Truth is, I've been working my ass off here at the shop. I've been searching high and low for new spirits to bring into SG&G as well as setting up fun spirits tastings. The first of three tastings was Tuesday Nov 22nd. It was dubbed the Big Bad Bourbon Tasting. We featured 24 Bourbons and whiskeys, a homemade barrel aged Bourbon "Manhattan", an Imperial Stout from Laughing Dog Brewery that has been aged in Bourbon barrels, pretzels with a homemade Bourbon honey-maple dijon mustard and homemade Bourbon balls that were amazing! Our friends at Collyer Catering also brought some delicious rosemary flank steak skewers with spiked Bourbon reduction sauce and grilled shrimp with a Bourbon brown sugar sauce.
I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of the actual event. It was just way too busy. I think we all had a good time that night. I'm definitely looking forward to next year's Bourbon Tasting. In the meantime, keep your ears open for our Holiday Scotch tasting.
