The Filson Historical Society Presents “American Liquors”
An Opportunity to Have Old and Rare Bourbon Bottles and Memorabilia Appraised
The Filson Historical Society presents “American Liquors” as part of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association’s Kentucky Bourbon Affair™. “American Liquors” will offer advice and appraisals on rare bourbon items by bourbon historians and experts.
The event will take place at The Filson Historical Society, 1310 South Third Street, 40208 on Saturday, June 6, 2015, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Those dusty old Bourbon bottles and time-worn advertisements in the attic could be worth some money. Find out how much – and their history – at this year’s Kentucky Bourbon Affair™ fantasy camp. “American Liquors,” sponsored by The Filson Historical Society and the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, will once again offer advice and appraisals on rare Bourbon items as part of the five-day showcase of America’s only native spirit. Michael R. Veach, acclaimed bourbon historian and a member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame, will provide background on brands and items, while Bill Thomas, owner of the Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Washington, D.C., will be on-hand to appraise whiskey bottles.
To get the most in-depth research, ticket holders will be asked to submit photographs and descriptions to the Kentucky Distiller's Association before the event. Similar items may be grouped together for analysis and discussion to ensure an efficient and smooth process.
The event is FREE with a $10 donation encouraged. To register or submit photos and descriptions of an item, please email Adam Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
