under current long bar shot

Under Current – Under Current Bar is turning their educational focus to American Whiskey in October. First, High West Distillery will be featured on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017 from 5 until 7 p.m. Led by celebrated mixologist and managing partner, Amy Eldredge and High West’s Julia Camp, the event features Double Rye, Campfire, American Prairie, Rendezvous Rye and 14-year Light. Cost to attend is $45.

Later in the month, American Whiskey will be the focus of a spirited educational event from 2 until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 28, 2017. Led by Eldredge, the afternoon will focus on various American Whiskeys including production, history and tasting notes. The event will feature two classic American Whiskey-based cocktails and six tastings, all paired with Chef Alan Brines’ award-winning bites from Current Fish & Oyster. Cost to attend is $55.

Guests will begin with a classic Manhattan with Rittenhouse Rye, Dolin sweet vermouth and Angostura Bitters. Then they will explore nuances of American Whiskeys including: Breuklelen 77 (Brooklyn, NY); Corsair Triple Smoke (Nashville, TN); High West Silver Oat (Park City, UT); Johnny Drum (Bardstown, KY); Pikesville Rye (Scott’s Level, MD); and Eagle Rare Single Barrel (Frankfort, KY). To close out the event another classic cocktail, an Old Fashioned, with Buffalo Trace bourbon, raw sugar, Angostura Bitters and an orange twist will be served. Eldredge writes:

American Whiskeys are a major backbone in the spirit industry, not just limited to the U.S. but all over the world. We are now seeing not only your bourbons and ryes, but some interesting blends of millet, quinoa, corn, and wheat to name a few, being produced all over America. We are excited to share some of these unique blends that are carried at Under Current.

What I love about American Whiskey is the versatility in cocktails, and the various nuanced flavors that come out in your classic whiskey cocktails, depending on variations. Take your classic Manhattan for example-no two versions are alike using different American Whiskeys paired with an assortment of vermouth and craft bitters, so it’s really fun to mix with
