With so many types of whiskey available, we believe it is important to support local whiskey distilleries and spirit makers if the opportunity arises, and that is why we chose to add six new whiskeys from the Illinois region to the already solid selection at Howells & Hood.
Welcome to our introduction to whiskey. If you want to impress friends and strangers with some liquor-related knowledge and musings at your next cocktail party or networking event, then welcome to our whiskey class. These simple guidelines can help you figure out what kind of whiskey to order at a bar, and why you may like a certain type of whiskey more than another.
