Puckett’s Franklin Hosting Whiskey and Bourbon Tasting March 6

Between Jack and George, there’s a rich whiskey legacy in our state. And Puckett’s is takin’ full advantage of that next week!

We’re holding our first-ever bourbon tasting Wednesday, March 6 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at our downtown Franklin location.

Here’s how it’ll go: we’ll guide our tasting participants through a sampling of six regional bourbon whiskeys, and a thorough explanation of each label’s origin, distilling method and taste. Each round will include a paired appetizer, especially created for the event by our kitchen!

“We’re going to dive into the roots of each whiskey bourbon, and really educate the guests on what they’re tasting,” said Ryan Dillon, one of our Franklin managers. “Bourbon is for slow sipping, and we’ll be doing a lot of that on Wednesday.”

In addition to Ryan’s instruction, we’re hosting special guest Mike Williams, proprietor of Collier and McKeel—the small-batch whiskey distilled in downtown Nashville. Mike will speak of his experiences creating the Tennessee whiskey, and what distinguishes Collier and McKeel from other brands and bourbons. Today, the company creates the only handcrafted, charcoal-mellowed whiskey made in Middle Tennessee.

The event cost is $30 per person. To reserve a spot, call 615-794-5527.

More about Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant
The restaurant’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Every since then, Puckett’s has been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality.

When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember.
