Wine & Spirits

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.

2 parts Longbranch Bourbon

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
