6 P.M. SOCIAL HOUR:
Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres
Jim Beam Black
Elegant. Smooth. Refined. That’s what aging will do to a bourbon. A premium bourbon with a more flavorful character. Meant to be sipped and savored. Our premium 86-proof, extra aged bourbon spends twice as long in white oak barrels than original Jim Beam®. It’s those extra years of aging that give Jim Beam Black® its full bodied flavor with smooth caramel and warm oak notes.
7 P.M. START WITH:
Truffled Sea Scallops
Served on Roasted Parsnip Parmesan Puree and Micro Greens
Served With ~ Jim Beam Signature Craft – Quarter Cask
Introducing Jim Beam Signature Craft Quarter Cask. Base bourbon finished with a variety of fine quarter cask bourbons, all aged at least four years in smaller barrels. Boasting notes of vanilla, oak, and a hint of caramel, this spirit should be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
Smoked Salmon Salad
Mustard Greens with Goat Cheese, Whiskey Soaked Craisins, Roasted Pecans and Champaign Vinaigrette
Served With ~ Jim Beam Signature Craft – 12 Year
Introducing the Jim Beam Signature Craft 12 Year. Our hand crafted bourbon is made from the finest ingredients available to our master distillers, and carries notes of caramel, deep vanilla and oak. Never compromised, this spirit should be savored neat or on the rocks.
Blue Cheese and Bourbon Candied Bacon Bone-In Ribeye
Served with Brown Sugar and Honey Whipped Yams
Served with ~ Jim Beam Single Barrel
For those who take their bourbon a bit more seriously, there’s Jim Beam® Single Barrel. Our master distillers carefully select each barrel by hand—less than one percent are chosen for Jim Beam® Single Barrel—ensuring the highest quality and craft. No two barrels are the same, and each is individually bottled, labeled and hand-numbered so that its heritage is unquestionable. Every glass is full-bodied and smooth with attributes of oak, vanilla and caramel. Sip it neat or savor it on the rocks. After all, it’s some of the very best bourbon our family has ever produced.
Bourbon Apple Bread Pudding
Fresh Whipped Cream and Southern Praline Sauce
Served with ~ Jim Beam Signature Craft – Brandy Finished
The first rollout in Jim Beam’s premium Signature Craft series, this Bourbon is finished with Spanish brandy. It’s delicious; dried fruit, vanilla and praline notes are chased by a long finish that winds into ginger and cinnamon. It grows richer and fruiter the longer it’s allowed to open in the glass.
$74.95 per person (plus tax & Gratuity) ~ includes 2 Hand-Rolled Cigars
