Monday Night: 3 course meal, Blade And Bow Bourbon tastings and laughing the night away with Dallas’ top food & fashion bloggers. I wish every monday was this fun! The generous folks at Blade and Bow Kentucky Bourbon hosted a private dinner at Bistro 31 for Dallas influencers to get a taste of their newly released bourbon’s and even some that have never even been bottled. Paying homage to the iconic bourbon cathedral, Stitzel-Weller, Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey aims to provide a piece of bourbon history. Guests included my buddies The Perennial Style, The Fashion hour and Vodka Makes You Happy.
The Blade and Bow story began with the founding of the legendary Stitzel-Weller Distillery in 1935, a Louisville icon and home to the fathers of bourbon.
With a commitment to craftsmanship and artistry, Stitzel-Weller reimagined what Kentucky Bourbon could be until distilling stopped in 1992. Today Blade and Bow is opening the door to the next chapter of Stitzel-Weller’s renowned history. The Blade and Bow family includes two distinct variants: Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Each variant offers a completely unique experience that pays homage to this storied distillery and welcomes a new generation to the art of bourbon making. The evolution of this classic spirit is evident in the variety of flavors your pallet picks up in a simple sip. I personally loved the vanilla notes in the straight bourbon, while it hosts a note of vanilla it stays true to its roots throughout the full sip.
While I was one of the first to try Blade and Bow in Texas, whiskey enthusiasts will soon be eager to experience Blade and Bow themselves. To learn more about Blade and Bow click HERE
