Tuesday, September 24, 2019

location: The Phoenix (8480 W. 3rd St. Los Angeles, CA 90048)

(includes a welcome cocktail + light appetizers)


We are extremely pleased to have Stephanie Jerzy lead us on a "Taste Through History" for Bourbon Heritage Month. Join Southern California Whiskey Club for a flight of Old Forester marks that commemorate different periods of bourbon history. The Phoenix is also going all out by creating 4 specialty cocktails for this event; 2 with Old Forester Bourbon and 2 with Old Forester Rye.


Old Forester is officially the longest running Bourbon on the market today and was the first bourbon sold exclusively in sealed bottles. It was first bottled and marketed in 1870 by the former pharmaceutical salesman turned bourbon-merchant George Garvin Brown – the founder of the Brown-Forman Corporation. During the Prohibition period from 1920 to 1933, it was one of only 10 brands authorized for lawful production (medicinal purposes). Old Forester is produced at the Brown-Forman distillery in Shively, Kentucky using a mash bill of 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley.
