Kentucky Bourbon Benefit
The Kentucky Distillers’ Association, the Bourbon Crusaders charitable organization and Bourbon curator Fred Minnick have crafted an epic fundraising event to support recovery and rebuilding efforts from the tornados that ravaged Western Kentucky.
The Kentucky Bourbon Benefit will feature an online and live auction of exclusive private barrel selection experiences, rare and vintage spirits, and unique tasting and tourism offerings from Kentucky’s signature distilling industry and hospitality and charitable partners.
The online auction will begin Thursday, Dec. 16, at 5 p.m. EST and run until Tuesday, Dec. 21, at 10 p.m. A live-streamed auction will be held on Dec. 21 starting at 7 p.m. and will feature a dozen of the most elite and immersive offerings from Kentucky’s legendary distillers.
THE AUCTION WILL GO LIVE ON THIS SITE STARTING 5PM EST THURSDAY, DEC 16.
All proceeds will go directly to the state’s official Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund to assist those impacted by the tornados and severe storms of Dec. 11. The website to learn more or make a donation is https://secure.kentucky.gov/formservices/Finance/WKYRelief.
We are humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity of our distillers and partners, including many from outside Kentucky that offered assistance and items for the auction. Many thanks to all!
Special thanks to Westport Whiskey & Wine and auctioneer Bill Menish!
