🥃 & Events! 

A Quick Note 🥃

Well it's been a turbulent few months to say the least. By March 15th (actually a bit before) we knew that we would not be having any in-person events for awhile.

We've been better about making announcements on social media as things happened than sending out email newsletters. But now it's time to send a quick catchup email out.

We'll cover each of these things below in more detail:
  • We've added Virtual Events such as Bourbon Tastings & Cocktail Classes to our services in partnership with
  • On March 15th we started a free online cocktail series called Crazy Cabin Fever Cocktails
  • Upcoming Events (Virtual & IRL ... In Real Life):
    • Virtual Bourbon tasting for Father's Day • June 21
    • Virtual Fundraiser bourbon tasting for Scott/Bourbon County Habitat for Humanity with Bluegrass Distillers • June 26
    • Spark Versailles • "Made in America" Bourbon Dinner • July 10
    • The Kentucky Castle • Crash Course to Bourbon Stewardship • July 12
      (All Kentucky Bourbon School events for the rest of 2020 at the Kentucky Castle are canceled / being reassessed.)

 Virtual Bourbon Tastings 
 now available! 🥃 💻  

Whether you have a company of 900 or a gathering of 8 friends, we can bring an entertaining or educational element to your online party or conference.

With small groups, we can keep everyone online and chatting. Over a certain size we’ll ask people to mute and use the chat to moderate incoming questions. 

We can do bourbon tastings OR follow-along cocktail classes for some favorites, classics or even our own recipes.
