Time-Honored Kentucky Bourbon Comes to the Fairview Dining Room
Experience Woodford Reserve’s two centuries of expertise at an exclusive dining event
DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 3, 2018 – Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, the premier AAA Four Diamond luxury inn and golf club located on the campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, will host a Woodford Reserve Bourbon Dinner featuring selections from the one-of-a-kind distillery on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 6:45 p.m. This masterfully created Kentucky favorite is sure to enrich your palate.
Kentucky Straight Bourbon enthusiasts are invited to join Executive Chef Jason Cunningham for a masterfully created multi-course menu composed of locally sourced, farm fresh dishes complemented by the evening’s specially curated bourbon cocktails from Woodford Reserve. The thoughtfully paired menu and Woodford Reserve samplings are guaranteed to give your taste buds a flavorful punch.
Woodford Reserve Distillery is one of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on these same hallowed grounds that years later Master Distiller James Christopher Crow perfected his whiskey-making methods, which today have become common practice, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation.
Woodford Reserve’s distillery is home to a 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, iconic copper pot stills and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. The distillery also boasts one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world, ensuring every drop seeps into the charred and toasted white oak, giving Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor, perfect for all occasions.
The Woodford Reserve Bourbon Dinner is hosted by the Fairview Dining Room, a AAA Four Diamond rated restaurant, and costs $89 per person, or $79 for Executive Club members, which includes the bourbon pairings. The event will take place on the Fairview Dining Room Patio, weather permitting.
