Bourbon Salon: Single Barrel Selections
Is single barrel bourbon worth the extra cost? This month’s Bourbon Salon will discuss the merits and art form of picking a single barrel product for a retail store.
Considered a premium class of bourbon, single barrel bourbon is distinguished from others by deviating from the standard practice of blending multiple barrels of a bourbon product for uniformity in color and taste. Instead, bottles come from a single barrel and are usually labeled with the barrel number they came from.
Bourbon Historian Michael R. Veach will lead the panel discussion featuring the following bourbon professionals: Jerry Rogers of Party Mart; Carla Carlton, a founding member of the Bourbon Women and a well known journalist who goes by The Bourbon Babe; and Susan Reigler, professor at Indiana University, Southeast and a noted bourbon author.
Tickets to the Bourbon Salon are $50 per person. Bourbon tastings of single barrel products are included in the ticket price.
“Single Barrel Selections” will be held on Tuesday, April 26 at 6:00 p.m. at Oxmoor Farm, 720 Oxmoor Avenue, Louisville. This event is limited to 30 participants.
