Philadelphia, PA - As if you needed a holiday to tipple bourbon… cheers to National Bourbon Day, happening Thursday, June 14th. Philadelphians can raise a glass to America’s native spirit at the following imbibe-worthy locations:
Bourbon Day at Twisted Tail
This Friday, June 14th, The Twisted Tail, located in Philadelphia’s historic Society Hill, known for its extensive selection of brown spirits, is celebrating National Bourbon Day with two exclusive flights available for one day only. One flight is geared to the bourbon aficionado looking for a high-end experience, the second is just pure fun and easy drinking!
The “Owner’s Collection” ($79) — This flight is perfect for the bourbon connoisseur, featuring three top-rated bourbons of the year, including:
Four Roses 130th Anniversary
This special Bourbon was handcrafted to commemorate the 130-year history of Four Roses. A 13-year-old Bourbon from Four Roses’ OBSF recipe, a 10-year-old OBSV, a 14-year-old OESV and a and a 16-year-old OESK were selected for this Limited Edition Small Batch. Bottled at barrel strength with a proof 108.4, the remarkably balanced 130th Anniversary Limited Edition Small Batch introduces warm aromas of rich vanilla and crème brûlée, mingled with ripe berries.
Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Revival
Master’s Keep Revival is made from a blend of Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon aged 12-15 years before finishing in at least 20-year-old Oloroso Sherry casks, hand-selected by Master Distiller Eddie Russell. The result is a one-of-a-kind, 101 proof sipping whiskey with aromas of cherry pie, raisins, citrus, nuts and a touch of oak.
Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon
Ranked the “Best Spirit in the World” by F. Paul Pacult’s 2013 Spirit Journal, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength is unlike any bourbon you’ve ever tried.
“All in the Family” ($17)
For those looking for a more affordable option, The Twisted Tail will also offer a Jim Beam flight, featuring Basil Hayden, Baker’s and Knob Creek.
Guests are also invited to create their own bourbon flight and select their choice of 3 or 5 bourbons. The Twisted Tail bartenders are also happy to customize a flight based on favorites and preferences for the indecisive bourbon drinker. The customized flights will be $1 off per ounce on Friday in celebration of National Bourbon Day. All of the flights will be served with one ounce pours.
