Swagger Food Pairing Dinner - This Time, with Whiskey

I know I typically talk about beer (and mead and cider) on here, but I also enjoy distilled malt beverages (especially rye) and have been keeping tabs on Swagger’s upcoming whiskey dinner. They’re partnering with Heaven Hill distilleries, which produce familiar brands like Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and Rittenhouse Rye (mmm, manhattans...). And, which provides some of the barrels for Boulevard's barrel-aged beers.

You can read about the details on their website, but here’s a quick rundown of the dinner. It’s $50 per person, and you get:

Mid West Triple Cooked Beef Rib + Evan Williams – Single Barrel

Smoked Trout Hash + Bernheim Wheat Whiskey.

Hand Crafted Hickory Smoked Boudin Sausage + Rittenhouse Rye Bottled in Bond

Smoked Duck Breast in a Pancetta Taco Shell + Elijah Craig – 12yr.

Pecan Pie +  Cherry Manhattan (Evan Williams, Evan Williams Cherry Reserve, sweet vermouth)

The dinner will be held at Swagger (unlike their previous pairing dinner, which was held off site), and you can call them at 816-361-4388 to reserve your spot. 


  1. Smoked Duck Breast in a Pancetta Taco Shell plus a bottle of Elijah Craig whiskey is a very good combination. I don't know why this happened and doesn't taste good with other whiskey drink.

  2. The combination of Smoked Duck Breast in a Pancetta Taco Shell and Elijah Craig whiskey is perfect and extraordinary. I wonder if any of the foods will be a good partner for a bottle of Chardonnay.
