Come Help Us Celebrate the Release of Our Private Selection Bourbon from the Maker’s Mark Exclusive Oak Stave Barrel Program.
September 27, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT$30
While we have been very fortunate to make many private bourbon picks over the past year – we were very honored to be included in the exclusive Private Select program at Makers’ Mark.
The beautiful day in Loretto, KY started with a complete distillery tour. Later, we were “sealed” in the bourbon cellar tasting lab where we learned about the various types of wood used – and how toasting at different temperatures releases different flavors in the bourbon. We set about to craft our own bourbon flavor profile by selecting a combination of 10 wood staves – each with it’s own unique characteristics.
After many . . (many . . MANY) combinations – we chose our final product – and then inserted those particular staves into the barrel. We pumped the bourbon back into the barrel – where it then spent another 9 weeks maturing in the limestone cave at Maker’s Mark.
This Wednesday (September 27th) we’ll be joined by Jacklyn Evans from Maker’s Mark for a special release event of our Private Selection bourbon. Jacklyn will be leading you through a guided tasting of the same bourbon expressions that we used to create our barrel. This is a one-of-a-kind experience where you will taste bourbons that will never be released for sale. You’ll also learn about the history of Maker’s Mark and we’ll end with the first tasting from our new Private Selection barrel!
Seating is limited and tickets are $30 / person which includes a plated appetizer. The event will begin at 6:30 pm. For tickets, please call the store at 859-278-9463. If you get the answering machine – please leave your name and phone number as we’ll fill the seats on a first-come basis.
