From the dark days of the 1970s and 80s, bourbon has risen to unprecedented heights today.

A few stats:
• More than 1,000,000 tourist stops at Kentucky bourbon distilleries the last two years,
• Since the turn of the century Kentucky Bourbon production has skyrocketed more than 315 percent to 1,886,821 barrels in 2016, and
• More than $1.1 billion in capital projects has been completed or is planned and underway in the past five years and the next five years, including new distilleries and aging warehouses to bottling facilities and tourism centers.

🥃 With over 30 active and planned distilleries in Kentucky, the question is: how did bourbon get so big?

In this class, we’ll look at the premiumization of bourbon; the introduction of single barrel bottlings, small batch offerings and limited releases; bourbon tourism; plus craft and experimental products and ‘near bourbons.’ We’ll trace a line from Elmer T. Lee and Booker Noe through new concepts like second maturation and unusual grains to the plethora of options available to consumers today.

(statistics courtesy the Kentucky Distillers’ Association)

🥃 Why is bourbon back? Come taste and learn! 🥃

This class is the third in our year-long “Bourbon University” with a new theme offered each month. No need to attend them all – mix and match as you like!

$35 per person, class includes guided bourbon flight and light food. Dinner reservations at Castle Farm Restaurant available for after the class.

Hosted by Together Frankfort

The public is invited to a panel discussion on Media Matters: The Importance of a Free Press, hosted by Together Frankfort on March 20, 2018, 6:30-8:30 pm at the KSU Cooperative Extension Building. A hallmark of a democratic society is freedom of the press, which has come under scrutiny in recent years. The ability to distinguish professional journalism from false reporting is critical for both an informed electorate and elected decision-makers.

Press and media specialists will discuss these topics in a panel moderated by Dr. Crystal de Gregory, director of Kentucky State University’s Atwood Institute for Race, Education, and the Democratic Ideal. Confirmed panelists include Deborah Yetter-Courier Journal, Laura Cullen-Glasscock-The Kentucky Gazette, Chanda Veno-The State Journal, and Jackie Carfagno-Herald-Leader (retired). There will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions of panelists to learn how various forms of media inform leadership and governance.
Together Frankfort is a non-partisan, volunteer group that seeks to exercise and protect democratic principles through public engagement and education. Info: Karen Armstrong-Cummings, 502-330-9115, togetherfrankfort2017@gmail.com
