Follow these simple steps to smoke Bourbon with the Gentlemen Made Cocktail Smoker:

  1. Remove the branded band holding the lid, smoker, and trivet together.
  2. Pour Bourbon into your cocktail glass, and then place the smoker on top of the glass.
  3. Insert one pinch of wood chips into the chimney chamber using the tongs provided for lighter smoke or two pinches for thicker smoke.
  4. After igniting the Gentlemen Made Torch, direct the flame towards the wood chips and wait until they begin to smoke, then proceed to fully light the chips for a duration of 3-5 seconds, depending on your desired level of smokiness.
  5. Place the lid on the smoker and wait for the smoke to infuse into the cocktail. Wait for 30-120 seconds. Adjust the wait time according to your desired level of smokiness. Keep in mind that the longer you wait, the more the aroma will infuse into the Bourbon.
  6. Remove the lid of the smoker and let the impressive presentation of the released smoke infuse the surrounding atmosphere, making heads turn and adding to the overall experience of enjoying a perfectly smoked Bourbon cocktail.
  7. Place the smoker back on the trivet to allow the smoker to cool down, and carefully put the lid back on to extinguish any remaining embers in the chimney chamber.
  8. Sip and enjoy your smoked Bourbon.
