True Stories of Whiskey, War and Military Service

6 PM - doors open
6 - 7 PM - Access to The Spirit of Kentucky Bourbon Exhibition
7 - 8 PM - Program

Join author John C. Tramazzo as he shares stories featured in his new book Bourbon & Bullets. The names Bulleit, Stagg, Van Winkle, Weller and Elmer T. Lee are royalty on Bourbon store shelves, but the men behind these iconic brands share much more than just great taste in whiskey — they share stories of service and sacrifice for country.

From the American Revolution and the Civil War to the wars abroad in Vietnam and Iraq, whiskey has never been too far from the American battlefield and the stories weaving them together are fascinating. Tramazzo will talk about them as part of this special program. Admission includes a signed book for every guest,tastings of Pappy Van Winkle and Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. Rye, and select appetizers by Chef David Danielson from Churchill Downs and Old Stone Inn.

General Admission: $60 | Frazier Members and Military: $50
