Bourbon bars in the south are more likely than other regions to be attached to amazing restaurants. Celebrated chefs like Sean Brock at Husk know better than most that great food pairs with great whiskey – and their restaurants have the menus to prove it. At the 404 Kitchen, for example, Head Chef Matt Bolus and the team at Gertie’s Bar have amassed a whiskey list surpassing 600 bottles, complete with coveted barrel picks like Willet and Weller.
One of the most exciting newcomers to our list, The Whiskey Project in Atlanta, boasts a wall of over 1,000 whiskeys from around the world. They focus heavily on bourbons and ryes from North America, but lovers of Irish and Scotch whisky won’t be disappointed either.
