Hudson Whiskey comes to Louisiana

Hudson Whiskey is the featured spirit in the Louisiana Restaurant Association's A La Carte Magazine Spring issue in the Beverage Beat.
The Louisiana Restaurant Association had the pleasure of attending the Hudson Whiskey Dinner at Bourbon House, April 4, 2012 as part of the New Orleans Bourbon Society (NOBS) at the Bourbon House in the French Quarter.
Hudson Whiskeys were introduced in Louisiana at the
April 4 New Orleans Bourbon Society dinner at the
Bourbon House.
During the five-course dinner, Freddy May, brand ambassador for Hudson Whiskey, presented each of the five Hudson products—Baby, Manhattan Rye, NY Corn Whiskey, Single Malt and Four Grain—paired with courses of savory crawfish brioche with macque choux and a Hudson corn sauce and pepper duck breast with a parsnip pear puree and bacon Brussels sprouts, among others.

Hudson Whiskeys are produced in Tuthilltown, New York and is the first legal pot-distilled whiskey made in New York since prohibition. Made from 100 percent New York corn and aged in special small American Oak barrels, Hudson Baby Bourbon has been recognized in Forbes magazine and in 2011 won a double gold medal at the San Francisco Wine and Spirits Competition. Whiskeymagazine named Hudson the Best New American Whiskey in 2010.
Bourbon House Hudson Whiskey dinner
featured five courses of delicious cuisine.
The first course was savory crawfish
brioche served with macque choux and
a bourbon corn sauce and was accompanied
with Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey.
"It’s the dream of every micro craft distiller out there to produce a product that gets this kind of recognition within a few years,” said May. “The work of the Hudson owners has paved the way for micro distilleries in New York and now there are hundreds of them in the state.”

Hudson was bought by William Grant & Sons who have taken this line of whiskeys to national distribution status and was introduced in Louisiana at the Bourbon House dinner. Hudson is a product of Republic National Distributing Company.

NOBS offers complimentary membership and is a spirited society dedicated to the appreciation of fine bourbons. Events are hosted by Bourbon House, home to over 50 small batch and single barrel Bourbons.
Member benefits include invitations to Bourbon Events, including seminars with master distillers from the top Bourbon and American Whiskey producers, Bourbon dinners and cocktail parties, a Bourbon "passport" for members to record their tastes, complimentary pour of the featured Bourbon of the Month, the opportunity to meet and sip with other Bourbon enthusiasts and a Master Taster Recognition with a plaque at Bourbon House engraved with the names of members who have tasted the entire Bourbon list. 

Just think, your name could be immortalized!
