    Bourbon Women Night 2018 Single Barrel

    Bourbon Women Night is an opportunity to taste spirits and network with the women of the spirits industry. Each year, Bourbon Women Chicago members choose a single barrel that will be released the night of the event. Over the last few years, they have picked single barrels from Smooth Ambler, Four Roses, J. Henry & Sons and Journeyman Distillery. This year’s handpick comes from Dekalb, Illinois.

  2. Bourbon Barrel Aged Wines

    Bourbon barrel aged wines have exploded in popularity alongside bourbon. We’re happy to offer three different takes on this up and coming style. These wines are aged in traditional oak and then finished for several months in used bourbon barrels to add complexity without the sweet bourbon notes overwhelming the wine.

  4. Bourbon Heritage Month 2016

    Why does bourbon get a whole month? The US Senate declared September “Bourbon Heritage Month” back in 2007. The bill passed with unanimous consent, and calls for consumers who enjoy bourbon to celebrate the family heritage, tradition and longstanding legacy that the bourbon industry contributes to America and the world. Whether you enjoy this classic American spirit on the rocks, neat, or in your favorite cocktail, let us know how you’re celebrating. We plan to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month this September with four of our favorite handpicked bourbons.

  5. Confessions of a Mixologist: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.

    Whiskey Acres Distilling Co., our new friends from Dekalb don't have to go very far for their corn and wheat. Their tagline, "from seed to spirit," says it all. They grow all of their grain on the farm and then use it to make their whiskey. We can't lie - it's pretty delicious. We have also waited patiently and their farm to glass bourbon is finally here! Whiskey Acres uses wheat as a secondary grain which helps create a softer, more rounded spirit. It's great on a rock or mixed into your favorite cocktail.
