Whisky Dispensary System. ‘Nough Said. Grane in Midtown crossing Omaha. Mixologist and general manager Phil Cacciatore and owner Dan Matuszek offer premier and small batch whiskies, and handmade whiskey-based craft cocktails. Prohibition-style house Old Fashioned on tap.
Any self respecting single malt scotch would want its final resting place to be Grane in Midtown Crossing, Omaha — home to a dispensary system by the ounce that allows customers to sample a variety of whisky from classics like Highland Park and Ardberg to rare whiskies like Japanese Nikka Taketsuru 17 year old and French Bastille 1789. Owner Dan Matuszek talks to me about everything from the old fashioned cocktail on tap, to décor. “The brick on that wall is from an 1870s brewery in Cleveland— we really wanted to create a brand around the repeal of prohibition,” he reveals.
Sitting at the glistening bar, with more than 400 bottles of whisky, I mull over the menu until I finally settle for Auchentoshan‘s Three Wood, the dark amber liquid reveals citrus and butterscotch characteristics and I ponder my next choice.
