I am going to make mint juleps tommorrow and was looking for a Bourbon Whiskey. Anyone have one they use? I know Dana lists them as being safe in her new book...but I still have to check on brands. E-mailed a few but haven't heard yet. Thanks! :P

I don't drink bourbon, but I've cooked with Jim Beam with excellent results.

I've heard good things about Evan Williams and Wild Turkey, as well.

My personal favorites are

Booker's

or

Basil Hayden


They are both premium boubons and have a smoother taste than Jim Beam (not that there is anything wrong with Beam)...

I forgot to mention, I'm in the south. Premium bourbons are for pansies :P

Just kidding. :)

HI
I am not a drinker per say....but i do love my 'Calvert's Extra' I have looked and looked on web sites and can't find if's it's gluten-free. I have seen on sites that Segrams is gluten-free. now what about irish Mist? Don't know if this will help jenvan as i don't know the difference between whisky, burbon, but think that my blended burbon is milder and might not be what she needs/
Richard any help here?
thank

(Judy HI!)


I don't know much about whiskeys...the recipes I found for juleps called for bourbon whiskey...that's all I know. :) I tried to do a little reading...but didn't learn much :huh: If anyone has more info, I would love to hear it!

Like I said, I used to love scotch...and would love to "replace" it with something. I wondered about Brandy, but didn't know where to start there...

All bourbon is whiskey, but all whiskey is not bourbon.

They are all aged in Oak barrels, but bourbon is aged in barrells that have been charred first. Bourbon must also be made from a certain percentage of corn in the mash. Over 50% I think. Most of it comes from Kentucky.

Whiskey, I believe, is made more from rye than corn. Jack Daniels is whiskey, not bourbon.

Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, and Evan Williams is all definitely bourbon, and not using good Kentucky bourbon in a mint julep would be a sacrelige. Especially close to derby time ;)

Derby time...That's right--aren't you a "southerner?" :D

Oh and duh--just looked back up top of thread, where you say you are a southerner... oops :blink:

Jack Daniels. They say right on their website that they're gluten-free! Nothing like a good Jack and Coke! How's that for a ladylike drink? :lol: It was a happy day when I found out that my favorite alcoholic beverage was also gluten-free!

Makers Mark is the finest bourbon I've ever had. They don't advertise much so you may not have heard of them but, trust me, it's some smoooooooooth stuff!
