The Mixing Glass Mention in Orange Coast Magazine

the-mixing-glass

Bourbon is one of America’s most storied, complex, and fun spirits. Using craft spirit specialist Chris Dion of Young’s Market (and The Mixing Glass) as a guide on my boozy vision quest, I set out to do some afternoon “palate validation” using Fred Minnick’s book, “Bourbon Curious,” while raiding the Dion family liquor cabinet—a hutch filled with more spirits than a Ghostbusters ghost-trap.

Evaluating any spirit, beer, or wine is similar in that proper glassware has a huge impact on the results. For any whiskey, we suggest a standard Glencairn glass, which can be found at The Mixing Glass, in Costa Mesa’s OC Mix, along with the book.
