The Henry stormed the Dallas food scene along with other concepts from Phoenix-based Fox Restaurant Group, but while we love a hearty grain bowl from Flower Child, we like our booze, too.

Enter The Henry's gorgeous two-story food and booze haven.

We recently caught wind that they had just launched a new whiskey that beverage director Mat Snapp cooked up with Savage & Cooke distillery, and we had to get in on it.

Savage & Cooke distills juice from heirloom corn and grains, then cuts spirits with water from a historic spring. We got our nose (and mouths, TBH) on it, and the butterscotch and baking spice notes kind of took our hearts.

This month they'll focus on the spirit in their classic Old-Fashioned. They keep it simple with just a touch of Ango and a cherry garnish so they can let the spirit shine. (And luckily, it tastes nothing like MOONshine.)

Classic Old-Fashioned ($14): Savage & Cooke whiskey, angostura bitters, Luxardo cherry

The Henry, 2301 N. Akard St., Suite 250 (Harwood District)

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
