Join us for an evening of bourbon history, A Van Winkle 12yr Bottle Raffle, lore and of course, sampling!
Tim Knittel is a former Kentucky bourbon industry insider with over a decades experience in bourbon education. He is also a certified Stave & Thief Society Executive Bourbon Steward (often compared to a Bourbon Sommelier) which is the highest classification available for a professional bourbon educator. Tim will be serving up 4 straight bourbons, some which you’re familiar with and some not, while the chefs at the Christopher Conference Center will be pairing each one with a course of food. Dinner is served at 8, cocktail hour at 7, cigar hour at 6. This event WILL SELL OUT!

Van Winkle Special Reserve Lot B Raffle
This is a bottle of the famous Van Winkle 12 year old Lot B.
This Kentucky Bourbon can stand up to any Cognac as an after-dinner drink. The overall character is rich, deep, elegant and balanced. This sweet, full-bodied spirit has been described by some as “nectar,” and is the perfect combination of age and proof. Its twelve years of aging in charred, new American oak barrels and bottling at 90.4 proof seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant dram. Sip it neat, or add a little water or ice and watch it evolve. Nose: Incense, clove, wood, pear cider, honey, beeswax, and red currant. Palate: Oak-inflected upon entry. Finish: Cola, coffee, and bitter herbs
Tickets for the raffle are $10 or 3 for 20 and a maximum of 300 will be sold. Winner will be chosen at the bourbon dinner and you need not be present to win!
