Chicago Branch

Hello Chicago Bourbon Women!

Spring is in full swing in Chicago with baseball season! What better way to celebrate than with the Baseball Sour Bourbon Cocktail by our friends at Bourbon & Banter.

In April, Bourbon Women members learned secrets to cooking with our Whisky Acres Distilling Co. single barrel pick bourbon at Binny's Highland Park. Chef Scott showed guests how to make Fried Bourbon-Pickled Cauliflower, Grilled Bourbon Marinated Flank Steak, and Bourbon Old Fashioned Creme Brulee (as in the cocktail). Yum! Contact Binny's to get a bottle of our Bourbon Women Chicago Whisky Acres hand pick while they last!

Bourbon Women was also featured in the Binny's Barrel to Bottle podcast featuring myself and industry experts like Al Young and Sonja Kassebaum.
