I attended An Evening of Traditional Beverages, an annual event at Homewood House, one of the gorgeous house museums here in Baltimore. This year’s party, which was a complete sell-out, featured BOURBON!
The event featured a lecture by Brooklyn-based writer Dane Huckelbridge, author of the new book Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit, who gave an entertaining history of the popular spirit, and shared a few stories of the pioneers who discovered the golden nectar, bottled it and passed it around for all to enjoy.
In addition, there were samples of more than a dozen different bourbons, from Woodford Reserve to Reservoir, from Makers Mark to Smooth Ambler. Each person could get small “shots” of any or all of the bourbons, and with this rogue’s gallery of friends pouring, how could I say no!
In addition, there was a great spread of farm-to-table locavore food by the newest restaurant the area, Parts & Labour, which is a restaurant, butcher shop and bar. They provided amazing charcuterie platters.
Lots of fun and a great cause!
