SCOTCH FACTS

If you know me, then you know I enjoy the occasional cocktail after work. I’m specifically a fan of whisky, with a preference for Scotch whisky, and I consider myself our team’s whisky expert. Weekly I share what I call, “Scotch Facts: Your Weekly Dram of Whisky Wisdom” with my office friends and I thought you might like to see it too. Cheers! – Justin

Whisky Fact of the Week:

Ordering on weekends can be tough as the bar gets very, very packed, but throughout the week the well-decorated interior and charming outdoor patio area are great places to grab a dram or try one of their signature cocktails which include the appropriately named Standard Pour.

Lagniappe (a little something extra):
