Kentucky Bourbon Barons - Chet Zoller
Thursday, March 1, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
When you think of Kentucky, bourbon is one of the things that comes to mind. In the past, there were close to 1,000 bourbon brands from small and medium distilleries, many of which are no longer in existence.
In Kentucky Bourbon Barons, author and bourbon aficionado Chet Zoller will discuss the unknown distillery brands found in his popular book, Bourbon in Kentucky.
Covering the peak bourbon period from 1836 to prohibition, Zoller has compiled what is thought to be the first and only authoritative catalog of bourbon distilleries in Kentucky.
Chester “Chet” Zoller is a native of Louisville. In 1998, he along with his son Trey established the McLain and Kyne Distillery Company, home of Jefferson’s Reserve, Sam Houston, and Jefferson’s bourbon.
Please join us for a reception sponsored by Castle Brands featuring Jefferson’s Reserve bourbon as we learn about this integral part of Kentucky’s bourbon history.
There is a charge of $15 for Filson members ($20 for non-members). Please visit us online at www.filsonhistorical.org or call 635-5083 to make your reservation!
