The American Whiskey industry is on the rise, reaching production levels that have not been attained since Prohibition (the American ban on spirits issued by the Volstead Act, 1919-1930, which shut down American distilleries to great consequence). The category of American Whiskey includes Bourbon, Rye, Corn Whiskey, Malt Whiskey and Moonshine. As Americans are re-discovering our national spirit, distilleries like the traditional Bourbon Maker's Mark simply cannot keep up with demand. Legendary producers from Tennessee and Kentucky (the heartland of Bourbon) like George Dickel (established 1870) remain pillars of the American Whiskey Industry. Small, craft distilleries also bring an angle to the new landscape of American Whiskey, adding a small-batch, artisanal and local side to enjoy. Small batch bourbons, especially at the super premium level — brand like Pappy Van Winkle, George T. Stagg, and others, have reached a status of rarity and unattainability that they are deemed "unicorns" of American Whiskey. 

For the month of February, 67 Wine & Spirits harnesses the American Whiskey renaissance in our store on Columbus Avenue, turning it into a hotspot for Whiskey tastings that will satisfy Whiskey lovers as well as the Whiskey-curious. Our month long tasting will take you through the brands you need to know to the most local craft distillery. We are excited to release our private selection 67 Wine-George Dickel Tennessee Whisky on February 17th with a Mardi Gras party. And learn the secrets of cocktail experts Robert Simonson author of The-Old Fashioned: The Story of the World’s First Classic Cocktail, with Recipes and Lore and Warren Bobrow, author of Whiskey Cocktails: Rediscovered Classics and Contemporary Craft Drinks Using the World’s Most Popular Spirit in two cocktail events that will have your taste-buds wailing with delight.
