Virtual Happy Hour With Old Dominick Distillery

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 4 mins read


For Episode 11 of Virtual Happy we headed down South to the Home of the Blues, Memphis, Tennessee, to spend a little time with Drew Wooten, bar manager and master mixologist at Old Dominick Distillery


The story of Old Dominick Distillery dates all the way to 1880 and a unique family recipe for a very special bourbon-based cordial. Today, they’re an award-winning independent distillery that’s proud to have Tennessee’s first female Master Distiller at the helm of their craft spirit operation. 


When it came time for the tasting, Drew started off by sharing their Old Dominick Gin.


“We like to call it Southern,” explains Drew when it comes to the gin’s particular style. 


“It’s citrusy, it’s floral, it’s really nice,” Drew says.


Then it’s on to Old Dominick Distillery’s Huling Station Bourbon Whiskey


“It has a very high rye content for a bourbon. About 44%,” Drew tells us. 


“Great on it’s own, but the rye really makes it spicier,” he says. 


Now it’s cocktail time! And Drew’s got two real beauties for us, the Grapefruit Gin Fizz and Grapefruit Smash


So, even if you weren’t able to be there with us LIVE on Facebook, you can still enjoy our trip to the Birthplace of Rock n’ Roll, and visit with Drew Wooten of Old Dominick Distillery


It’s Virtual Happy Hour presented by Spirit Hub - the next best thing to being there!
