Those who have been following Vine & Table’s barrel program over the last several years know that we always seem to return to Charles Medley and Wathen’s Bourbon.

Amor d’ Amaro

I love Italian amari. These regional bitters offer a style and flavor for every palate – for example, Aperol and Fernet are considerably different.

Wathen’s “Barrel Proof” V&T Bourbon has arrived

I have always said that relationships matter in this business and when it comes to getting our hands on good casks, good relationships are crucial. We have had a long relationship with Charles and Sam Medley, owners of Wathen’s Bourbon, over the years, which proved exceedingly fruitful this year as Vine & Table was chosen […]
