Bottled in Bond Whiskey Tasting

October 11, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


This event is only available to members until Monday.  Hope to see you there!

Join us at Bowman’s Tavern for an in-depth look at what makes “Bottled in Bond” so desirable on a whiskey label.  Find out why we are living in the greatest era for whiskey production and how this label distinction helped bring about a whiskey renaissance.

In 1897, the United States Congress passed the Bottled in Bond Act.  It was in response to the widespread adulteration of whiskey that had begun to compromise the reputation of the quality and safety of American whiskey.  Why was it necessary?  Who were the men that pushed Congress for our first consumer protection law?  Why is this label distinction important almost 120 years later?

These whiskeys are the best value whiskeys on the market.  They are straight whiskeys in the purest sense, and at 100 proof, hold up to any cocktail recipe.   Bartenders swear by these bourbons and rye whiskeys because of their solid foundations and their flavor quality.  We will sample 6 very underrated whiskeys and discuss the history, the distillers behind them, and flavor profiles of each.
