In 1964, bourbon was designated by Congress as a distinctive American spirit. Bourbon can be made anywhere in the US. Journey cross-country on Whisk(e)y Labs' “Route 64” for a bourbon road trip where we stop, sniff, swirl, and sip bourbons from various parts of the US in a side-by-side comparison. While we charted a route that passes through several cities well-known for distilleries, you decide which cities you want to “visit” by selecting a bourbon from that area for your tasting flight. You can stop at all or skip a few. Because we can't convene to do our usual in-person gathering, we have redesigned the tasting to be a virtual event with a map, tasting flight place mats, form to submit what your tasted, and a Zoom session to compare notes. Follow the event on Facebook too!
Join us for a quick "rest stop" to check-in and compare notes (i.e., Zoom session)! Which "cities" did you stop and visit? What did you select as the main attraction for that area (i.e., which bourbon did you select)? Maybe others selected the same. Post pictures on our Facebook event page!
ZOOM session scheduled for June 14, 2020 @ 4 PM EDT (info on our event page). Post pictures!
We marked 7 cities to visit along Route 64 (with an 8th stop that is your choice). We love side-by-side tastings. This is a great opportunity to explore nuances in bourbon from different regions. The tasting flight place mats can be a guide. Select a bourbon distilled and/or bottled in the following cities (or near these cities). Be sure to let us know what you selected!
Download the map and tasting place mats. NOTE: Ideal printing is on LEGAL-SIZED paper. We do have a 8.5x11 version, but the place mats may not be big enough for your glassware.
