Monday, May 15 | 5-8pm | ASW Distillery
Atlanta’s first whiskey collaboration is here, and you could be the proud owner of your very own badger-emblazoned, signed bottle of Monday Night Scottish-Style Single Malt Whiskey. The child of Monday Night’s brewmaster Adam Bishop and ASW Distillery’s head distiller Justin Manglitz, this special release single malt is the color of honey, with flavor notes reminiscent of almond, cookie dough and vanilla, finished with cherry, tobacco and smoke. Talk about a ride on the flavor train!
Tickets go for $62 and include three pours of any ASW Distillery liquor, a tour of the Fiddler Bourbon & Resurgens Rye distillery tour and a bottle of this limited edition whiskey. But only the first 50 bottles will be signed, so grab your tickets and get to the door early to grab yourself a bottle of Atlanta’s most coveted whiskey.
