The Scoop: Sanctuaria named among best bourbon bars in the U.S.

August 14th 11:08am, 2013



Congratulations to Sanctuaria, which was named among the top bourbon bars in the country by The Bourbon Review. The bourbon industry publication released a list of America’s 55 best bourbon bars as part of its fifth anniversary issue, and Sanctuaria was the only bar in St. Louis to make the cut.

According to a press release, criteria to earn a spot on the list included that the bar “showcase bourbon in a very proud manner, by educating their patrons about bourbon and either providing them with a superior selection or a combination of a great selection along with having a reputation for showcasing bourbon in their cocktails.”

In The Bourbon Review article, Sanctuaria is commended for hand-selecting barrels from Kentucky distilleries and for being one of the first in the country to offer cocktails on tap and barrel-aged cocktails. Sanctuaria’s former bar manager Matt Seiter was given a nod for his contribution to the spirits program at the establishment in The Grove.

The only other Missouri bar to receive accolades was J.O.B. Public House in Springfield. The 55 bars on the list were categorized by region, with seven establishments from the Midwest getting a nod. A complete list with information about each bar is available here.

Sanctuaria is one of multiple bars and restaurants owned by Dr. Gurpreet Padda and Ami Grimes. The business partners continue to add concepts to the local dining scene. Padda and Grimes plan to expand into Edwardsville, Ill. with Hendricks Smokehouse, located at 1201 N. Main St., targeted to open in mid-2014, as reported by George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine.
