Celebrating Bourbon Heritage Month

31 Aug

In honor of National Bourbon Heritage Month, Gamlin Whiskey House is opening its whiskey vault and releasing a set of rare bourbons.

The Bourbon Heritage Month menu includes the 1998 Russell’s Reserve, the John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve and five varieties from the Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection.

The establishment will also release its first single barrel of Jefferson’s Reserve Groth Cask Finish bourbon at a tasting event with the distillery’s Master Blender Trey Zoeller at 6 p.m Wednesday, Aug. 31. A sold-out chef’s dinner with Zoeller will take place at Sub Zero Vodka Bar after the tasting.

“Some of the bourbons we are featuring are incredibly hard to find,” Gamlin Whiskey House Proprietor Lucas Gamlin says. “In some cases, there may only be a few bottles in the whole state. This is a great opportunity for bourbon fans to sample something different from their favorite distillery, or enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime taste of a unique bourbon.”

In 2007, the United States Senate declared September as National Bourbon Heritage Month.

“Bourbon is part of our country’s history with family recipes and traditions that have been unchanged for generations,” Gamlin Whiskey House Proprietor Derek Gamlin says. “This month is a chance for us to honor this tradition and a spirit we all appreciate.”

Prices on the Bourbon Heritage Month menu range from $12 for a 1.5 oz. pour of the Orphan Barrel The Gifted Horse to $150 for a 2.5 oz pour of John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve. Click here to view the menu.

Missouri Whiskey Society members will receive a 10 percent discount on these selections throughout September. There will also be special offers released through Gamlin Whiskey House’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds throughout the month.

Lifetime memberships to the Missouri Whiskey Society are available for $35 each at Gamlin Whiskey House.
