Yesterday was literally hot as hell, but that didn’t stop me or the hundreds of whiskey fans from stopping by Loose Nuts Cycles to check out the Bulleit Whiskey trailer!  The little guy is called “Woody” and was originally designed for the Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift Guide and retails at more than $150,000.  Created by iconic designer Brad Ford, the Woody is cast from repurposed Bulleit barrels and features a fully stocked bar of Bulleit Bourbon, Rye and 10-Year.  It’s been featured on The Today Show, CNN and more. Here’s my coverage along with some recipes from the event-

The Bulleit Bourbon Orange Cruiser and Bulleit Rye Smash cocktails are perfect for the Summer due to they’re fruity, light taste and drinkability.
