Spirits Tasting: Filibuster Bourbon
featuring Rob Moulthrop
Thursday, May 26, 2016 / 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
This Thursday, Rob Moulthrop from Filibuster Bourbon will be joining us for a tasting of "The Boondoggler" and Filibuster's "Dual-Cask" Gin. This tasting is free.
The Boondoggler: A one-of-a-kind American whiskey! A proprietary blend of 2-3 year-old rye & bourbon, The Boondoggler is fractionally aged in French oak, then batched, blended, and cut to 90 proof with Shenandoah limestone well water, and then re-aged in a used bourbon barrel for a year.There’s nothing else quite like it; this is the everything bagel of whiskies.
"Dual-Cask" Gin: To create this full-bodied, flavorful style of gin, the folks at Filibuster do a secondary infusion of fresh, hand-picked herbs directly in the barrel, and age it for a few months. The result is a barrel-aged “New World” Gin, perfect for cocktails! 95% Corn, 5% Barley mash bill, infused with locally-sourced holy basil, juniper, rosemary, and lemon verbena. "Dual-Cask” aged in French and American oak barrels for 60-90 days to impart a full, rich mouthfeel, and a subtle sweetness.
