N.Kentucky-Cincy Branch

Hello Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati Bourbon Women!

It’s been just over a year since Kim and I, along with some members of our Branch Distilling Committee, first met with Bourbon Women about forming our branch. We never anticipated the success we would have – all because of our members and the Bourbon-loving women in the Northern Kentucky – Cincinnati metro region. Thank you!

Our new branch has been busy in its first year. We held our official launch event – A Spirited Night – in May, at New Riff Distilling, in Newport, Kentucky.  More than 120 “Bourbon Women” attended this sold-out event and enjoyed cocktails from some of the best Bourbon bars in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, along with a presentation by Marianne Barnes, the Master Distiller at Castle & Key. That was quickly followed up by a very limited, very exclusive, June members-only trip to Maker’s Mark. Those lucky enough to snag a seat enjoyed lunch on the way to Maker’s, a tour and tasting, a cocktail reception under the stunning Chihuly ceiling, and speakers from the “Bourbon Women” that makeup Maker’s Mark. We are currently busy planning our next Bourbon Bash and looking at options for another tour!

We held our first holiday “Sip & Shop” sponsored by Four Roses at Liquor City Uncorked in Covington, Kentucky. We are looking forward to our “second edition” in late November or early December 2017. We also recently wrapped up our “Give-a-Shift” fundraiser on February 13, sponsored by Old Forester, and which benefitted the Anchal Project – a non-profit social enterprise that addresses the exploitation of women around the world by using design thinking to create employment opportunities, services and products that support empowerment. We had a great turnout at the new Hotel Covington in Covington, Kentucky. Many thanks to Old Forester and Hotel Covington for their support of this worthy cause.

In addition, our Branch holds regular “Meet &Neats” at local bourbon enthusiast establishments. So far, we’ve visited Papa’s Bourbon & Beer House, Wiseguy Lounge, Myrtle’s Punch House, Meritage, The Prohibition Bourbon Bar at Newberry Bros., and The Globe.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details on these and other new events.
