American spirits take center stage in the “Thanksgiving Hour”

‘Happy Hour’ will turn into ‘Thanksgiving Hour’ as The Gresham joins some of Australia’s leading bars to celebrate the end of lockdown with “Cheers! Spirits from the USA.”

As people go out to celebrate the easing of lockdown and restrictions in the final weeks of 2021, bars and restaurants are making the most of the influx of customers eager to celebrate their newfound freedom.

From November 22 to 28, Australians will be treated to a week-long ‘Thanksgiving Hour’ promotion. Sponsoring the “‘Cheers! Spirits from the USA” campaign in Australia is the Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S (DISCUS). 

Spirits enthusiasts will get to enjoy a range of American spirits in Thanksgiving-themed cocktails at special prices.

Some of Australia’s iconic venues participating in the event include The Gresham in Brisbane; Maybe Sammy, Kittyhawk, Burdekin Hotel, Grain Bar, Nola Smokehouse and Bar, The Swinging Car and Burrow Bar in Sydney; The Everleigh, The Elysian Whisky Bar, The Catfish and Que Club in Melbourne; and Maybe Mae in Adelaide.

During ‘Thanksgiving Hour,’ expect a slew of cocktail offerings that will showcase American spirits, such as Angel’s Envy Bourbon, Bulleit Bourbon, KOVAL, Old Forester, St George Gin, Wild Turkey, Westland, and Westward American Single Malt Whiskey.

“After a difficult year, we’re looking forward to partnering with some of the nation’s leading venues to celebrate Thanksgiving. The country is known for having some of the most knowledgeable and innovative bartenders, so we’re looking forward to Australians being able to experience new and delicious cocktails using some of America’s finest spirits, whilst supporting much loved bars and giving thanks,” Charles McEntee of DISCUS said.
