Interview with Chris Evans of Bluegrass Tavern

Boy did we have a great time sitting down with one of the legends of Lexington bartending and bourbon curating, Chris Evans of Bluegrass Tavern. We highly recommend checking them out if you are from Lexington of just passing through. Their bourbon collection is nearly impossible to beat and the drinks are strong and well made. Hope you have as much fun listening as we did interviewing, cheers!

  1. In case anyone is wondering about the frozen blackberry icecubes (the things in his glass that look like eyeballs), we just filled up an icecube tray and put a blackberry in each cube. We happen to have an ice tray that makes ice-spheres instead of cubes.
