If whiskey is your tipple of choice — or you sometimes find yourself hankering after a vermouth cocktail — then make sure you pull up a stool at the Buffalo Bourbon Empire, popping up at The Looking Glass Cocktail Club in Shoreditch during London Cocktail Week (2-7 October).
With over 50 bourbons behind the bar, a chance to try the exclusive 2017 Antique Collection, (available nowhere else in the UK FYI), and a range of vintage cocktails available courtesy of Antica Formula Vermouth, we reckon this has got to be the ultimate London destination for lovers of American whiskey and expertly mixed cocktails.
As part of the bourbon extravaganza, Buffalo Trace is hosting a series of intimate tasting evenings (usually £10) but this year, lucky fans of the strong stuff are in for a treat as the Buffalo Bourbon Empire is giving away a pair of tickets to its Buffalo Trace Distillery tasting session, taking place on 3 October.
Whether you're a novice to the spirit or a seasoned drinker, this masterclass will get you up to speed on all things bourbon. First up, you'll learn about the 200-year-old history of the distillery before swigging your way through a variety of whiskeys, including a White Dog, the latest addition to the Buffalo brand. The session is rounded off with a taster from the Antique Collection and includes a delicious cocktail using Vermouth — a best friend to Bourbon. Over the years Buffalo Trace has racked up more awards than any other distillery in the world, so your taste buds are in safe hands.
