This year marks the 5th Annual Bank and Bourbon’s Bourbon Bash. Proceeds from Bourbon Bash benefit DonorsChoose.org, an organization that supports educational needs and programs in the Tri-State area. That’s right, guests of this fabulous event got to sample wonderful food and drink from Bank & Bourbon in addition to supporting a great cause. In the last three years, Bank & Bourbon has donated over $50,000 in supplies to our local school teachers and students to improve the quality of education and touched over 15,000 students!
This year’s event will showcasePastry Chef Amanda Kaewvichien and Executive Chef Thomas Harkins will be preparing some of his signature dishes including Beef Tartare, a Charcuterie and Cheese station, a Raw Crudo Station and multiple action stations of Salmon, Porchetta, Cowboy Steaks and Pork Chops.
Last year guests enjoyed exclusive Single Barrel tastings and specials from Flavor Philadelphia partner Saint Benjamin Brewery exclusively for Bank & Bourbon. We enjoyed freshly made Mint Juleps and Mahnattan cocktails in addition to sampling from Bourbon sponsors at the event, like Jim Beam, Knob Creek, and Basil Hayden.
