With Warren American Whiskey Kitchen being a Mecca for brown spirit lovers in Florida we’re fortunate to get visits from so many famous distillers in Kentucky and from all over the country!
Most recently, Tommy Brunett, founder of Iron Smoke Distillery in Rochester, N.Y, made his way down to the Sunshine State and we were able to catch up with him out on the town and at the Warren Whiskey Library and Warren Tasting Bar.
Tommy is one of the coolest, most humble and talented whiskey makers you’ll ever meet and his Iron Smoke whiskey has earned many awards and taken the nation by storm! Jim Murray, considered at this point to be the leading whiskey expert on the planet, recently gave his Iron Smoke Bourbon a whopping 95.5 rating in his annual Whiskey Bible. That is incredible!! Congrats, Tommy!!
If you’ve not tried this whiskey (and the hard to find “Casket Strength”) you should definitely give it a sip. Tommy and his team are famous for smoking their grains with apple chips to give it just the perfect whisper of apple smoke flavoring. “Superb!” according to Mr. Murray!
Next up: This Friday, 6/30, we will be hosting another renowned and rebel distiller: Dan Garrison from Garrison Brothers Whiskey in Texas! Dan will be at Warren for a meet and greet and bottle signing from 5-7pm. We will have bottles available for sale so you can purchase some and have this industry icon sign yours personally!
Don’t forget: The good folks from Rabbit Hole will be in the house on Thursday, July 13 for a tasting on the patio. Details to come.
This just in: The next whiskey class will be Scotch 101 at 3pm on Saturday, July 22. $39 to talk about and taste through five regions of this iconic country, whisky and history.
