And So, the SECOND of our Long-Awaited announcements is here!
WE’RE HAVING A PARTY!
The Bourbon Guys, in collaboration with our friends at DEPs Fine Wine & Spirits, are inviting 30 or so of our closest friends to attend our first Private Barrel Launch Party. DEPs is hosting the event on Tuesday, 5/27/14, at 6:30 p.m. at their Fort Thomas location just off of I-471. If you haven’t been to this facility, we are sure you will be amazed at the vast selection of wines and spirits!
In attendance will be the legendary Jimmy Russell, Master Distiller of Wild Turkey, to share some of his vast knowledge on bourbon and its history (and sign a bottle or two!). Jimmy is a warm and welcoming Kentucky gentleman, a treasure of the commonwealth who you won’t want to miss!
It is also our very special pleasure to have entrepreneur and mixologist extraordinaire, Molly Wellmann, in attendance. Molly is an author, bourbon champion, proprietor of several of the most popular gathering spots in town, and a great friend to The Bourbon Guys.
But this gathering is about the bourbon!
You will have the opportunity to taste (and purchase!) two very special Private Selection Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Bourbons, chosen by The Bourbon Guys (Jason, Larry, & Tim) and the staff at DEPs Fine Wine & Spirits! Space is very limited, so PLEASE RSVP if you are able to attend. We will send out confirmations to the first 30 people who respond. This is a very special and very limited release, something you won’t want to miss! We look forward to seeing you there!
You can find directions to the DEPs location right here.
Bourbon lovers find all sorts of ways to express their passion for their favorite brown spirit. T-shirts and shot glasses adorn the gift shops of every distillery. Collectors scour websites and festivals for lapel pins. And oh, the things we do with barrels! Both of The Bourbon Guys have tables made from bourbon barrels. But recently, we met someone who took his passion one step further and made it a permanent part of his body.
Shawn Doan and his girlfriend April Manning, of Terre Haute, Indiana, attended a tasting and dinner with Wild Turkey master distiller Jimmy Russell at Arnold’s Bar and Grill, Cincinnati’s oldest tavern. Shawn rolled up his shirtsleeves to reveal this tattoo that pays homage to his favorite bourbon brand, Wild Turkey. He was kind enough to allow The Bourbon Guys to photograph the ink masterpiece. And Jimmy Russell himself was kind enough to provide his autograph for Shawn — who, as it turns out, already had an appointment set for the next morning to permanently ink the living legend’s name underneath the familiar logo!
