We set another record for attendance, with 75 men coming to the Gillespie to see Master Distiller Chris Morris! As just the seventh Master Distiller in Brown-Forman Corporation’s 140-year history, Chris Morris is responsible for maintaining the award-winning taste of Woodford Reserve. A Louisville native, Morris has been around bourbon his whole life. His dad was a production manager and his mother worked in the art department at Brown-Forman.
Drake Hatfield of Hatfield Media sponsored the event and provided a delicious food buffet catered by Four Pegs Beer Lounge.
We met at The Gillespie on Market Street in downtown Louisville. The Gillespie is an event space located in an old bank building (it still has a huge walk-in vault in the basement!) Facility owner, Bryan Gillespie, generously made this space available to the Bourbon Brotherhood.
