It’s the perfect time of year to have a grand ol’ party – sit under the sun, sip on mojitos and lemonade – bask in the weather that’s still cool enough to stand for more than five minutes. What better way to do this (ok, besides the beach, which we don’t have) than with an old-fashioned Kentucky-derby style shindig? To celebrate their new specially-created Woodford Reserve Bourbon Whiskey, the J.W. Marriott Camelback Inn will have just such a southern-style affair from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 26 at BLT Steak. The resort’s Beverage Director, Trudy Thomas, visited her home state of Kentucky to work alongside Woodford Reserve’s Master Distiller Chris Morris and blend a personalized batch of the whiskey just for Camelback Inn. According to Morris, what makes this batch so unique is that the Camelback’s version is spicier than the original, creating a “less rounded flavor” that’s “much more focused on the palette in an exciting and dynamic way.”
Introduced by a horse-drawn carriage, this one-of-a-kind selection will debut at the party April 26, accompanied with BLT Steak appetizers and mint juleps.
