A Gentleman’s Guide to the Holidays is here. This special feature showcases my top holiday gift ideas of the year. Take it from me– I’m a dude, and I keep it classy like Ron Burgundy. It’s my mission to help guide you through the madness of the holiday season with a collection of simple, manly, and sophisticated products for the gentlemen in your life.
Well folks, we’re getting down to the wire with holiday shopping. This is your last chance to get the refined man in your life something he’ll really enjoy. For this final edition of A Gentleman’s Guide to the Holidays, I’ve invited some of my favorite gentlemen to join me to converse, listen to music, and sip fine whiskeys from Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery.
On the menu are three of Tuthilltown’s Hudson Whiskeys- Baby Bourbon, Four Grain, and New York Corn.
With me to enjoy these bottles are Dan, Ben, Brian, and Ian- all seasoned whiskey drinkers and good pals. Needless to say, it wasn’t very difficult to get them over to my place to taste these Hudsons. We all chose our favorites for the night, but one thing we were all able to agree upon was that Tuthilltown’s Hudson whiskeys were top notch. “Sweet”, “tingly”, “robust”, and “not boozy” were all exclaimed over the course of the evening.
The first bourbon whiskey to be distilled in New York, Hudson Baby Bourbon is a single-grain bourbon made from 100% New York corn and aged in special small American Oak barrels. It’s mildly sweet, smooth, and warm, with hints of vanilla and caramel.
Corn, rye, wheat and malted barley come together in the Hudson Four Grain bourbon. The grains balance each other’s full flavors- combining the soft richness of corn, the sharp peppery notes of rye, all the smooth subtlety of wheat and the sweetness of malted barley.
Lastly, Hudson New York Corn Whiskey is an unaged sipping whiskey, made from 100% New York corn. I’ve always known this style of whiskey as moonshine- an American classic. Fun fact: It is also the foundation for the Hudson Baby Bourbon.
The great thing about giving Hudson whiskey as a gift this holiday season- there’s no need to go to the mall to get it. Just stop by the nearest fine liquor store and ask for Tuthilltown Spirits. Each bottle is hand waxed and numbered, which makes this the perfect gift. More information at tuthilltown.com.
