In February 2014, twenty three men gathered to enjoy some bourbon and camaraderie. That began a series of amazing bourbon experiences every single month for the following five years, as our little group grew to over 1,000 members strong. So with our fifth anniversary upon us, we planned a very special celebration!
Some of the things we planned for the party included:
- Welcome cocktail
- Bourbon tasting
- Free Bourbon Brotherhood Fifth Anniversary tee shirt, designed by Artist Aizik Migirov
- Kart racing
- Lots and lots of door prizes
- Drawing to participate in private barrel selection
- Axe throwing
One of the most exciting new bourbons on the market is from New Riff Distilling in Newport, Kentucky. We started with a welcome cocktail, followed by a tasting of their whiskey line-up including a Bottled-in-Bond bourbon, a straight rye whiskey and a barrel strength single barrel bourbon.
Our celebration was held at Bluegrass Karting & Events. The facility includes an indoor road course with racing style go-karts capable of speeds up to 40 mph. Approximately 8 karts compete at once for the fastest lap time. Race results with lap times and driver ranking are provided after each race.
