Mine gold on World Whiskey Day

Image: GOLD BAR whiskey

This weekend marks the third Saturday in May, and that means one thing: World Whiskey Day! If there was any day to showcase your collection of whiskeys (or whiskies if you're in a country without a letter "e" in it), Saturday is it. Highlight whiskey cocktails on your menu, and shine a spotlight on your super premium, rare and otherwise special whiskeys. Enhance your food menu with glazes, cooking liquids and desserts made with whiskey. Go out of your mind with whiskey recipes, specials and promotions.

As inspiration and some assistance for World Whiskey Day success we're sharing recipes from GOLD BAR premium blend, gold finished whiskey, an exhibitor at the 2017 Nightclub & Bar Show in Las Vegas. GOLD BAR actually takes a journey similar to that of the gold hunters who crossed America seeking their fortunes, beginning with grains from the heartland before being blended in California. The liquid is even finished in a gold-plated barrel. Every bottle - which is an undeniable attention grabber on any back bar - is individually numbered and features a solid brass "Lady of Fortune" coin embedded in it.

Cheers!
