Servers at the mini bar refreshed guest’s palettes with cocktails by Knob Creek. The genuine, rich flavor of Knob Creek dates back before the Prohibition period, in original Kentucky Straight, Single Barrel Reserve, Rye, and Smoked Maple.

Knob Creek is not just a bourbon whiskey it’s a lifestyle, with dozens of recipes, from cocktails to meats, sauces and seasonings.
