Bourbon Women "royalty" featured in LEO Weekly article

Peggy Noe Stevens and Susan Reigler of Bourbon Women exude class and confidence. It’s hard not to feel like you’re amongst royalty whilst sipping bourbon with such influential women in the realm of our state’s great potion. Noe Stevens, akin to Booker Noe himself, “grew up with bourbon,” yet, in true queen fashion, felt the need to establish herself, on her own, in the world of bourbon. That she did, as she worked in the industry for Brown-Forman for 17 years, became a competitive taster and then became the first-ever female Master Bourbon Taster in the world. In 2010, she co-founded the group Bourbon Women, of which Reigler is the current president. Reigler, co-author of “The Kentucky Bourbon Cocktail Book” (volumes 1 & 2) and “The Bourbon Tasting Notebook,” a former food critic for the Courier-Journal and leader of bourbon tastings from “Seattle to Savannah.” The ladies and I bellied up to Bourbon’s Bistro to enjoy an Elijah Craig 21 Year for Susan, and an Elijah Craig Old Fashioned for Peggy and myself.
