Scottsdale's Talking Stick Resort Makes Its Own Specialty Bourbon
Talking Stick Resort in Arizona has bragging rights not many other resorts can claim. This luxury resort has its own bourbon. It's officially called the Woodford Reserve Talking Stick Resort Personal Selection Bourbon--a mouthful of a name. The beverage, which will be sold in the resort’s Shadows Lounge, an indoor cigar bar, will debut on September 14.
The group of Talking Stick representatives who helped create the bourbon visited Kentucky’s Woodford Reserve Distillery where they worked with Chris Morris, master distiller. We are sure that an appropriate amount of tasting and mixing occurred, all in the name of providing a quality product for Talking Stick guests.
On the September 14th debut, guests can sample the bourbon during three tastings scheduled at 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., and 8:30 p.m.
In honor of the specialty bourbon which is said to have hints of cocoa, citrus and a little spice, the resort has added eight specialty drinks to its bar menu including a latte, a Manhattan, and a shot, to accompany the bourbon.
Rooms at Talking Stick start at $116, which may be necessary with all the drinking we're sure will be happening on September 14th.
