskey) together under one roof to show their latest and greatest.
One very special feature of last night’s event was the release of Four Kings Bourbon. You’ve heard of it, right? It’s a collaborative bottling from Few, MRDC, Journeyman and Corsair. This limited edition whiskey is only available at a handful of Chicago hotspots including Fountainhead and Delilah’s, and only available for purchase at a Binny’s location near you. This stuff won’t last, so head in and grab your bottle soon.
The other real star of the night – if we can be so bold – is the newly expanded Binny’s Lincoln Park. Guests were blown away by our newly expanded location, including the Champagne Depot and Lincoln Park Tasting Room. We knew we had something great, but there’s just something special about witnessing honest reactions to the location. Binny’s Lincoln Park – Seeing is Believing.
Bourbon Women Night was a fantastic evening of education, networking and of course, oodles of bourbon!
Fun whiskey enthusiasts enjoyed samples from a large selection of bourbon, whiskey and craft spirits. It’s tough to name our favorites because they were all so amazing. A few highlights included a Vosges chocolate and Koval bourbon pairing, craft spirits from our friends at North Shore Distillery and incredible single malts and cask strength Signatory bottlings from the Stoller profile. We also had some sweet treats (Bourbon Manhattan cupcakes to be exact) from our pals at Cakes Under The Influence.

With father’s day just around the corner, this is a great opportunity to start shopping for Dad. Hennessy is stopping by a few Binny’s locations for free bottle engravings with the purchase of Hennessy Black. You’ll also have the opportunity to taste the smooth Cognac. Be sure to try it with one of the recommended cocktails below.
They’re calling it their “Never stop. Never settle.” campaign, showcasing the story of legendary motorist Sir Malcolm Campbell’s historic breaking of nine land speed records in the 1920′s and 30′s. Considering the spirit of the campaign, I have to wonder if Sir Malcolm Campbell’s iconic racecar had brakes.
See, Campbell was the kind of thrill seeker who broke land speed record after land speed record. Campbell, as it turns out, was also famous for being one of the few land speed record holders who did not die in a firey auto crash. He had a series of cars, all called “Blue Bird,” and Hennessy is touring a 24 foot replica of one of these fast, fast cars across America.
Along with the car and a timeline of Campbell’s accomplishments, Hennessy is showcasing samples of signature cocktails featuring Hennessy. Plus, this is your chance to enter a sweepstakes to win a trip to France, including stops at the Hennessy Distillery in Cognac and the Formula 1 Academy in Nice. If you can’t make it to the event, participate by tweeting @HennessyUS with the hashtag #wildrabbitchase.
