It’s common sense that drinking and driving should never mix, and no one wants to risk a costly DWI, much less the possibility of injuring themselves and/or others by getting behind the wheel after consuming alcoholic beverage.
George Dickel, the smooth and mellow Tennessee whisky distillery has generously offered an Uber credit for Austin Food & Wine festival attendees, to help them journey to and from the festival safely. The voucher is good for up to $25 off one trip, and is available to the first 400 to claim it. Use this link for the voucher code to be applied to your Uber app: https://r.uber.com/r3K5PU5hOh7.
While at the festival, look for the George Dickel pouring their bourbon in the Grand Taste tents. When you have your taste poured for you, try the “Kentucky Chew” method of bourbon tasting: first, appreciate the color. It’s a warm, rich color that makes you want to pull up an easy chair, relax and sip the evening away. Next, sniff deeply, really put your nose into your glass and keep your mouth slightly open while you inhale the aroma. It’s okay. No one is watching, or if they are, it’s to learn how to properly sample this small-batch bourbon. You’ll notice the light smell of vanilla, clean and sugary, followed by a bit of cherry and citrus and ending with a bit of toffee and oak. Take a sip and roll the bourbon around in your mouth (the “chew”) to hit all areas of taste buds for maximum flavor. Then smile, and make a mental note to add a bottle to your bar collection.
Enjoy the fest, and remember Dickel is “Mellow as Moonlight” and you should be as well, using a rideshare or other means of transportation to find you safely home afterward.
