Once derided as somewhat out of fashion, whisk(e)y, whether it's bourbon, Scotch, rye, Japanese whisky, or more unusual global offerings, has come roaring back in popularity with the advent of the craft-cocktail movement. And as with all things cocktail-related, SF offers some of the best bars to indulge in a dram, whether they're out-of-the-way dives with massive (and comparatively inexpensive) selections, Japanese-style sushi dens with private lockers, or Embarcadero hideaways packed with rare allocations and bottles from extinct distilleries. For Cocktail Week, we offer a map of ten of SF's best bars to sip a rare whisk(e)y, with accompaniments ranging from sashimi to cigars to pub grub. (They're in no particular order.)
