Want to Taste Some of the Rarest Bourbons?

Bourbon House’s upcoming events feature some of the most sought-after bourbons in the U.S.

As Food & Wine recently said, bottles of Pappy Van Winkle “are probably even more famous for being coveted than they are for being good.” But they also added “They are, of course, ‘very good.’” The coveting likely comes from the fact that they are very rare to come by—we always want what we can’t have. However, Bourbon House is giving you a chance to have AND drink not one, but FOUR of these unicorn bourbons at their Van Winkle Bourbon Dinner on February 6th. As added lagniappe, Preston Van Winkle, fourth generation of the Van Winkle bourbon family, will be in attendance.

The dinner includes passed hors d’oeuvres, an amuse bouche, five courses, craft cocktails and neat pours of Van Winkle bourbons from the 2017 release. Visit Bourbon House’s website for complete menu and ticket information.   

The rare bourbon experiences don’t stop there. Bourbon House is also kicking off a series of Vertical Bourbon Tastings from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. Each tasting will feature releases from 2017, 2018 and 2019. Beverage Director and Bourbon Steward, Barry Himel will lead the tastings. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will also be served. It’s rare to be able to find one of these bourbons, let alone to be able to taste three separate releases side-by-side.

March 18th – Thomas Handy Vertical Tasting (2017, 2018 and 2019 releases)

April 9th – George T. Stagg Vertical Tasting (2017, 2018 and 2019 releases)

May 14th – William Larue Weller Vertical Tasting (2017, 2018 and 2019 releases)
