Monthly Bourbon Tasting, Boot Shines Available at Luxury Hotel's Whiskey & Rye Bar

FORT WORTH, Texas (March 1, 2012) - The Omni Fort Worth Hotel invites guests to kick up their feet and throw one back as it launches its new “Boots & Bourbon” program. Beginning March 6, the hotel’s acclaimed Whiskey & Rye  bar will host the monthly event, which includes a featured bourbon tasting and a complimentary expert shine by M.L. Leddy's resident boot shiner. 

Omni's Whiskey & Rye bar, voted “Best Sports Bar” and “Top Five Places for a Drink in Fort Worth,” will partner with M.L. Leddy's for this Texas-inspired event. Whisky & Rye is home to more than 100 in-house whiskies and a featured Whiskey of the Week as well as the infamous Hell's Half Acre Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich. Since its opening 85 years ago, M.L. Leddy’s has been Fort Worth’s source for high quality western wear, is family owned and prides itself on making trusted products with unparalleled customer service.

“Teaming up with M.L. Leddy’s gives guests and locals another way to sample the authentic flavor of Fort Worth,” said Larry Auth, director of sales & marketing for the Omni Fort Worth Hotel. “Our longstanding partnership with M.L. Leddy’s enables us to create some unique and memorable experiences.” 

Commonly known as the “City of Cowboys & Culture,” Fort Worth’s upscale western culture served as inspiration for Omni’s pairing of fine bourbons and boot shines. Guests and local residents can take advantage of the Boots & Bourbon offer on the first Tuesday of every month from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Services are available on a first-come first-served basis.
