In true Southern style, whiskey is a popular choice at The Ford — and with it, comes an intriguing history. Nearly a decade ago, David Steven Pickerell, known as the “Johnny Appleseed” or “founding father” of craft distilling, brought his world-renowned whiskey, WhistlePig, to our private Lowcountry community. Our food and beverage specialists selected a barrel that stood out among an already incredible selection of spirits.
Ever since then, our members have enjoyed the distinctive, smooth taste of Pickerell’s five-star whiskey. Needless to say, this well-aged, farm-to-glass amber liquor has become a staple of our community, bringing together friends and family after days spent fishing right off the dock, golfing on our award-winning course or exploring more outdoor pursuits in the Lowcountry.
Raise a glass and toast to these three popular drinks at The Ford, featuring WhistlePig Whiskey and more:
You can’t go wrong with a classic Manhattan, a cocktail that dates back to the 1870s. This satisfying drink will warm your soul with whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters. Our members enjoy this beverage made with WhistlePig Rye Whiskey — the favorite whiskey used at The Ford — because it’s simply the best.
There are few things better than sipping down an old fashioned while sitting beside the fire at The Ford’s Main House. The most popular drink among our members at The Ford, it’s crafted with two dashes of bitters, sugar, cherries, orange, a splash of club soda and WhistlePig Whiskey. Cheers to that!
For those who love coffee mixed with liqueur, head to The Dining Room at The Ford’s Clubhouse and order Clara’s Coffee, a delicious after-dinner drink. Made with Bailey’s, Kahlua and white chocolate liqueur, this sweet, creamy coffee libation pays tribute to Mrs. Ford herself.
