Spur's Six-Course Bulleit Bourbon Tasting Dinner

We’re excited to introduce Spur’s first tasting dinner August 21 with Bulleit Bourbon. The details: We’re working on a 6-course tasting menu paired with hand-crafted Bulleit Bourbon spirit and cocktails. Distiller Tom Bulleit, the great-great-grandson of Augustus Bulleit who created the 175 year-old recipe for the award-winning Bulleit Bourbon, will be on hand to guide the spirit tastings. We’ll pair Spur’s New American cuisine with Tom’s oaky, smoky and smooth Kentucky bourbon.

Spur’s menu will accent some of the notes in Bulleit such as vanilla, honey and oak. In a subtle homage to Southern cooking, we’re choosing local ingredients to complement the bourbon. Corn, orange, cinnamon, vanilla and peaches all work great. Our bartender David Nelson is crafting a series of cocktails showcasing the bourbon.

Bulleit Bourbon is russet in color with a rich, oaky aroma. The dry, clean flavor is mellow and smooth. It delivers a wonderfully complex taste with hints of vanilla and honey and a long smoky finish. Bulleit Bourbon consistently wins medals and accolades at the most prestigious sprits competition in America: the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. In 2007, Bulleit Bourbon earned its second Gold Medal and fourth consecutive medal, beating other well known premium bourbons including Knob Creek.
