If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen my post from this morning highlighting the new Brenne Whisky. What I love about this whiskey is that it combines the bite of the South’s favorite drink with the elegance of French distilling (this single malt scotch is made in Cognac, France). I was really excited to share this on my feed as someone with French heritage living in Tennessee (arguably, the whiskey capital of the world).
This whiskey is great to drink neat on its own but different enough to yield some cool twists on classic cocktail recipes. I would recommend using lavender bitters in an old-fashioned made with Brenne Whisky to compliment the fruit-forward notes and French origin. Or, for a simpler mixing option, try it with vanilla coke.
I often have a tough time deciding what to wear for product collaboration shots, but this whiskey-colored velvet slip dress from 7 for All Mankind was the perfect option (and it’s still available, on major sale). I’m wearing it this summer by itself with a pair of sneakers but want to layer it over a turtleneck and over-the-knee boots come fall. My new Hèrmes Twilly scarf which I bought on my recent trip to Atlanta also matched the bottle perfectly with varying hues of orange and blue.
