Love bourbon? Travel? Here’s a shameless plug for a unique way to combine both passions:
Join us for our "Ultimate Bourbon Experience," April 26-29, 2012
, in Kentucky, the bourbon capital of the world, on an exclusive trip that includes private opportunities to sample, create, and buy rare spirits; learn from small craft distillers and industry icons; and generally indulge in a favorite hobby in a relaxing and truly memorable way.
• Private Distillery Access
: We'll enjoy the rare opportunity to privately tour the Willett
distillery, which is not open to the public, but is renowned for its small batch bourbons like its Pot Still Reserve and Old Bardstown Collection. We'll sample and can purchase bourbons not available anywhere else in the world. We’ll also enjoy an extended, behind-the scenes tour of the Buffalo Trace
distillery, home of Pappy Van Winkle, among other legendary and new experimental bourbons. Both tours will be private and led by expert distillers and owners; at Buffalo Trace, we’ll be instructed as we share in the rare opportunity to sample and then select a barrel to be bottled exclusively for our group
• In-Depth Interaction with Industry Insiders and Icons
: We'll spend one evening pairing fine bourbons and a special dinner with Mike Veach
of the Filson Historical Society in Louisville. Mike has been inducted to the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame, and is known as “the only professional bourbon historian in the country.” Another night, we’ll discuss all things bourbon with Lincoln and Wes Henderson
, who many bourbon aficionados know from Woodford Reserve and Old Forester, and recently for their Angel's Envy brand, a unique bourbon aged in port wine casks that Bourbon Buzz called "a Spiritual Awakening.”
• BourbonFest Sampler in Bardstown
: We'll attend this more intimate version of the iconic Kentucky Bourbon Festival. We'll meet Master Distillers, brand ambassadors, and industry experts, tasting many offerings, and as desired bid in a silent auction of unique bourbon items.
• Relaxed VIP Treatment, Small Group
: This will be an indulgent trip in terms of accommodations, transportation, cuisine and bourbon, but will be enjoyed in the company of a small, relaxed group. A quick getaway to Louisville, but years of memories: truly a Trip for the Bucket (Barrel) List!
