Bourbon Women Night
Thursday, March 17th 6:00-8:00pm
If you had the chance to try the Bourbon Women Night 2015 Four Roses Bourbon Women Handpick, then you'll definitely want to try this year's Bourbon Women Smooth Ambler Handpicked single barrels. You read that right, Bourbon Women Chicago selected TWO Smooth Ambler Handpicked single barrels, which will both be available to sample and purchase exclusively at Binny's Lincoln Park the night of Bourbon Women Night.
"This year we selected two very special Smooth Ambler barrels. Bourbon Women Chicago collectively agreed that they each embody the feeling of spring and fall here in Chicago. Our first handpicked selection, the one with a flower on the bottle, is full of apricot, maple, and brown sugar flavors. It has hints of creamsicle and candy spice and is mellow with a creamy mouthfeel. This complex bottling would mix perfectly in an old fashioned. Our second handpicked selection, the one with the leaf on the label, has an old soul. Sweet pipe tobacco and chocolate covered cherry hints grasp your nose, while salted caramel and butterscotch flavors take over your taste buds. There's a slight almond nuttiness on the finish and it will leave you wanting more. This handpick is approachable and is one we feel everyone will enjoy." - Bourbon Women Chicago
In addition to Smooth Ambler, there will be tastings from local distilleries like North Shore, Koval, Rhine Hall, Chicago Distilling and CH Distilling. Our friends from the south will also be there including Four Roses, Jim Beam, George Dickel, Woodford Reserve and many, many more. Each tasting is led by an influential female from the industry who represents that brand and will guide you through their current products available at Binny's. Other highlights include specialty cocktails influenced by female Chicago mixologists, small bites from local Lincoln Park establishments, and a rare selection of Binny's Handpicked Single Barrels led by the Whiskey Hotline. After this tasting we're sure you'll want to plan a trip down to Kentucky, so stop by the VisitLex and The Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau table for more information on all there is to do and see in the bourbon capital of the world.
