Welcome from the President

Dear Bourbon Women:

While we all know that bourbon is delicious any time of year, I think autumn is really bourbon’s best season. All those dark fruit, wood and spicy flavors pair so beautifully with the cooler air, warm fireplaces and cozy clothes.

This season also means we are nearing one of our favorite events – our annual Sip and Shop days in our partner liquor stores near our branches. This year, we’re planning six different Sip and Shops, and it’s likely you’ll find one close to you beginning Nov. 29th through Dec. 12.

Sip and Shops are a chance for us to mingle, try a few new snacks and bourbon samples, and stock up on great bourbon gifts at some of our best retail partner outlets. Perhaps most important is the chance to pick up a Bourbon Women-selected single barrel bourbon! Once again, our Board members teamed up to choose a special barrel of Four Roses Bourbon, which will be designed with a special sticker bearing our logo. It’s no secret that the barrel we selected two years ago is one of my favorite bourbons of all time. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t buy more!

The Bourbon Women Four Roses barrel selection will be available at the Louisville Sip and Shop event at the Springhurst Liquor Barn on December 6. For those of you outside Louisville, check our website for the event closest to you and register – it’s free!

Meanwhile, we are gearing up for a fantastic 2019, full of new events and experiences for our growing Bourbon Women association. Thanks for making 2018 a banner year! Looking forward to sharing a cocktail with you soon (once our daughter is born in February)!

Kerri Richardson
