Bourbon Classic celebrates three years of being Louisville’s premiere event which unites bourbon enthusiasts, distillers, and all those in the world of bourbon!
In the video above BourbonBlog.com‘s Tom Fischer interviews Bourbon Classic founders and organizers Justin Thompson, Seth Thompson, and Ryan Hardesty of The Bourbon Review at the exclusive pre-event reception called “Bourbon Classic Taste.” This reception was a new addition to Bourbon Classic where Julian Van Winkle and Preston Van Winkle appeared with fine bourbons at a rare tasting hosted at Copper & Kings American Brandy. This reception may be one of the few places we had ever seen Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year-Old along with Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15-year-old and 20-year-old expressions all poured in the same place.
This profoundly unique event also featured samplings of brandy and absinthe from Copper and Kings along with a host of other bourbons from Buffalo Trace and Four Roses. The drinks were complimented by pork dishes being demonstrated and served by Chef Edward Lee. Lady Fingers Catering also served a spread of tempting southern-infused cuisine.
The Bourbon Classic was co-founded by Tony Butler of FSA Management Group, an established event planning and marketing firm based in Louisville, and Justin Thompson, Seth Thompson, and Bob Eidson of The Bourbon Review.
