Elijah Craig onthul nuwe groot herontwerp van Flagship Small Batch

Elijah Craig onthul nuwe groot herontwerp van Flagship Small Batch

Heaven Hill Distillery, een van die land se oudste en voorste Amerikaanse whiskyprodusente, het 'n groot herontwerp van die vlagskip onthul Elijah Craig Klein bondel Amerikaanse whisky. Elijah Craig Small Batch is die eerste keer in 1986 bekendgestel, lank voordat die term 'klein bondel' ooit gewild geword het.

Die nuwe ontwerp kom van die 81-jarige, familie-beheerde moedermaatskappy se hernieude verbintenis tot die Elijah Craig-handelsmerk in die hoop om dit meer toeganklik vir die publiek te maak.

"In 'n tyd waarin die vraag na Bourbon op rekordvlak is, hernu ons ons verbintenis tot die vervaardiging van Elijah Craig Small Batch, sodat ons dit meer algemeen in die mark beskikbaar kan hê, eerder as altyd op toewysing of bloot uit voorraad," sê Max L. Shapira, president van Heaven Hill Distillery en familielid van die tweede generasie. "Ons nuwe bottelontwerp vier die belofte van Elijah Craig Small Batch om 'n uitstekende Bourbon van die hoogste gehalte in ons bedryf te wees."

Die nuwe bottel lyk groter en meer verfyn met skoner, gladde lyne en bedek met 'n kurk versier met donkerbruin gekleurde hout. Die jaar "1789" is op die glas aangebring, wat dui op die jaar waarin ds Elijah Craig, die sogenaamde "Vader van Bourbon", sy distilleerdery gestig het, en 'n klein papieretiket wat aan die onderkant van die bottel woon, is gemerk met Die handtekening van Elijah Craig sowel as produkinligting.

Elijah Craig Small Batch word uitsluitlik gemaak uit klein groepies van slegs agtjarige tot 12-jarige reguit Bourbon-whisky uit Kentucky wat in verkoolde eikehoutvate verouder word. Hierdie whisky het onlangs gesogte toekennings verower, waaronder 'n goue medalje tydens die 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition; Dubbele goue medalje en “Best Bourbon in Show” by 2016 Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America Convention; en 'n 92 (uitstekend/sterk aanbeveel) by die 2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

Daar word voorgestel dat Elijah Craig Small Batch met sy komplekse smaak netjies of op die rotse geniet kan word, maar dit skitter ook in klassieke cocktails soos die Gold Rush, Old-fashioned en Manhattan.

Ter viering van die herontwerp en in die gees van die herfsseisoen, het Megan Dorman, mixoloog en eienaar van NYC's Die Bennett, gemaak van 'n Haystack Toddy wat Elijah Craig Small Batch, Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur, pampoenbotter en warm water kombineer. Klik hier vir die resep.


Ons 9 gunsteling bourbonstawe-plus spesiale aanbiedinge vir drankies

Soms kry ons regering dit reg. Op 2 Augustus 2007 verklaar die Amerikaanse senaat in 'n eenparige besluit September as die nasionale Bourbon -erfenismaand. Dit kom jare nadat die kongres bourbon in 1964 as 'America's Native Spirit' uitgespreek het.

Die Skotte en Iere stry oor wie whisky uitgevind het (of whisky soos die Skotte, Kanadese en Japannese dit spel), maar bourbon is 'n heeltemal Amerikaanse gees.

St. Germain en Canton Ginger, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Laphroaig scotch

Volgens die legende het die vervaardiger van Chambord sy twee seuns uitgedaag om 'n likeur beter as syne te maak - en beter as mekaar s'n. Die resultaat van die voltooiing was die een van St. Germaine en die ander kanton. Hierdie drankie is 'n huldeblyk aan hul rusie met Bourbon en Scotch wat in 'n glas stry om liefde. Dustin Courtright, libationist in die W Austin, beveel aan dat jy die skemerkelkie met 'n strooi drink om die smaak van die bestanddele te laat ontwikkel terwyl jy teug. 'Die bier sal in die drank kom en daarin versmelt, dan sit u met 'n bourbon-scotch-huwelik.'

Terwyl u daar is, probeer die enkele vat Eagle Rare wat spesiaal vir die W Austin gekies en gebottel is.

Whisler's: Lion's Tail
Bourbon, St. Elizabeth peperpeper, limoensap, demerara stroop, 2 strepe Angostura bitters, limoenwiel

Skop terug met een van drie bourbon -cocktails op hierdie gemaklike oostelike plek. Die nagte koel net genoeg af om whisky op die patio te geniet. 'Dit is nie u tipiese sitrusgedrewe skemerkelkie nie,' sê hoofbestuurder Cesar Aguilar oor die leeustert. "Deur die toevoeging van dram en angostura-bitter maak dit 'n helder bourbon-skemerkelkie, waar die soetheid van die bourbon beklemtoon en beklemtoon word met notas van alle speserye en kruidnagel, en dit pas goed met die eikebome-karakter van die bourbon."


