@WoodfordReserve Bourbon Tasting & Dinner at @SCKMidtown

sckmwoodfordSouth City Kitchen Midtown is excited to announce a night of premiere Woodford Reserve Bourbon tasting in the company of its master distiller, Chris Morris. We traveled to Woodford Reserve’s distillery in Kentucky to personally taste and select a unique, one-of-a-kind Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in commemoration of our 20th anniversary. This blend, available nowhere else in the world but Fifth Group Restaurants, will be featured at two special events on Thursday, October 17.

The night will begin as guests sip on samples of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon in the downstairs dining room from 5:30-7:00. Flavors of the bourbon will be highlighted by samplings of Southern-style hors d’oeurves including:

GRILLED SOUTHERN SHELL OYSTERS maple-bourbon-apple mignonette
BOURBON-CURED SALMON rye croutes, housemade lemon mascarpone and beet slaw
SMOKED PORK BELLY General Lee honey and benne seeds
ANTS-ON-A-LOG celery sticks filled with pimento cheese and topped with spiced pecans
BRAISED SHORT RIB SLIDERS on mini buns with smoked poblano ketchup and arugula

The cost of the bourbon tasting is $40 per person. To purchase tickets, click here.

The evening will continue with a private, four-course prix fixe dinner upstairs in the company of Mr. Morris.  Bourbon cocktail pairings will be served with the following menu items:

POACHED LOBSTER vanilla corn velvet, micro basil, popcorn
PECAN-SMOKED SCALLOP sorghum Kentuckyaki, seaweed salad, radishes
PORK BELLY creamed young collards, blood orange marmalade
VENISON SCHNITZEL green tomato chimmichurri, Red Mule grits
CIDER-BRAISED BEEF CHEEK mushroom-buttered egg noodles, rainbow carrot confit, horseradish crema

The cost of the dinner is $100 per person. To purchase tickets,  click here; however, you may also purchase tickets to both events for only $125.
