The weather is getting colder, kids are back in school and the dog days of summer have come to an end. Americans wait patiently each week for their football team’s day to play, all while dreaming of the accompaniments that go hand in hand with the game. Make a new addition to your bar cart and sip on something different this season with Longbranch Bourbon.
Actor Matthew McConaughey and Wild Turkey master distiller Eddie Russell carefully crafted the golden bourbon with Texas Mesquite, oak charcoals and hints of pear, citrus and caramel to produce a bourbon the way McConaughey enjoys it most — neat. A bourbon sure to warm you up at a chilly autumn tailgate or in front of a screen at home with friends, Longbranch Bourbon is sure to be a hit for the big game.
The smoky, smooth, 8-year-aged bourbon is perfect to drink as is or in delicious cocktails. Try these two concoctions created by master bartender Benny Hurwitz to give your next viewing party the class it deserves.

Time to Unwind
I recently returned from my second annual golf trip to Kiawah Island, where we enjoyed fantastic weather. Upon arrival, the group met for lunch at The Ryder Cup Bar, located at The Ocean Course, one of the top-ranked courses in the country. Luckily, we were not playing that day, as the wind whipped up and brought unscheduled douses of rain. As one of the caddies told me, wind gusts of 35 mph made the course unplayable. But some players braved the conditions as we sat comfortably inside enjoying our first lunch of the trip while chairs cascaded outside and players tried to keep their shots on track.
