Friday night we attended the 1st Louisville Bourbon Classic. It was a hege success on all fronts! The Bourbon Classic is a weekend event exploring the “best of the best” in the authentic world of Bourbon, from the craftsmanship of distilling to the pure enjoyment of the spirit in its many forms.

The two standouts tonight taking the majority of the awards were Team Anthony Lamas (Seviche) featuring Four Roses Bourbon. Congratulations to Team Lamas, which included Bartender Jared Schubert from The Monkey Wrench and Four Roses which used both in all their drinks and food preparation.. Everyone did an exceptional job.

Also Congrats to The Bourbon Review for launching the inaugura Bourbon Classic tonight in Louisville, bringing Bourbon enthusiasts together! Without your hard work this event would never had happened.
