It’s all done in the best possible taste.
January is not a time noted for its exuberance. The post-Christmas hangover has kicked in physically. mentally and financially. What better time could there be to enjoy a spirit- lifting cocktail with a warming bourbon heart? An increasingly popular drink across the world — a recent report reckons we'll be drinking 35% more in the next few years — it‘s the tipple of chOice for the likes of Madonna. Julia Roberts and Zoe Ball to name but a few.
This is a niggling but accurate pOint: bourbon can come only from Kentucky. with neigthuring Tennessee producing perhaps more famous brands such as Jack Daniels. BOurbons tend to be more interesting and often coming from boutique distilleries with a tiny output. The smallest working distillery in Kentucky is Woodford Reserve. which has been producing for almost 200 years. Enioyed as a stand alone dram. it's immensely enjoyable With caramel and mint notes on the palate. It also lends itself amazingly to cocktails which is a concept the whole whiskie'iy industry is gradually waking up to.
