Learn About Bourbon Distilling February 11

Bourbon began on a pretty small scale. Craft brewers made their own blends that were sipped by a small few. So how the heck did bourbon become an industry that would end up sending bottles of amber liquid all the way around the world? Go find out at a special event about the Bourbon Business at the Filson Historical Society this February.

The Bourbon Business

Go to the Filson Historical Society from 6 to 7 pm to learn more about how bourbon went from small craft brewers in the wilds of Kentucky to a huge business that has a presence at every corner of the globe.

Bourbon Business at Filson Historical Society

The bourbon business completely transformed in the 1800s, turning into a huge industry. This special lecture will tell you the tale of two different distilleries and the tale of bourbon itself. The Filson Historical Society is in Old Louisville at 1310 S. 3rd Street. Many of Kentucky’s early bourbon barons helped to build this part of Louisville, which was once the playground for the city’s rich and elite.
