It’s snowing in Raleigh, the roads are an absolute mess, and I have Pruitt’s bottle of Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 1838 Sweet Mash staring me in the face…I’m sure he won’t mind if I take a pour! So while I enjoy this fine glass of bourbon, let me take a few seconds to plug an upcoming event.
For those of you who have ventured out to Loretto Kentucky and visited the Maker’s Mark distillery, you probably already signed up for the Maker’s Mark Ambassador program. If so, then you probably already know about some of the fantastic events that they host from time to time, if not then I strongly encourage you to register. Trust me, you really don’t want to miss out on the upcoming Thoroughbreds and Redheads event on April 9th and 10th, 2010! Rumor has it that the good people at Maker’s Mark plan on showcasing a new bourbon, which is huge since they have traditionally focused on producing one specific product.
I have always respected Maker’s Mark for only focusing on mastering and producing one product, but I have to say that I am very eager to see what they do here. Those folks in Loretto sure do know a lot about bourbon and so I think we are going to witness the birth of a new star this April!
