Grateful to collaborate with such a creative, thoughtful, hardworking, fun, and brilliant woman. .

  • I’m still a brown spirits beginner, but I’m having such a wonderful time on my first trip to Kentucky Bourbon country and the @fourrosesbourbon distillery. 
I’ve tasted fermenting grain, explored the rickhouse and learned from Master Distiller Brent Elliott about the different yeast combos they use to achieve their spicy, sweet and fruity flavor profile. Small Batch Select is their newest baby. It uses 6 yeast strains and it’s rare— they make just 50 barrels a month. 
Get your hands on a bottle, you’ll be rewarded with 💯 proof spirit with notes of cherry, raspberry, plum, nutmeg, clove and mint. 🥃
Thanks for the invitation! @thebaddishgroup .

  • Just 2 more days til I get to uncork a mag of this expressive Stuller Vineyard Pinot Noir from @bohemewines. I think it’s one of the only 5 wines you need for Thanksgiving. Check out the blog post at #linkinbio for the other 4!🍷Thanks for asking @living_in_a_nutshell 😘