Ons 9 gunsteling bourbonstawe-plus spesiale aanbiedinge vir drankies

Soms kry ons regering dit reg. Op 2 Augustus 2007 verklaar die Amerikaanse senaat in 'n eenparige besluit September as die nasionale Bourbon -erfenismaand. Dit kom jare nadat die kongres bourbon in 1964 as 'America's Native Spirit' uitgespreek het.

Die Skotte en Iere stry oor wie whisky uitgevind het (of whisky soos die Skotte, Kanadese en Japannese dit spel), maar bourbon is 'n heeltemal Amerikaanse gees. As die whiskybottel bourbon sê, moet dit in die VSA gemaak word. Volgens regulasie word bourbon gemaak van gegiste korrels, insluitend ten minste 51 persent mielies, dit moet in nuwe eikehoutvate verouder word en mag geen bymiddels, kleure of geure bevat nie.

Daar kan baie reëls wees vir hoe dit gemaak word, maar daar is nie baie reëls oor hoe om dit te geniet nie, en Austin -kroeë trek alles uit om Bourbon Heritage Month te vier. Hier is 'n paar van die beste bourbon -drankies wat u in die stad kan kry.

The Blackheart: The Gentleman Caller
Ou oupa 114, Antica Sweet Vermouth, Brothers Black Walnut Bitters

Die agterste kroeg van The Blackheart is besaai met meer as 100 soorte whisky. Amber sonskyn verhelder die glimlag van kliënte met 'n uitstekende verskeidenheid bourbons, waaronder Pappy Van Winkle 20 en 23 jaar oud, en 'n stewige verskeidenheid Texas whisky, waaronder Garrison Brothers, Red River Texas Bourbon Treaty Oak Red Handed Bourbon en Balcones Whiskey. Hoofbestuurder Jeremy Murray beskryf The Gentleman Caller as: "Big bourbon, high proof ontmoet swart okkerneut in hierdie unieke draai op 'n klassieke Manhattan. Ons bedien dit in 'n outydse glas met 'n enkele groot kubus."

Drink.well: Eerwaarde se uitstel
Elijah Craig 12 jaar Bourbon, kaneelsiroop, vars suurlemoen, PAMA granaatlikeur, gebakte appelbitter, koorsboom -sprankelende suurlemoensoda, appelskyfie

Drink.wel. neem Bourbon Heritage Month ernstig op met 'n ander whisky wat elke dag teen halfprys aangebied word. It’s an impressive list with whiskeys like Four Roses Single Barrel, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Old, Eagle Rare 17 year old and Stag Jr. from Buffalo Trace.

"This is an 'Indian summer'-inspired highball cocktail," explains owner Jessica Sanders of the Reverend's Reprieve. "Elijah Craig 12 Year is a small batch Bourbon with a nose and flavor profile that begs for fall — baked apples, toffee, nuttiness — but the anise and mint finish are just bright enough to let the feel of summer linger. The cocktail is long, refreshing and fizzy, but with the warmth and spice of a cooler-weather drink."

Due Forni: The Drunken Gaucho
Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon, house made Limoncello, Aperol, Amaro Montenegro, egg whites

This bourbon cocktail with an Italian twist is a great way to whet your appetite for a traditional Neapolitan pizza. A perfect balance of booze, bitter and citrus bite with a frothy bit of fun will transport you from the Kentucky hills to the Tyrrhenian coast.

Half Step: Kentucky Colonel
Bonded bourbon, angostura bitters, Benedictine

Half Step has a well-selected line up of whiskeys including Michter's 20 Year Single Barrel Bourbon and Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 year. For this cocktail, Barman Florian Minier mixes a variation of an Old Fashioned using 100 proof bourbon and served with a huge, hand-cut ice cube. The bonded whiskey gives the drink little more heat to cut through the sweetness of the Benedictine in the cocktail. That huge hunk of ice also melts slowly, letting the drink mellow as you go.

Péché: High West Double Rye Old Fashioned
High West rye, lemon peel, JT bitters

Péché may be known for its absinthe, but it has an impressive selection of whiskey including Angel’s Envy Cask Strength, Jefferson Presidential 21 Year Bourbon and Willett 12 Year. An Old Fashioned is a whiskey lover’s go-to cocktail and this recipe packs a bit of spice to keep you smiling.

Searsucker: New Fashioned
Angel Envy bourbon, orange curacao, orange rind, a mixture of Angostura and Peychudes bitters

"We make a 'New Fashioned' with our very own Searsucker blend of Angel’s Envy Bourbon that we call the Suckers Blend,” says Bar Manager Robin Ozaki. "Angel’s Envy blended a specific batch based on three different styles that they let me experiment with. When I dialed in the recipe that I felt best as a base for a cocktail, they bottled 120 specially branded 'Searsucker' Angel Envy Bottles, and sent them to Texas!"

