YOU’RE INVITED to a whiskey tasting at FREIGHT KITCHEN at Main Street Woodstock! Our whiskey flight will begin with Brown-Forman’s new Coopers’ Craft Bourbon. Next up is Sixth Street Select-Stave Reserve Bourbon, a 10-year-old bottling by MASC’s Mike Leidel and Jim Beam Black Extra-Aged Bourbon. Our next three whiskies are from Heaven Hill Brands: Elijah Craig Small Batch and the best Rye that you can buy in the $50 and under price segment: Rittenhouse Bottled-in-Bond KY Rye, a HOF expression at 100-proof. Now for a big finish: Pikesville 110-proof Rye which is Rittenhouse Rye’s big brother (2 years older and 10-proof higher in alcoholic strength). Until recently, Pikesville 110 Rye had been limited to the Maryland market, but now is available throughout the US. With this fine lineup, the only thing missing is the pleasure of your good company. So, do please invite a friend for it will surely be a fun evening of fine spirits and fellowship!
