Brand new Bourbon Tasting with RD1 Spirits

They are starting early - come on by!

Brand new Bourbon Tasting with RD1 Spirits
Friday, June 9th from 4:30 to 6:00pm
At the fabulously appointed (In)famous Bar
Located inside the Wine and Cheese Place
On Forsyth Blvd, in beautiful downtown Clayton

This Friday, we have the folks from RD! Spirits, from Lexington, KY in to taste their
brand, spanking new to St. Louis, range of Kentucky whiskies. We were impressed with their efforts and stoked that we could get them behind the bar pouring their wares.In 1865, the Ashland Distillery was established, the first to obtain a federally registered distillery license, and was assigned 
RD1 crafts impressive Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon to celebrate the firsts in our lives – those who were first to create, first to believe, first to remove barriers. Just like the gutsy mavericks who built Lexington’s first registered distillery in the late 1800s, RD1 was started in 2020 by modern-day entrepreneurs who have the spirit to dare, a gift all firsts possess.
RD1 Spirits Kentucky Straight Bourbon...$54.99 / 750ml
This traditional Kentucky Straight Bourbon invites you in with delicious aromas of vanilla wafers and roasted almonds. When sipping, orange flavors are followed by honeyed caramel, herbal tea and peppery oak. A long, warm finish ends dry with a spicy hint of ginger and cinnamon.

RD1 Spirits Finished with French Oak...$64.99 / 750ml
A rich mouthfeel with caramel front and center on the palate supported by dark cherries and sweet oak. Finishes with dark chocolate and dries to oak with a touch of smoke.
RD1 Spirits Finished with Brazilian Amburana Wood...$64.99 / 750ml
The best of baking spices – apple cinnamon, nutmeg and light brown sugar – come alive on the nose and are followed by pine, vanilla, peaches and apricots. Flavor galore with spice cake, and ginger snaps in a rich mouthfeel. Try a drop of water to open up hints of herbal black tea, dark berry jam and pineapple pepper. Finish is long and warm, and ends with allspice and sweet oak.
RD1 Spirits Double Finished in Oak Maple Barrels...$64.99 / 750ml
An undeniable burst of maple and butterscotch on the nose followed by lightly toasted caramel, roasted pecans and paprika. Its flavor boasts a delicate dance of maple goodness and black peppercorn spice. The finish is long, smooth and spicy with a light accent of toasted caramel at the end. Try this in an Old Fashioned but skip the simple syrup and just add more of this bourbon.
