Bourbon by Brands III: Non-Distiller Producers and Outside KY
To conclude our trilogy, we’re looking at sourced and contract Bourbons plus Bourbons from outside of Kentucky.
Sourcing has a bad rap as it’s often associated with fake histories and high prices, but is that always warranted? (Mark Gillespie once described it as ‘buying a pie, sprinkling some cinnamon on top and saying you made it.’)
Contract involves hiring another distillery to make your recipe, how is that different? (Answer: very)
And what does being outside of Bourbon’s home state do to the spirit?
Selection may include:
• Rabbit Hole Bourbon
• James E Pepper 1776 Bourbon
• Yellowstone Bourbon
• Jefferson’s Bourbon
• Whiskey Row Bourbon
• Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon
• Garrison Brothers Bourbon
* Selection very subject to change!
Tickets are available for:
Wednesday, Nov 13, 6:00-7:30pm
