As we finished up lunch at ABC kitchen, Jason mentioned that he’d wanted to try Great Jones Distillery, as it’s the only whiskey distillery in Manhattan.
He teased that I might not have enough time to visit it – due to my flight later in the evening. However, through Uber, all things are possible.
So, after a quick ride down the street, we were at Great Jones.
Now, Great Jones is absolutely beautiful. It reminded me of what I loved about my tour of The Sazerac House in New Orleans, Louisiana a few years ago. I loved the vast expanse of the space and how beautiful it was. The restaurant was on the first floor. A private speakeasy in the basement. However, what we came for – the cocktail lounge – was on the second floor.
Settling at the bar, I ordered the THREE SPIRIT TASTING (Great Jones Straight Bourbon, Four Grain Bourbon, and Rye Whiskey)
Of the three of them, I would say that the one I liked the most was the Four Grain Bourbon. Then, after that the Great Jones Straight Bourbon. With the Rye being the last.
