That’s right. Through April 30th, 2019 we have the great Larceny Wheated Bourgon (1.75ML) on sale, and we’re giving away a bottle of Dolin Vermouth Rouge (375ml) with your purchase, all to convince you to learn how to make the perfect 212 Manhattan.
212 is an iconic area code for Manhattan, and it’s an easy way to remember the quantities for one perfectly made Manhattan.
Whether we’re turning neophytes onto bourbon or introducing new finds to long-time aficionados, we at Bottles love talking about bourbon. We love talking about it, writing about it, sipping it, mixing it, discovering new distillers and re-discovering old distillers. We just flat out heart bourbon.
To spread the love to team members that are new to the store, we give them a crash course in the beloved brown spirit. A “Bourbon 101” to prime their palates for the joys ahead.
And given the sheer volume of questions we get in-store about bourbon we’re sharing our primer with you. What follows is meant to give you the basics on what it is and how it’s made. Once you’ve got that down, come in to the store or give us a call for the fun stuff: the flavor differences between styles and producers, which is sweetest, which is strongest, how best to enjoy bourbon and which makes the best Manhattan (just our opinion , of course).
