    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    Wife and I decided to watch Mad Men since so many have prasied it (love Netflix streaming). Got through the firs couple of episodes last night in season 1 and while I saw a lot of decanters I only noticed one label and I could not identify it.

    The show does bring back old memories of sitting around a confernce table, everyone smoking, and having a drink at lunch. I'd bet a lot of younger viewers don't even believe that occurred.

    Nah, they don't believe us, but that's to be expected as they've gained so much wisdom in their 20 something years of existence.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    Mad Men seems to show a lot of Canadian Club (at least to my recollection). Just as awesome as the booze-filled offices, are the cigarette-smoking doctor doing examinations, and the kids playing with dry-cleaning bags from season one!

    Canadian Club is the one I notice most and it seems they refer to it as "rye".

    Seagram's 7 is mentioned later, as characters drink 7 and 7's.

    Yes, Seagrams 7, which also would have been period correct.

    Although not exactly a bourbon,but yesterday as I was watching a re-run of Bizarre foods, I saw Mr. Julian Van Winkle the 3rd talking with Adam Zimmern at an exclusive dinner party in a restaurant in Louisville,they did not introduce him ,but it was him.Thought it was worth the mention.

    I expect Zimmerman's idea of tasting Bourbon is licking a barrel stave.

    You are right! Saw the same show as they were eating a soup with some blood cake. Took me by surprise since it was supposed to be a gathering of family/close friends. Maybe so, but what a coincidence ...
