“One sip of warming bourbon gives me a Christmassy feeling, the spicy heat teasing out memories of the fragrant liquor.” — Lynn Marie Hulsman
Each year, we bring holiday cheers celebrating our Bourbon Advent.
Whether you are sipping a premium pour or a special barrel pick that is no longer available, season's greetings as we participate in Bourbon Advent throughout the month of December.
The Lexington Bourbon Society creates and distributes specialized advent calendars to our bourbon society each year. We celebrate the holidays and kick off the festive season with our calendar exchange event before Thanksgiving. And by providing a bottle poured into 24 labeled 1oz. bottles, members can enter one of the calendars we offer and follow along online each day leading up to Christmas Day!
The spots are first-come, first-serve. Calendars fill up fast, and only a handful of spots are offered for members to participate. We typically hold two calendars, ranging in themes from open whiskey to premium (minimum $75 retail) bourbon calendars—That leaves 48 spots to grab each year! And we finish off the event with your choice of sipper on Christmas Eve. What a fun way to showcase great whiskeys picked by members for members who sign up!
During the holiday season starting on December 1, be sure to follow along by liking us on Facebook at @LexingtonBourbonSociety. Let's celebrate the holidays and welcome the festivities each year through pours that warm the soul. Cheers!
Premium | $75+ Series
Our first calendar focused on premium bourbons submitted by our participating members. These pours were either hard to get or considered exclusive favorites savored by true appreciators of bourbon whiskeys. We featured several prominent distilleries in the industry as well as rising stars!
NEW | Blind Whiskey Series
Our second calendar focused on the art and skill of whiskey tasting. Everyone loves the challenge inherent to blind tastings! Each evening, the Lexington Bourbon Society will reveal its blind whiskey selection throughout the advent season. Join us as we explore the diverse world of whiskeys and put our nose, palate, and finish skills to the test. And, do not forget to rate your favorites each day!
