Fancy joining Esquire for a night of easy drinking at The Draft House? Here's how you can.
Being told how to enjoy your favourite drink is like being told how you prefer to have your steak cooked: supremely irritating. Take the sweet, smoky tipple that is Buffalo Trace. Distilled on the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace has been making bourbon the same way for over 200 years, this straight bourbon whiskey is one of the most adaptable, quaffable spirits on the market.
Whether served straight over ice or forming the heart of a cocktail, its soft, easy character means that whichever way you choose to enjoy Buffalo Trace, you can be assured it will be the right way. A thoroughly modern spirit with a long, impressive history (Buffalo Trace was one of the few distilleries to continue production during the US Prohibition era, for “medicinal” purposes), we’re currently drinking ours chased with an ice-cold craft beer from small independent breweries – known as a Boilermaker.
Join us at The Draft House at London’s Tower Bridge for a unique Boilermaker Dinner on 21 February. The experts from Buffalo Trace will take you on a four-step tasting journey through their bourbon whiskeys, each one perfectly matched to US craft beers, during a delicious three-course dinner. Tickets are £30 but Esquire readers can attend for just £25, or £45 per pair. Register for tickets at buffalotrace.co.uk/esquirepromo
