Pot Liquor CAS has a new name and serves Pappy!


In Las Vegas, Nevada and wanting to taste some Pappy Van Winkle? Pot Liquor CAS, now known as Pot Liquor Smokehouse Barbecue has recently revamped not only its name but its menu as well. "Using the word smokehouse in restaurant branding has become more common because people are more knowledgeable about what makes barbecue great," chef Bell says in a press statement. "If we add barbecue to our name, it ties it all together and reinforces what’s on the menu."

Make sure to hide some money away from the slot machines because the The Pappy Van Winkle 15 year old starts at $150 for a 1.5oz glass and the older PVW 20 year old is also available for $200 at a 1.5oz glass.

Pot Liquor Smokehouse BBQ is located at 6587 Las Vegas Blvd S. B-196, Las Vegas NV 89119 and the phone number is 702-816-4600.

Chicago whiskey fans, this is a must visit!

Are you wanting some Pappy Van Winkle in Chicago? Steadfast is coming to The Loop by the end of June with master chefs Chris Davies & Chris Texeira operating. Davies currently runs the kitchen at Homestead on The Roof which is anotehr Fifty/50 property.

Whiskey fans will be treated with Manhattans made with either Jim Beam from 1977 or Pappy Van Winkle 10-year bourbon. One of the highlights of Steadfast is its extensive spirits program focused on brown spirits, particularly antique and hard-to-find whiskeys. Among the twenty bottles on hand, all bottled between the 1930s and the 1970s, is an offering from Stitzel-Weller, known by bourbon connoisseurs as the first distillery owned and operated by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle himself. “We’re looking not just for different distillers, but different time periods,” says Schiller, who has been hitting up auctions with Sas to find interesting bottles. The prices are not set in stone at the moment and instead will be determined by demand.

Steadfast will be located in the new Kimpton Gray hotel located at 39 S. LaSalle St. Chicago, IL 60603
