Since bourbon and barbecue are inherently related, Percy Street owners Michael Solomonov, Steve Cook and Erin OShea want their own private stock of the precious Kentucky export. And they are working with Four Roses Distillery to get it. But before they opt in and purchase a hulking cask of the stuff, they want to be certain its the best possible bourbon they can get their hands on. To do that, theyre hosting a tasting tonight with Mr. Four Roses himself, master distiller Jim Rutledge. Hes bringing along samples poured straight from the barrels at Four Roses HQ in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Guest will have the opportunity to taste the samples and discuss them with their maker. At the end of the night, the whiskey thats found to be the most palatable will be the one the Percy Street crew purchases. Space is limited, so RSVP for the tasting at fourroses@percystreet.com.
