Drink For a Cause: Woodford Reserve Pair + Share Gives Back with Food Pairing Program

Drink well, do good. For the 2019 Pair + Share Program, order a featured Woodford Reserve cocktail and perfectly paired dish and  Woodford Reserve will share a portion of the proceeds for every cocktail sold at participating restaurants (in metro NYC and Richmond, VA during September and in Boston in October) to benefit local causes.

Visit one of the Pair and Share participating restaurants in New York City and Richmond metro from September 1-30, 2019 to experience unique dishes paired with signature Woodford Reserve cocktails.

For every Woodford Reserve cocktail sold at participating restaurants, the brand will donate to a local cause: in NYC in September to benefit Rethink Food, a non-profit organization working to recover nutritious excess food to provide low or no-cost meals to New York City families in need.

“Our Pair and Share provides a platform to showcase the amazing things our local bars and restaurants in NYC are doing while promoting an amazing non-profit, ReThink NYC,” Michael Toscanini tells thirsty. “Guests get to come together and enjoy amazing food and drinks, while helping fund ReThink NYC to ensure they are able to continue recovering excess food from restaurants, farms, and other food purveyors, and then repurposing and distributing the meals throughout the boroughs to underserved New Yorkers.”

In Richmond, the donation from the Woodford Reserve Pair + Share program will go to COREgives.org, a 501(c)(3) regional organization whose mission is to support children of food and beverage service employees navigating life-altering circumstances.

“COREgives.org provides aid to hospitality industry families when they need it most,” Mimi Bishop, Brown-Forman Brands Trade Ambassador, tells thirsty. “We are excited that Richmond’s Pair & Share program supports a nonprofit that directly benefits restaurant employees and highlights the talented professionals in our local dining scene. This is a terrific opportunity for the community to give back while they enjoy unique culinary pairings at some of the best restaurants in our area.”

“The featured bartenders crafted original cocktails to honor their chef’s signature style and pair with specific dishes,” Bishop continues. “With over 200 detectable flavor notes from bold grain and wood to sweet aromatics, spice, and fruit & floral notes, Woodford Reserve Bourbon offers the perfect base to create delicious culinary-inspired beverages.”
