Welcome back to our third installation of “Whiskey of the Week”! We’re going to change things up a bit this week on you – keeping it fresh, as always. Now through Sunday, December 23, we’re going to offer a different Whiskey of the Week special in Raleigh and Greensboro.
First Up – Greensboro: I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
According to the official brand website, “I.W. Harper’s story begins in 1848 when our founder, I.W. Bernheim, came to America with $4 and a dream. A century later, his bourbon whiskey empire remains.” It’s an interesting history of whiskey through cultural change and prohibition to where we are today. Be sure to ask your friendly barkeep for their take on this Dram favorite.
Enjoy this classic for just $10 for a two-ounce pour now through Sunday, December 23, in Greensboro.
Next on the Roster – Raleigh: Old Forester Signature 100 Proof
The official website for this spirit boasts that, as “a favorite of bartenders, Signature 100 Proof honors the legacy of founder George Garvin Brown, who put his signature on every bottle. And this bourbon is definitely one he would be proud to have his name on today. Handpicked from select barrels, Old Forester Signature 100 Proof is a rich, complex bourbon. Spicy and robust, Signature is bottled at 100 Proof to maintain its distinct character and full flavor profile.”
In Raleigh, you can try this selection by itself for just $8 for a two-ounce pour or ask for an Old Forester flight to compare it to its siblings. There’s nothing like a family tradition during the holiday season! This special price runs through Sunday, December 23.
Be sure to tune in next week for our fourth and final installment of Whiskey of the Week for 2018!
