  4. Quote of the night

    How could two women be more different than the beautiful languid Carolina girl and this swift handsome girl from Utica, best Dutch stock? One thing was sure. Each was to be courted, loved, drunk with, with bourbon. I should have stuck with bourbon.

    — Walker Percy (from Bourbon, Neat)

  5. Writing on the coaster

    From “The Ballad of the Sad Cafe” :

    The whisky they drank that evening (two big bottles of it) is important. Otherwise, it would be hard to account for what followed. Perhaps without it there would never have been a café. For the liquor of Miss Amelia has a special quality of its own. It is clean and sharp on the tongue, but once down a man it glows inside him for a long time afterward. And that is not all. It is known that if a message is written with lemon juice on a clean sheet of paper there will be no sign of it. But if the paper is held for a moment to the fire then the letters turn brown and the meaning becomes clear. Imagine that the whisky is the fire and that the message is that which is known only in the soul of a man — then the worth of Miss Amelia’s liquor can be understood.

    -Carson McCullers, 1951

  9. Quote of the night

    I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun. I put them on and went out of the room.

  10. Quote of the night

    I really don’t think bourbon belongs on the table during a meal. It just destroys your tongue. So drink it on its own, as its own course. Maybe put some water in it. Let the proof change. Let the flavor change. Don’t rush things.
