Northern Kentucky Bourbon Women Launch Event
Bourbon Women (BW), the premier membership organization for women who are passionate about bourbon and bourbon culture, now has more than 500 members and continues to extend its reach with the formation of a third branch—this one in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area.
The Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati Bourbon Women Branch is hosting their launch event – A Spirited Night – Wednesday, May 11, at New Riff Distilling in Newport, Kentucky from 6-8:30pm. Guests will enjoy tastings and cocktails featuring Michter’s, Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Old Forester, and New Riff, prepared by bartenders from some of the area’s best bourbon bars: Newberry Bros. Prohibition Bourbon Bar, Wiseguy Lounge, Wellman Brands and Tom’s Papa Dino’s, catering by The Delish Dish and special guest Marianne Barnes, Master Distiller for Castle & Key. Ms. Barnes is the first female Master Distiller since Prohibition.
This inaugural event is open to Bourbon Women members and non-members alike ($30 members, $45 non-members for tickets purchased in advance online). Tickets also available at the door ($40 members, $55 non-members - cash only). Guests who purchase tickets in advance will receive a special Bourbon Women NKY/Cincy Swag Bag and all guests can take a guided “Distillery Experience” mini tour of New Riff. There will be information about membership and future programming offered at the event, but primarily this is a chance for people to come out, learn about bourbon and meet some amazing community members.
