Second barrel finishes are trending in popularity in bourbons and other whiskeys. Distilleries across the Kentucky landscape are taking advantage of the unique flavor profiles granted from shifting a bourbon product to a second barrel to finish. One can finish in a barrel that once held madeira or port, or even in a barrel that held syrup or honey, to get interesting results that connoisseurs will enjoy.

Your ticket will include the tasting, snacks and desserts, and an informative and fun program. Curator Sarah will present an introduction, and Kentucky native/bourbon connoisseur, Dr. Nathan Steele, will serve as your tasting guide to offer context and guidance throughout your flight.
