Bourbon Capital Alliance Announces Historic Location for the Brindiamo Penthouse in Downtown Bardstown
BARDSTOWN, KY (January 12, 2023) – The Bourbon Capital Alliance, in partnership with the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, has announced the establishment of the Brindiamo Penthouse on the top floor of historic Spalding Hall in Bardstown, Kentucky, the Bourbon Capital of the World. This highly-curated location was fully funded by a $150,000 donation from Nashville-based Brindiamo Group, a leading beverage alcohol industry consulting firm specializing in sourcing whiskey.
“We could not be more excited about the generous gift from the Brindiamo Group,” said David Mandell, Chairman of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. “Creating such a unique space within the Kentucky Bourbon Festival offices will greatly help further our mission to promote Kentucky Bourbon and Bardstown as the Bourbon Capital of the World.”
Sam Lacy, Executive Director of the Bourbon Capital Alliance, said “We are incredibly appreciative of the Brindiamo Group. The Bourbon Capital Guild will utilize the Brindiamo Penthouse for member meetings, tastings and increased exposure of our nine partner distilleries. Also, having a purpose-built classroom for the Bourbon Capital Academy will allow us to craft an interactive bourbon education experience replete with sensory components, experiential aspects and our Taste of Bardstown flight board with delicious bourbons from our partner distilleries.”
Brindiamo Founder Jeff Hopmayer added, “We are proud to help provide the Bourbon Capital Alliance and Bardstown with a world class facility to build on Kentucky bourbons success around the world.”
Renowned firm Joseph & Joseph + Bravura Architects lent their expertise in the concept and design phase.
