Join Heaven Hill’s Ambassador of North American Whiskey; Bernie Lubbers a.k.a. The Whiskey Professor, for a tasting you won’t forget. “The Evolution of Bourbon” takes you through history and you’ll taste what folks in Kentucky were drinking back in the 1700’s when folks just called it “whiskey”. It it was clear, un-aged, and a little hot (Trybox — Series Corn New Make). Then it evolved taking that same corn whiskey and aging it in a used barrel in the early 1800’s (Mellow Corn). By 1836 Bourbon had a name and Kentucky had a reputation established and it was shipped and drank right from the barrel in the first Golden Age of bourbon (Fighting Cock bourbon). Then in the mid to late 1800’s they were making whiskey from the other grain that grows in Kentucky (Bernheim Wheat Whiskey). The Bottled In Bond Act of 1897 really set the bar and what has become referred to now as “prep-prohibition style whiskey” (JW Dant Bottled In Bond). In 1984 it was the Single Barrel and Small Batch Bourbon’s that revitalized the category and put is clearly in the 2nd Golden Age of Bourbon (Elijah Craig 12 year).
“The Evolution of Bourbon Flight” is an all sensory experience, so you will feel, smell, hear, see, and taste the history of bourbon as it evolved from the 1700’s to today. Sound cool? RSVP!
