An evening of friends, haircuts, style and award-winning bourbon

In partnership with Jim Beam Black.

Just over a week ago, we had the pleasure of welcoming 100 guests to Ludlow Blunt in Brooklyn to celebrate the award-winning Jim Beam Black Bourbon. Guests were treated to classic cocktails, fresh haircuts by the Ludlow Blunt staff and founder Russ Manley, tips on ways to elevate your style from yours truly and a range of premium offerings from the Jim Beam portfolio.

Style is so much more than the clothes you wear and it is always great bring people together around a shared experience that combines different elements of craft, expertise and passion. The fact that our crowd was filled with an eclectic mix of people only served to highlight that spirit of openness and acceptance that we like to preach.

On hand, was a Jim Beam expert who guided folks through four Jim Beam offerings – Jim Beam Bonded, Jim Beam Rye, Jim Beam Double Oak and, of course, the award-winning Jim Beam Black. Comparing and considering each spirit this way was enlightening and assuredly delicious.

Enjoy some photos from the evening in the slideshow above. We hope to see you at future events – the next of which is slated for December. Stay tuned for details!

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,

    Your jacket and tie combo perfect for your coloration and blends well with the Bourbon. Jim Beam may not be the best out there, but it certainly meets its Bourbon of proof.(Poor legal joke). Drink responsibly, which means, of course, be responsible for getting drunk. Sobriety is the vice of life! I, myself, was sober for eleven years, then I turned twelve.
