Event Details

Ohio Valley women have been known to be ornery. But, did you know they were the best bootleggers? Ohio Valley women bootleggers hid flasks in their dresses, drove trucks filled with whiskey and ran multimillion-dollar bootlegging operations before, during and after Prohibition. To this day, in the hills of dry counties, unsuspecting Ohio Valley women are evading taxes and selling booze.


Fred Minnick is an award-winning whiskey writer and best-selling author. He is the author of Camera Boy: An Army Journalist’s War in Iraq, became a Wall Street Journal Best-Selling eBook. and Whiskey Women: The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch, & Irish Whiskey. His magazine writing and photography credits include Wine Enthusiast, Saveur, Tasting Panel, Sommelier Journal, Whisky Magazine and Whisky Advocate.

This event is free for members, $10 for non-members.  Reservations are suggested to assure seating.  Call The Filson at (502) 635-5083 or visit www.filsonhistorical.org.
