michter's bourbon & country ham


Our final event for the summer of 2017 was on the waterfront, at the Levee at the River House, and we had something very special happening:  A pairing of Michter's whiskeys with country ham and chocolate!

Michter's Master Distiller Pam Heilmann led us through a tasting of four of their expressions:  Small Batch Bourbon, Single Barrel Rye, Unblended American Whiskey and 10 Year Bourbon.

Steve Coomes, author of Country Ham:  A Southern Tradition of Hogs, Salt & Smoke, selected three mouth-watering gourmet country hams that were paired with the whiskeys.  To top it all off, was a delectable chocolate from Art Eatables.

We also enjoyed abundant appetizers created by Chef John Varenese, and of course awesome door prizes as always.
