Did you know Utica has its own local Bourbon? It's called Premium Hand-Crafted 601 Bourbon from Adirondack Distilling Company on Varick Street.

Whether it's Kentucky Derby or not, a mint julep is a great reason for you to have a party. Put on your fancy hats and make some homemade mint juleps.

I was at the Adirondack Distilling Company this morning with Nick Mahaney, and the cats Gin and Tonic. What fun! We made Mint Juleps with locally crafted 601 Bourbon. They taste really good. It's easy to do and a perfect way to impress your friends.

The 601 Bourbon is made with 100% corn sourced within 75 miles of Utica. Local people making local bourbon. Let's make local Mint Juleps. Make sure you watch the bloopers at the end of video.
