Attending The Great Whisk(e)y Debate™ and Dinner by Jim Beam!

Fredrick "Fred" Booker Noe III
This Thursday Bill and I will be attending one of the nation’s premier spirits debates at the Bourbon House in the French Quarter - The Great Whisk(e)y Debate™ and Dinner (this is going to be much better than a political debate)! As part of  the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Dinner Series we'll be joining seventh generation Jim Beam master distiller, Fredrick “Fred” Booker Noe III as he goes head-to-head to debate the merits of Bourbon whiskey against an extraordinary group of ambassadors representing Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch, Canadian Club Whisky and Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey.

This promises to be a most spirited debate - Can't wait to learn about the rich heritage of each country’s spirits and sample whisk(e)y and whisk(e)y cocktails paired with an amazing meal from the Bourbon House. After trying out these delicious libations guests of the dinner will get to judge who wins. Keep you posted on which whisk(e)y wins the debate, and it sounds like an awful lot of fun getting to decide!

Check out some of these cocktails we'll be sampling - oh my - it's going to be a good time!
