In case you havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t heard, the US Senate has declared September National Bourbon Heritage Month.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“How can I celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month?Ã¢â‚¬Â you say. Well, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m glad you asked. Drink more bourbon would be my first suggestion. And sales figures indicate that many of you anticipated my advice. Bourbon sales are up, especially for the premium super- and ultra-premium labels.
Keep up the good work!
Ã¢â‚¬Å“But isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t there somewhere that I can gather with other bourbon drinkers to celebrate this auspicious month?Ã¢â‚¬Â you persist. Frankly, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m getting a little irritated with your questions.
I was going to say that the 16th annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival will be held in Bardstown, KY September 11-16. There is a huge list of participating bourbons including Jim Beam, Woodford, Wild Turkey, Four Roses, Makers Mark, Bulleit, and many others.
