Chances are when you have a drink after a long day at work, or an evening out with friends, you don’t take the time to read the label of the bottle as the bartender pours your drink.

But if you are a bibliophile, you probably noticed two different spellings of the word, “Whisky.” One with an “E” and one without. And, no, it’s not due to a spelling error or a typo.

In today’s Across the Table, we’re sitting down with local liquor distributor, Brad Plamer, who schools us in the differences between the two and what they mean.

At JJ’s they like to say they provide “an enhanced adult beverage experience” and we think that’s just perfect to sum up the great food and drink and the great people you’ll run into at JJ’s Wine, Spirits and Cigars. They’re located at 3000 west 57th Street in Sioux Falls. You can find out more about their specials and events, by checking out their website at JJ’s Wine dot com.

This is your opportunity to sample French wines and taste the Reidel difference using different style glasses. And you get to keep the glasses!