The Tigress Pub: Beggar’s Banquet
Treaty Oak Red Handed Bourbon, maple syrup, lemon juice, Old Speckled Hen ale

You might not get lost in this cozy bar, but it’s highly possible to get lost in thought while sipping on one of owner Pamela Pritchard’s elegantly crafted drinks. "The Tigress loves bourbon," she says. "We have just changed the menu for September to feature some bourbon cocktails. The three bourbon cocktails on the menu are The Scofflaw, The Black Demure and Beggar's banquet which is our on-tap cocktail. In addition, I have some bourbons I don't normally have on hand like Prichards Double Barreled bourbon, Angels Envy, Elijah Craig 12 year, Willet Pot Still Reserve and Wild Turkey 81."

W Austin: The Brother’s Quarrel
St. Germain and Canton Ginger, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Laphroaig scotch

Legend has it that the maker of Chambord challenged his two sons make a liqueur better than his — and better than each other’s. The result of the completion was one made St. Germaine and the other Canton. This drink is an homage to their quarrel with Bourbon and Scotch vying for affection in one glass. Dustin Courtright, libationist at the W Austin, recommends drinking the layered cocktail with a straw to let the ingredients’ flavors evolve as you sip. "The scotch will come down into drink and fuse into it, then you’re left with a bourbon-scotch marriage."

While you're there, try the single barrel Eagle Rare that was chosen and bottled specifically for the W Austin.

Whisler’s: Lion's Tail
Bourbon, St. Elizabeth allspice dram, lime juice, demerara syrup, 2 dashes of Angostura bitters, lime wheel

Kick back with one of three featured bourbon cocktails at this easy going east side spot. The nights are cooling off just enough to enjoy whiskey on the patio. "This is not your typical citrus-driven cocktail," General Manager Cesar Aguilar says of the Lion's Tail. "By adding dram and angostura bitters, it makes a bright bourbon cocktail, where the bourbon’s sweetness is highlighted and accented with notes of all spice and clove, and it pairs well with the oak-y character of the bourbon."


Our 9 favorite bourbon bars — plus can't-miss drink specials

Sometimes our government gets it right. On August 2, 2007 the U.S. Senate declared September as National Bourbon Heritage Month in a unanimous decision. This came years after Congress pronounced bourbon as “America’s Native Spirit” in 1964. It makes sipping bourbon feel downright patriotic.

The Scots and Irish argue over who invented whiskey (or whisky as the Scots, Canadians and Japanese spell it), but bourbon is a completely American spirit. If the whiskey bottle says bourbon, it must be made in the U.S. By regulation, bourbon is made from fermented grains including at least 51 percent corn, it must be aged in new oak barrels and cannot contain any additives, colors or flavors.

There may be a lot of rules for how it’s made, but there aren't many rules on how to enjoy it, and Austin bars are pulling out all the stops to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month. Here are some of the best bourbon drink specials you’ll find around town.

We serve this in an Old Fashioned glass with a single large cube."

The result of the completion was one made St. Germaine and the other Canton. This drink is an homage to their quarrel with Bourbon and Scotch vying for affection in one glass. Dustin Courtright, libationist at the W Austin, recommends drinking the layered cocktail with a straw to let the ingredients’ flavors evolve as you sip. "The scotch will come down into drink and fuse into it, then you’re left with a bourbon-scotch marriage."

While you're there, try the single barrel Eagle Rare that was chosen and bottled specifically for the W Austin.

Whisler’s: Lion's Tail
Bourbon, St. Elizabeth allspice dram, lime juice, demerara syrup, 2 dashes of Angostura bitters, lime wheel

Kick back with one of three featured bourbon cocktails at this easy going east side spot. The nights are cooling off just enough to enjoy whiskey on the patio. "This is not your typical citrus-driven cocktail," General Manager Cesar Aguilar says of the Lion's Tail. "By adding dram and angostura bitters, it makes a bright bourbon cocktail, where the bourbon’s sweetness is highlighted and accented with notes of all spice and clove, and it pairs well with the oak-y character of the bourbon."


Our 9 favorite bourbon bars — plus can't-miss drink specials

Sometimes our government gets it right. On August 2, 2007 the U.S. Senate declared September as National Bourbon Heritage Month in a unanimous decision. This came years after Congress pronounced bourbon as “America’s Native Spirit” in 1964. It makes sipping bourbon feel downright patriotic.

The Scots and Irish argue over who invented whiskey (or whisky as the Scots, Canadians and Japanese spell it), but bourbon is a completely American spirit. If the whiskey bottle says bourbon, it must be made in the U.S. By regulation, bourbon is made from fermented grains including at least 51 percent corn, it must be aged in new oak barrels and cannot contain any additives, colors or flavors.

