St. Louis’ Gamlin Whiskey House Named Best Whiskey Bar By Thrillist

Published on 2/15/2014

The scene: Just opened in Oct 2013, Gamlin has already acquired a serious collection of 270+ whiskeys, including a single barrel Knob Creek, all 5 Pappys, and a ’74 A.H. Hirsch that’s $300 for a 2.5oz pour. The whiskey sommelier on duty can help you select one. Despite the “sommelier”, things are kept quite casual, with servers often dressed in t-shirts. Each dish on the steak-heavy menu also has a pre-selected whiskey pairing to help the food go down.
What you’re drinking: Kentucky Mule (Old Grand-Dad bourbon, house-made ginger beer infused with lime — served as a Slush)
