Do you know what America's Native Spirit is?
It's not Tonto or Geronimo. That would be wrong. America's Native Spirit is bourbon, the whisky distilled in America. Some might claim bourbon is whisky made only in Kentucky, but Congress decreed that whisky distilled anywhere in America, made with at least 51 percent corn, rye, wheat, malted barley, or malted rye grain, and aged in charred new oak casks can be called bourbon, so we're going with that.
If you're a bourbon lover and haven't made it to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, you should plan to take a tour of the bourbon offerings over at Husk. For Bourbon Heritage Month, they're pouring some finely crafted, small-batch spirits at discounted prices. So far, they've featured Maker's Mark 46 for $7, Basil Hayden for $9, and Old Weller Antique and Johnny Drum Private Stock for $6.
Follow Husk on Twitter to find out their daily offering.
Any bourbon goes quite nicely with a hand-crafted charcuterie plate, a skillet of cornbread, or the smoky Husk cheeseburger. General Manager Dan Latimer also suggests trying a dessert to go with your drink. Sounds like a perfect way to wrap up a Restaurant Week night out to us.