There may be a lot of rules for how it’s made, but there aren't many rules on how to enjoy it, and Austin bars are pulling out all the stops to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month. Here are some of the best bourbon drink specials you’ll find around town.

The Blackheart: The Gentleman Caller
Old Grand Dad 114, Antica Sweet Vermouth, Brothers Black Walnut Bitters

The back bar of The Blackheart is studded with more than 100 types of whiskey. Amber sunshine brightens the smile of customers with a stellar selection of bourbons including Pappy Van Winkle 20 and 23 year old and a solid selection of Texas whiskey including Garrison Brothers, Red River Texas Bourbon Treaty Oak Red Handed Bourbon and Balcones Whisky. General Manager Jeremy Murray describes The Gentleman Caller as, "Big bourbon, high proof meets black walnut in this a unique twist on a classic Manhattan. We serve this in an Old Fashioned glass with a single large cube."

Drink.well: Reverend's Reprieve
Elijah Craig 12 Year Bourbon, cinnamon syrup, fresh lemon, PAMA pomegranate liqueur, baked apple Bitters, Fever Tree Sparkling Lemon Soda, apple slice

Drink.well. is taking Bourbon Heritage Month seriously with a different whiskey offered for half-price every day. It’s an impressive list with whiskeys like Four Roses Single Barrel, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Old, Eagle Rare 17 year old and Stag Jr. from Buffalo Trace.

"This is an 'Indian summer'-inspired highball cocktail," explains owner Jessica Sanders of the Reverend's Reprieve. "Elijah Craig 12 Year is a small batch Bourbon with a nose and flavor profile that begs for fall — baked apples, toffee, nuttiness — but the anise and mint finish are just bright enough to let the feel of summer linger. The cocktail is long, refreshing and fizzy, but with the warmth and spice of a cooler-weather drink."

Due Forni: The Drunken Gaucho
Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon, house made Limoncello, Aperol, Amaro Montenegro, egg whites

This bourbon cocktail with an Italian twist is a great way to whet your appetite for a traditional Neapolitan pizza. A perfect balance of booze, bitter and citrus bite with a frothy bit of fun will transport you from the Kentucky hills to the Tyrrhenian coast.

Half Step: Kentucky Colonel
Bonded bourbon, angostura bitters, Benedictine

Half Step has a well-selected line up of whiskeys including Michter's 20 Year Single Barrel Bourbon and Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 year. For this cocktail, Barman Florian Minier mixes a variation of an Old Fashioned using 100 proof bourbon and served with a huge, hand-cut ice cube. The bonded whiskey gives the drink little more heat to cut through the sweetness of the Benedictine in the cocktail. That huge hunk of ice also melts slowly, letting the drink mellow as you go.

Péché: High West Double Rye Old Fashioned
High West rye, lemon peel, JT bitters

Péché may be known for its absinthe, but it has an impressive selection of whiskey including Angel’s Envy Cask Strength, Jefferson Presidential 21 Year Bourbon and Willett 12 Year. An Old Fashioned is a whiskey lover’s go-to cocktail and this recipe packs a bit of spice to keep you smiling.

Searsucker: New Fashioned
Angel Envy bourbon, orange curacao, orange rind, a mixture of Angostura and Peychudes bitters

"We make a 'New Fashioned' with our very own Searsucker blend of Angel’s Envy Bourbon that we call the Suckers Blend,” says Bar Manager Robin Ozaki. "Angel’s Envy blended a specific batch based on three different styles that they let me experiment with. When I dialed in the recipe that I felt best as a base for a cocktail, they bottled 120 specially branded 'Searsucker' Angel Envy Bottles, and sent them to Texas!"

The Tigress Pub: Beggar’s Banquet
Treaty Oak Red Handed Bourbon, maple syrup, lemon juice, Old Speckled Hen ale

You might not get lost in this cozy bar, but it’s highly possible to get lost in thought while sipping on one of owner Pamela Pritchard’s elegantly crafted drinks. "The Tigress loves bourbon," she says. "We have just changed the menu for September to feature some bourbon cocktails. The three bourbon cocktails on the menu are The Scofflaw, The Black Demure and Beggar's banquet which is our on-tap cocktail. In addition, I have some bourbons I don't normally have on hand like Prichards Double Barreled bourbon, Angels Envy, Elijah Craig 12 year, Willet Pot Still Reserve and Wild Turkey 81."

W Austin: The Brother’s Quarrel
St. Germain and Canton Ginger, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Laphroaig scotch

Legend has it that the maker of Chambord challenged his two sons make a liqueur better than his — and better than each other’s. The result of the completion was one made St. Germaine and the other Canton. This drink is an homage to their quarrel with Bourbon and Scotch vying for affection in one glass.
