Woodford Reserve Bourbon tells BourbonBlog.com that they will soon partner with the military and open a “Woodford Reserve Room” the Fort Knox Army Base in Fort Knox, Kentucky.
This will be the only branded Woodford Reserve Room in the Army, and the only “Bourbon” themed room at a military base which we are are aware of.
This room will be the premium essence of the Woodford brand, with copper walls, barrels around and above the bar, and images from the distillery.
Woodford Reserve tells us that with the many troops who come through Ft. Knox as a duty station or for training, they hope the troops they will take away a little piece of bourbon country and the Woodford Reserve brand with them.
