Since bourbon and barbecue are inherently related, Percy Street owners Michael Solomonov, Steve Cook and Erin O’Shea want their own private stock of the precious Kentucky export. And they are working with Four Roses Distillery to get it. But before they opt in and purchase a hulking cask of the stuff, they want to be certain its the best possible bourbon they can get their hands on. To do that, they’re hosting a tasting tonight with “Mr. Four Roses” himself, master distiller Jim Rutledge. He’s bringing along samples poured straight from the barrels at Four Roses’ HQ in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Guest will have the opportunity to taste the samples and discuss them with their maker. At the end of the night, the whiskey that’s found to be the most palatable will be the one the Percy Street crew purchases. Space is limited, so RSVP for the tasting at
