The story of the Bourbon Renewal

The Bourbon Renewal cocktail has a history that dates back to 2004. It was created by Jeffrey Morgenthaler at the Bel Ami Lounge in Oregon, USA. The name of the cocktail was inspired by a band that Morgenthaler’s business partner, Tony Figoli, was part of years earlier. 

Morgenthaler is known for his contributions to the modern cocktail revival, focusing on simplicity and putting his own spin on classics. The Bourbon Renewal is a testament to this approach, blending bourbon with crème de cassis, lemon juice, simple syrup, and bitters to create a straightforward drink.

This cocktail is a modern classic that showcases Morgenthaler’s innovative spirit and has become a beloved choice for many cocktail enthusiasts.
