Yo ho ho and a bottle of bourbon! Toast to National Bourbon Day June 14 with bourbon selects from some of our favorite Raleigh bartenders and local bourbon aficionados. 

Ian Murray, Foundation

wild turkey bourbon

“My favorite right now is Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit single-barrel bourbon—it’s the bougie version of the OG Wild Turkey 101.”

Clovis LaCour, Dram & Draught 

David Nicholson bourbon

“I really love David Nicholson Reserve from Lux Row Distillers—it’s 100 proof and a great bang for the buck at around $30 a bottle.”

Genni Dupree (@bourbonchic10), Wake County ABC

Pinhook bourbon

“I have three: Yellowstone, Daviess County Cabernet Sauvignon Finish Bourbon, Pinhook Bourbon.”

Dug Wheeler, Atlantic Lounge

Eagle rare bourbon

“My favorite bottle would have to be Eagle Rare 10 Year.”

Johnny Berry, Whiskey Kitchen 

Nikka from the Barrel bourbon

“I am a new fan of Nikka From the Barrel. Nikka has been producing whiskeys for years, and only recently have I been able to get this expression (limited availability in Raleigh). This whiskey is full and rich, and comes in at a little over 100 proof. I waited four years to find it—and it was worth it.”
