Here's one for you guys,
I hope to open a new bar in about 6 months and would like your advice on stocking policy. I have room for 6 American Whisk(e)ys, these must be commercially viable, diverse in style and good in quality (bit of a desert island whisky question i guess.) and not too hard to get hold of because importing stuff to the U.K. especially is expensive.
At the moment I'm listing;
Buffalo Trace, (House Pour)
Makers Mark, (as a benchmark back bar bourbon)
Woodford Reserve, (smoother and sweeter)
Jack Daniels Single Barrel, (Because there's always a JD drinker)
Wild Turkey Rye (for classic sazerac's, manhattan's and old fashioned's)
& provisionally the 101 as well ( something with a bit of kick)
though I'm tempted by Bakers & Bookers as well.
Before anyone says it, I find Stagg impossible to find commercially here
P.s. I could probably be talked into more than 6
