The Good Life: ‘Fools Gold’ bourbon and Porsche
‘Fools Gold’ Bourbon
St. Petersburg’s food and beverage culture gained a new bourbon courtesy of Buffalo Trace Distillery. Buffalo Trace Bourbon is aged and made with the finest corn, rye and barley malt. Buffalo Trace was also named Whisky Magazine’s 2020 Distiller Of The Year. The bourbon was chosen by St. Petersburg locals, Greg Haddad and Tony Mangiafico of St. Pete’s Flute & Dram. The bourbon’s name, “Fool’s Gold” was coined by Greg, Tony, and their group of friends dubbed “The Fools.” After sampling multiple barrels, they selected only the best as their ‘gold’ standard. Availability is limited.
Patrons can experience the taste of this whiskey for themselves at Flute & Dram, Ruby’s Elixir, Central Cigars, and Gratzzi, anytime while supplies last for $12 a pour. buffalotracedistillery.com.
