Special to The Log

Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Destin will host a bourbon blending party with Timber Creek Distillery from 6-8 p.m. May 4.

Timber Creek’s distillers will guide attendees through the bourbon blending process using their Bourbon Blending Kit. Timber Creek’s Florida Bourbon recently received an “A” rating from Whiskey Culture, a well-respected whiskey review website with over 28,000 followers on Facebook 

Guests can taste, tweak, and perfect a customized bourbon blend according to their palate using different amounts of single grain whiskeys made from corn, rye, wheat, and barley. Craft cocktails utilizing Timber Creek’s whiskeys, bourbon, vodka and rums will also be served.

Ruth’s Chris will serve heavy hors d'oeuvres in the courtyard as musician Tom Devoursney plays live. Tickets for the bourbon blending party are priced at $75 per person.

“It has been great to see how many local restaurants have been excited about our products and willing to support a local distillery,” said Timber Creek Distillery co-owner Camden Ford. “Making spirits unique to the Florida Panhandle is our passion, so we are always happy to share that with others — especially being able to do it at such an esteemed establishment as Ruth’s Chris.
