Rum history, molasses tasting and a bar, even before getting into the main Drinks Fest area.

|Bulleit Rye Whiskey and Bourbon served with pickle juice|
We also scored a fabulous gherkin, and I'm told the combination really works well together. I imagine it's certainly a way to kill the after-taste of the alcohol.
