Everything you ever wanted to know about America’s Native Spirit!  Why does almost all of this uniquely American spirit come from Kentucky? What goes into distilling and aging bourbon, and how is it different from other whiskeys?  Is the historical record advertised by the distillers factual or are these stories embellished?

Discover the science behind bourbon and explore a range of flavors as you taste different varieties, paired with delicious light bites.  Kentucky native, Randy Bruner, will walk you through the history, methods and myths related to bourbon.  Randy developed his interest in bourbon at an almost legal age, and has continued to follow trends in the world of bourbon ever since. He has visited every distillery in Kentucky, and makes an annual pilgrimage to seek out new products and craft distilleries.
