Riverside Cigar Shop to Host Derby Events4-21-14
Whether you have been handicapping all year, or are betting the 50-1 long shot will cross the finish first, anything can happen at Derby. That’s why it’s vital to have your victory cigar in hand as the greatest two minutes in sports flash before your eyes. To help, Riverside Cigar Shop and Lounge has called in some Cigar and Bourbon experts to make sure you have everything you need to celebrate sweet victory.
Riverside Cigar Shop and Lounge Owner’s Jeff Mouttet and Kim Singleton will kick off the Derby weekend with a celebration of their own- Riverside Cigars is turning 3. On Thursday, May 1st at 4 p.m. The night will feature a special appearance by Mike Saurbaugh from Altadis Cigars and a real treat from Clint Aaron from 262 Cigars. Aaron is bringing along a very limited quantity of Allegiance blend cigars for release. This mid-medium cigar is enjoyable for folks of every palate with an effortless flavor.
“While all of our previous brands have been named in support of their overall cigar revolution theme, Allegiance is meant to take on a stronger tone. State by state, town by town, and at the Federal level too, we are seeing a growing opposition to our cigar culture,” said Aaron of the naming of the latest cigar.
Riverside Cigars is cranking it up a notch for Derby Eve with an extra special event with Nat Sherman Cigars. Vice President of the prestigious cigar company Michael Herklots will be in the house to give guests a one of a kind component tasting seminar. Guests will then get to pair the cigars with three bourbons. This isn’t your typical bourbon tasting, one of the bourbons guests will be swishing is Barterhouse Bourbon. Barterhouse Bourbon is part of The Orphan Barrel Project – limited quantities of rare barrels that have been sitting in the Stitzel-Weller warehouse for more than 20 years. This bourbon comes from one of a few “lost barrels” and won’t be found on any ole’ store shelf.
“We are offering Kentucky and Southern Indiana something special this year,” said Riverside Cigars Owner Jeff Mouttet. “Barterhouse Bourbon paired with a Nat Sherman Cigar is the perfect combination to start your path to a victorious weekend.”
Friday’s event kicks off at 7 p.m. and is a ticketed event. Tickets are priced at $29.95 and will go fast. To grab yours, visit Riverside Cigars at 201 Spring Street, Jeffersonville, Indiana or call (812) 284-6198.
