Spirits & Dining Guided Tasting Experience to be Held Thursday, June 9th at  Bourbon & Banter

Bourbon & Banter, the eclectic speakeasy located in the underground level of The Statler hotel in downtown Dallas, has long been acclaimed for its extensive library of spirits and masterful mixologists. Now, the iconic hideaway is inviting some of the country’s leading distillers to share their wares in a monthly series of tasting events called The Pour: An Underground Curated Spirits & Culinary Tasting Experience. The third of these events, at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 9th, will feature the collection of Scotland’s Aberfeldy Distillery.

Known as the golden dram, Aberfeldy Single Malt Highland Scotches are renowned for their honeyed finishes. The distillery, founded in 1898, sources its water from a stream famed for its deposit of alluvial gold. Generous 2-ounce tastings will be served alongside a custom culinary complement prepared by The Statler’s Executive Chef Joel Harloff.

This exclusive event has limited seating available. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
