"You think you know Dickel?"  Why? Because they're raising the bar in more ways than one and they came to San Francisco to show us. 8566728957_705ba0a0d6 At a recent event in San Francisco, Master Distiller John Lunn came to introduce one way they are raising the bar, by introducing George Dickel Rye Whisky. The new rye-based spirit is based on a 95% rye and 5% malted barley mash, which is chilled and then charcoal-filtered prior to aging for 5-6 years in new oak barrels. 8566727283_48e451690c
After arriving in New Orleans around midnight Wednesday night, we checked in and headed out for a drink. We are in New Orleans at Tales of the Cocktail after all.  We spent a few hours seeing friends and enjoying a couple of drinks but headed to bed around 3am in order to get ready for the first full day at Tales. 10:00 AM - Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey Tasting Event First stop of the day - a fun Irish Breakfast with entertainment, tasty food and of course tastings of Kilbeggan. An Irish Coffee and an Irish Breakfast Shot later we kissed the blarney stone and headed out.

10:30 AM - Checked in and picked up my Media badge and event tickets and visited the swag room for some samples (40 pounds worth).
