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.

Ulysses, a New Hotel by Ash, Opens in Baltimore

Hotelier Ash welcomes its fourth hotel, Ulysses, to its collection. Situated in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, the 116-room hotel features an all-day café and late-night drinking parlor. The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design. The hotel earns its name, Ulysses, from a ship that brought Bavarian immigrants to Baltimore at the turn of the century. The name also pays homage to James Joyce’s legendary and revolutionary novel and to the Greek hero, Odysseus.
