Thursday: Moore & Giles Trunk Show featuring Bulleit Bourbon

Some people think leather goes well with denim. We think it goes well with whiskey.

Stop by Wingtip this Thursday for a trunk show with Moore & Giles, one of our favorite leather-goods makers. The show will feature a preview of Moore & Giles’ latest offerings–not to mention, cocktail samples from Bulleit Frontier Whiskey

Thursday, 10/18, 5-8pm.

— ABOUT MOORE & GILES —

Founded in 1933 in Lynchburg, Va., Moore & Giles is dedicated to designing and developing the most innovative and luxurious natural leathers for the high-end hospitality, aviation and residential interior design industries. In January 2007, we introduced a collection of leather bags and accessories as an additional avenue to showcase the inherent beauty and timeless appeal of our natural leathers. Sold at fine retailers across the country and online on the Moore & Giles Web site, this collection, just like our leather offerings, is constantly evolving.

— ABOUT BULLEIT FRONTIER WHISKEY —

In the 1830s, as a tavern keeper in Louisville, Kentucky, Augustus Bulleit set himself on a mission: to create a bourbon unique in flavor. After countless small-batch trials, he came upon a bourbon with the character he had been seeking. While transporting barrels of his bourbon from Kentucky to New Orleans, Augustus Bulleit vanished. What happened to him is still unknown, and his creation could have passed into history as well. But after more than a century, in 1987, his great-great-grandson Tom Bulleit stepped in. A lawyer by profession, Tom’s lifelong dream had been to revive the family‚Äôs bourbon legacy, started more than 150 years ago. Bulleit Bourbon is still distilled and aged in small batches. Kentucky limestone-filtered water provides the foundation for the bourbon’s character, while charred American oak barrels lend a smoky backbone.
