Reserve 101 Whiskey Bar & Signature Cocktail Lounge, Houston’s premier location for whiskey and spirits of all kinds, announces its summer tasting schedule, featuring events with top-of-the-line brands and experts. The $20 tasting fee from each event during the summer series will benefit local charity, Lucky Dog Rescue.

Lucky Dog Rescue is a local non-profit organization that strives to find permanent, loving homes for abandoned pets. Lucky Dog has given over 566 pets homes since February 2008 and works hard to find the right home for each and every dog in its program. “We are thrilled to partner with Reserve 101 for the summer whiskey tastings. There are so many dogs in need and every little bit helps,” said Jodie Eisenhardt, volunteer and Board Member at Lucky Dog Rescue. 

Reserve 101 co-owner Mike Raymond stated that Lucky Dog was a natural fit when looking for a charity partner this summer. “We’ve done events with the organization in the past and want to help out in any way we can. We rarely charged for tastings in the
past, but with such an outstanding line-up this summer, we decided to donate 100% of the proceeds to Lucky Dog.”

Upcoming tastings and appearances with various brand ambassadors and master distillers at Reserve 101 include the following:

Thursday, May 30, 8:30 p.m. – Reserve 101 will host a release event for Ardbeg Distillery’s latest whiskey, “Ardbog.” Also on hand will be Ardbeg Distillery’s Rocket, exclusively featured at Reserve 101 for the launch event. (Complimentary event. Donations may be made to Lucky Dog Rescue at the event.)

Tuesday, June 25, time TBA – High West Distillery tasting with the brand’s ambassador in Reserve 101’s cozy back room. Named “2011 Whiskey Pioneer of the Yea” by Malt Advocate Magazine, High West has a strong relationship with Reserve 101 after the bar
hosted the official release of the entire portfolio of whiskey and spirits from High West Distillery in 2012.

Wednesday, August 14, time TBA – Garrison Brothers Bourbon proprietor Dan Garrison will be at Reserve 101 for an exclusive tasting on August 14. Award winning Garrison Brothers Bourbon is the only Straight Bourbon made in Texas and is the first and oldest legal whiskey distillery in Texas.

Tickets to participate in the various summer tastings can be purchased online at under the “Tastings” tab or at the bar for $20.
