Ilana Weiss, President of the new wWw Boston Chapter, Goes Whiskey Hopping around America!
On a recent multi-city trip, Ilana Weiss, President of our new wWw Boston Chapter, decided to take advantage of being somewhere new to check out a few new Whiskey bars around the country!
She started off in Dallas, at The Dram.
"The Dram, in Dallas; Knox Henderson neighborhood. One of my favorite pours, homegrown in Texas, Rebecca Creek Whiskey."
Then it was off to sunny L.A.!
"On to L.A. to Seven Grand. One of the largest Whisk(e)y selections on the West Coast. If you go, head to the back to their speakeasy called Jackalope where they keep their rare and limited edition bottles. You need a ladder to get to the top shelf. Need we say more?"
Final stop, Chicago, IL, where she hit up two different bars.
"There were so many great whiskey bats here, but I chose the two with the most extensive menus: Fountainhead and Delilah's.
Fountainhead has a great whiskey menu, but all six pages of their whisky were fantastic. My favorite of the night was from the Highlands area, AnCnoc; a surprisingly peaty whisky from this area.
Delilah's has more than 666 whiskeys. If you go, ask for Eric. He put a great flight together for me, and suggested Glendronach as one of his favorites. Nice choice Eric!"
Finally back in Boston, Ilana is looking forward to planning wWw Boston's first event. If you're in the Boston area, sign up for our mailing list, and stay tuned!
