MGM Grand Hotel & Casino is the first Las Vegas resort to select a customized craft bourbon through the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Single Barrel-by-the-Barrel program. The property’s knowledgeable beverage team recently traveled to Kentucky and sipped samples from three of the distillery’s finest barrels before determining the perfect fit for MGM Grand’s portfolio. The chosen spirit features caramel and apple notes and can be enjoyed straight up, on the rocks or mixed in guests’ favorite cocktails. 
The MGM Grand bartending staff engaged in a property-wide mixology competition in which they were tasked with creating an original concoction using Woodford Reserve Double Oaked as the base spirit. The winning cocktail, Woodford Double Peach, created by John Clair, Gabriel Sumsion and Amy Meng of Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, combines MGM Grand’s personalized Woodford Reserve Double Oaked bourbon, peach syrup, peach bitters and fresh squeezed lemon juice, strained and served in a martini glass. The Woodford Double Peach will be available for purchase at Fiamma in late June and is priced at $15.
