Ridgeline Vermont Whiskey

This past weekend my boyfriend and I made a trip up to Vermont for the day. It was an impromptu trip that reminded me of two things: One, I hadn’t written a blog post in a while and Two, recently Frank (from the Omni Parker Hotels Last Hurrah) had us try a whiskey from Vermont…

The Irishman Founders Reserve
