Bourbon & Whiskey Guild
When we opened the first Walnut Grill restaurant in St. Louis, one of the things we wanted to focus on was an expanded offering of Bourbons and Whiskeys to include some of the harder to find bottles. In addition, over the past few years we held bourbon and whiskey tasting dinners that included lineups of five different ages of Pappy Van Winkle, Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, Whistle Pig, Heaven Hill, and other noteworthy collections. Everyone attending these events enjoyed the tastings, the four course dinner pairings, the guest speakers, and the socialization with likeminded people.
To further our growth and focus on fine Bourbon & Whiskeys in our restaurants we are establishing the Walnut Grill Bourbon and Whiskey Guild. Both our guests and team members have developed a passion for understanding and appreciating America’s native spirit. Walnut Grill is committed to the education of our bartenders & servers on Bourbon & Whiskey and will continue to source rare and interesting spirits for our guests. This includes a plentiful pipeline of WG Private Select Barrels which we hand pick multiple times each year.
We think the establishment of this Guild will help us better engage and communicate with our Bourbon and Whiskey customers by providing advance knowledge of future tastings, barrel selections, retail offerings of hard to fine bottles and other special bourbon and whiskey events.Join the Bourbon & Whiskey Guild Now
