Toasted Brown Rice Whiskeys

Basil Hayden Toast is a super-premium Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that challenges what people know about American whiskey and it invites all sorts of drinkers, new and familiar, to experience what it has to offer. Rather than being made with regular rye grain, the product is made with brown rice grown in the United States, which is said to offer "a hint of sweetness and a touch less spice, while a secondary toasted barrel finish draws out notes of caramelized sugar and toasted wood." After aging, the toasted brown rice is blended with more brown rice bourbon that has been rested in level four char barrels for an even more complex flavor profile.

Los Angeles Sour

A modern sipper for Southern California. In an effort to create a cocktail that would represent Los Angeles, Fellow bar director Adam Fournier looked to the Los Angeles Cocktail from The Savoy Cocktail Book for inspiration. With lemon, whisky, sugar, egg, and a dash of Italian vermouth, “nothing about it reads as LA,” says Fournier. “I ditched the light blended whiskey for a house blend of whiskies that amplified those flavors. Next, the sweetener was changed to piloncillo (aka panela) sugar. It’s an unrefined cane sugar very typical of Latin America that plays into the heritage of Los Angeles while adding in an incredibly earthy robust flavor to compliment the whiskey blend. After that the whole egg was dropped in favor of an egg white for that more traditional frothy, whiskey sour texture. Finally, the original splash of vermouth is turned into a vermouth reduction that is layered on the bottom of the glass. This creates more of a complex mulled wine flavor and because the rest of the drink is layered over this reduction, it creates a sour that evolves over time while looking like a beautiful Los Angeles sunset.”

The Mysterious Story Behind The World's Oldest Bottle Of Bourbon

In the world of rare whiskey and bourbon, an outstanding bottle that's been aged for a considerable period of time tends to fetch the highest prices. For example, the Macallan Fine and Rare 60 Year Old auctioned in 2019, took the title of most expensive whiskey in the world going for just under $2 million (via Elite Traveler). While the priciest bottles tend to be attention-grabbing, there is one bottle that is just as interesting thanks to its puzzling history. In April 2021, Skinner Auctioneers opened up what they called "the oldest currently known whiskey bottle" to bids (via Food & Wine).
