We had a great night at Heritage Craft Butchers last participating in one of their Butchery Clinics.
We started with some charcuterie, then dinner of mushroom stuffed porchetta, bourbon cream mashed potatoes and maple bourbon glazed brussel sprouts. Then we moved on to the live butchery clinic, breaking down 1/2 a pig into all its cuts. Very interesting demonstration, chock full of interesting facts, tales, and fun anecdotes.
Oh, and there was much sharing of whiskey too! I brought 2018 THH, Master’s Keep Rye, Octomore 9.1 & 9.3, and Ardbeg Traigh Bhan. There was also Little Book 1 & 3, Maker’s 101, Weller Full Proof, Parker’s Heritage Heavy Char Rye, 1978 WT 101, Stagg Jr, and Old GrandDad 114. Great night with great people sharing whiskey & food, can’t ask for much more than that… cheers! 🥃
PS: if you haven’t been to Heritage, you owe it to yourself to get there, seriously, you deserve it… and don’t forget to tell them Pittsburgh Whiskey Friends sent you 😉
