Bourbon Tasting Barrel of Fun

3359 Park Street, Park Street East of Broadway

By Lisa Morefield, Staff Writer

Grove City Town Center, home of the acclaimed Wine and Arts Festival, is hosting another can’t-miss event on Saturday, August 14, 2021, 3pm to 10pm on the corner of Arbutus and Park Street: the annual Bourbon Tasting. Bourbon tasting is experiencing increased interest. The Grove City Town Center venue is a great place to be a bourbon-tasting beginner, with eight samples for just 30 dollars. Attendees can learn what they like from several varieties before investing in an entire bottle.

Planning to come, but new to this? You might benefit from some bourbon basics. A whiskey is deemed to be worthy of the name “bourbon” when it is made from at least 51% corn, which provides sweetness. It also includes rye or barley grains. No other additions but water, used to achieve the appropriate alcohol proof, is permitted. Bourbon also achieves this high standard whiskey quality because it is aged in new, oak-charred barrels for at least two years, some only in Kentucky. This whiskey can be mixed with soft drinks, with other mixers as in the Mint Julep, or is smooth enough to slide down all alone! Bourbon is decidedly American, rich with our country’s history and craftsmanship.

 

 

Save the date and become an official taster of this American tradition. See you on August 14, 2021, from 3 to 10 pm!

Tickets are $30 for 8 tickets and come with a cup for tasting.

Most bourbons are one ticket per tasting but there are some that will be a higher ticket cost per tasting.

The Bourbon list !

As many of you may or may not know, high end bourbon is unfortunately very difficult to  locate and procure. We have done our due diligence to find the high end bourbons but have met with dead ends even ar far as traveling to areas we have never gone before to purchase bourbon. With that said we have decided to offer what we can but to also capitalize on the areas craft distilleries. Yes, the aficionados will probably be disappointed but that is beyond our control this year.
