The Bourbon Review recently compiled a list of its picks for America’s 80 Best Bourbon Bars as part of the magazine’s eighth anniversary issue — and only one D.C. bar made the list this year: Jack Rose.

“It’s great to see bourbon become a nationwide phenomenon and we owe a lot of the new interest to those bars that are proud to serve it or even build their entire theme around it,” said Justin Thompson of The Bourbon Review. “We’re very excited to expand our list to 80 deserving bars that take their selection, employee education and customer experience of tasting bourbon to the highest level.”

Jack Rose, located in D.C.’s Adams Morgan neighborhood, boast more than 2,300 different whiskey, including a large selection of bourbons.

Nationwide “Toast” Scheduled for September 30 to Recognize 80 Bars

As part of National Bourbon Heritage Month (September), The Bourbon Review is partnering with Four Roses Bourbon for a nationwide “toast” to each of the 80 establishments selected. The “toast” will take place on Friday, September 30, and bourbon fans are being asked to take part by tagging their favorite bourbon bar on the list using the hashtag #80Toast.

“We are proud to once again help The Bourbon Review celebrate their Best 80 list,” said Brent Elliott, Four Roses Master Distiller. “It’s an honor to recognize and toast these establishments who take their Bourbon as seriously as we do.”

In addition to the toast, on-site visits to select winning Bourbon bars across the country by Four Roses Bourbon and The Bourbon Review are planned in September and October. Look for updates on Four Roses Bourbon’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/fourrosesbourbon.
