Some people don’t understand the real difference between Whiskey, Bourbon, Scotch and Rye, but Bottlefork has you covered. The Huffington post recommended the River North bar & kitchen as a place to get a great Bourbon drink.
“Bourbon, whose name comes from an area known as “Old Bourbon” in Kentucky, is a whiskey that’s distilled from corn. For a whiskey to be considered bourbon, the grain mash must be at least 51 percent corn. On top of that, by law the mixture must be stored in charred oak containers and cannot contain any additives.”
Bourbon is great on its own, but adding spice takes it to the next level.
Two Bourbon drinks from Bottlefork the Huffington post recommends are “Differences of Character” and “For the Allocation”
“Differences of Character” has Bank Note 5 Year Blended Scotch Whisky, Allspice Dram (an allspice-flavored liqueur), ghost chili, lemon and honey,
“For the Allocation” includes Very Old Barton bourbon, Génépi des Alpes (an Italian herbal liqueur), plus Gran Classico and Regan’s Orange Bitters.
