In the past two months I have taken up a couple new things in life that I want to learn, playing the guitar and the enjoyment of tasting whiskey. To learn more about whiskey I purchased Tasting Whiskey by Lew Bryson. I’m still in the process of reading it but I have to share with you one thing I took away and it became a project perfect for the holiday season.
Lew points out that to enjoy the taste of whiskey one has to pass through The Wall. The Wall is a task of drinking whiskey every day for a month. When I read this it was early November and my crafty mind came into play. How can I make this more enjoyable than just drinking whiskey every day for 30 days, I mean if I look at my collection of bottles I have 9 different bottles I can count for but I wanted more than 9 varieties. So with the help of the loc
al liquor store and my favorite distillery I purchased 25 shooters. I’m aware 25 is less than 30 but now my Advent Calendar for Christmas can roll on.
With this idea I am hoping to expand my knowledge of whiskey with the help of Jack, Jim, Motor City Gas, Knob Creek, and Bulleit to name a few. Also a stop at the local Micheals helped with some craftiness. The photo to the left was the layout idea.
With my love of the pattern plaid I had to find a sweet way to cover each bottle mix them up so that I wouldn’t just pick what I think I like more. I wrapped them all up and mixed them up and over the countdown to Christmas I’ll be sipping a bottle taking notes and sharing them with you. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing. It’s a great time for celebration best to you and yours.
