Maker’s Mark Heritage Event @ Liquor Barn
Dec 19 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Maker's Mark Heritage Event @ Liquor Barn

LBS had a great opportunity to be part of this first-time Maker’s Mark Private Select Heritage Release.

This unique, one-hour event with Bill Samuels Jr. and Rob Samuels is your opportunity to hear, see and savor the true heritage of the Maker’s Mark brand. Guests will not only hear about the brand’s origins. They’ll also get to see rare memorabilia Star Hill Farm, including the very first bottle of Maker’s Mark ever produced.

Taste through four all-new exclusive Maker’s Mark Private Select® offerings. Each of these rare bourbons, crafted with help by us, Bourbon Women , The Bourbon Society and USBG Kentucky, highlights a distinctive flavor profile achieved through the Private Select stave selection process. And you can be among the first to try the delicious results, plus pick up a bottle to take home.

Chefs from The LEE Initiative will be providing a small bite. Portions of the ticket price for these events goes directly to the LEE Initiative and their worthwhile efforts.

Here are the links required to get your tickets ($25 each) to the Liquor Barn events for the Maker’s Mark Heritage Event. These events will be your opportunity to purchase our bottle and all of the other three to lead your own blind tasting with family and friends over the holidays!

SOLD OUT: Bottled in Bond Day Tasting – Members Only
Mar 3 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
SOLD OUT: Bottled in Bond Day Tasting - Members Only

On March 3rd, 1897, Congress passed the Bottled in Bond Act. It was a hard-won victory that gave honest-to-goodness whiskey an indisputable mark of authenticity.

To be labeled Bottled in Bond, whiskey must be:

  • The product of one distillation season, from either January to June or July to December.
  • Aged in a warehouse for at least four years.
  • Bottled at 100 proof (U.S.)
  • Include the distillery at which it was made and bottled on the label.

One man led the way for this new legislation, Colonel E.H. Taylor., and whiskey has never been the same!

So, join us for this member-only event as Kris Comstock from Buffalo Trace Distillery talks to us about Colonel E.H. Taylor, Bottled-in-Bond, and more while we enjoy some of the E.H. Taylor Bottled-in-Bond expressions.

Sedona is a great place to go for a business lunch, to watch that favorite sports game, or to bring friends out for a social dinner gathering. They also have an impressive outdoor patio with a dedicated bar!

For our Social Sipper, the staff has patterned with the Lexington Bourbon Society to reserve a dedicated event space and bar staff to cater to our happy hour needs! The evening event will kick off with offering a discounted bourbon cocktail along with complimentary appetizers to help cure your Wednesday “workday woes”. There will be a featured distillery along with several discounted pours offered and other surprises throughout the evening as you mingle with us. This was a fan favorite last time with a great crowd, so we encourage you to leave work on time and be sure not to miss out on the fun!
