I’m happy to report that our campaign asking Woodford Reserve Bourbon to publicly disavow an affront to mixology made in their name has reached the ears of those at the company itself.
I received the following correspondence from the good people at Woodford, who are, apparently, as appalled as the rest of us at the maltreatment of their delicious spirits and maligning of the good name of the Mint Julep.
(Official correspondence after the break:)
While the excitement of adventure is enough to keep us going out, the pleasure of a properly provisioned outing adds the gentlemen to the adventure. I truly felt like a gent when sipping a gin and tonic, ice clinking and lime floating, while enjoying a platter of cured sausages, pate, cheese, olives and a crusty french baguette. I felt like a gentlemen adventurer as I enjoyed those things in the ruins atop Ghost Mountain.
The basic ideas of preparation are as follows. These are ideas from which you can build plans. Plans which you can carry out to glorious success!
