    Sazerac

    I'm watching and old black and white movie titled "Gold is Where You Find It", and the time setting is during the gold rush days. The main character walks into a San Francisco bar and you guessed it there was an advertisement of Sazerac! The movie was produced in the late 30's.

    Excellant link Chuck! I had already been to the link on the history of, but did not know about the others. This is why this forum is so good. It is people like you that help to make this site what it is. I ordered a bottle from Lipmans link to Randalls. I had been searching for a place to buy a bottle in or near MO. My brother helped me to find it through Lipman's link. Thanks again to you, Lipman, and a wonderful young brother who takes his bourbon very seriously.

    as a side note, one of the more interesting cocktails I've had (in New Orleans) was a Sazerac, in the Sazerac bar, minus the absynthe that is.

    Re: Sazerac

    Guess what I have learned! The original Sazerac was supplied with a rye whiskey from Kentucky. This particular distillery is now known as Buffalo Trace. The Sazerac company has owned the Buffalo Trace Distillery for about a decade. Said distillery is now supplying the 18 year old Rye Whiskey that is being used in the premium version of the Sazerac Cocktail. Said whiskey was just announced as Whiskey of The Year by The Malt Advocate. Just thought I would let you know.

    Are you saying there are records indicating that OFC, or whatever Buffalo Trace was called at the time, was supplying the Sazerac Coffee House/Sazerac House with rye whiskey in the 1870s, when the recipe changed from a brandy base to a rye whiskey base?

    And Ken wrote: "Said whiskey was just announced as Whiskey of The Year by The Malt Advocate."

    That's great. Huge congratulations.

    Re: Sazerac

    Hey, my brother found a 70's bottle of Sazerac cocktail. I cannot say I really liked it but it was a unique experience. I had a cold at the time and after consuming 3/4ths of the bottle I have to say I felt pretty good. I think I still prefer the Sazerac straight with water on the side. What do you all think?

    Although straight whiskey will stay good forever in the bottle, pre-mixed cocktails and other low proof spirits-based beverages don't hold up as well. You actually should be cautious about drinking anything under 80 proof that has been sitting around for more than a few years.
