In a recent post for Departures.com, I wrote about where to drink in a few US airports now, and a few announced plans for where you'll find better drinks in the future.
For my latest post on Departures.com, I wrote up some bar visits to Atlanta. Bars included in this story are: Holeman & Finch, Proof and Provision, The Lawrence, Kimball House, and Leon's Full Service.
I'll be a panelist at an event at the National Archives in Washington, DC. You know, the place where they keep the Declaration of Independence? That place. No big deal.
We walked all around this property, up on top of huge wine tanks (I'm scared of heights but I do it for you, dear reader), to a super modern bottling line, and then to the completely incongruously ridiculously small room in the middle of it all, where the single wood-fired armagnac still is slowly churning out eau de vie.
A visit to the stylish armagnac house of Gelas, where they're making single-varietal bottlings and even barrel-finished armagnac.
