7.

8. & 9. Venus Spirit Wayword Whiskey, $?? but worth every penny... The recipe in our Jamhattan calls for their Rye Whiskey, but this sweetie just won a Good Food Award this year and is a great substitute.  What to drink your whiskey or bourbon on you ask?!? Well, these lovely rocks glasses would suit any lover of this spirit. Whether your sweetie is a wrangler, the bullet rocks glass is as wrangler as you can get..., or more of the San Franciscan, the etched San Francisco glass is perfect, you can bet you will get a twinkle in someones eye with either of these...

BOURBON...In 1789 bourbon whiskey was born on the western edge of the United States. Today Wayward Whiskey takes a bit of that tradition farther west to the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean. This unruly spirit has forged its own path to become a truly bold American whiskey.
