    Bourbon Authors To Host Benefit For Silver Trail Explosion Victims
    Print this page

    In the days and weeks following the Silver Trail Distillery explosion and fire, folks from across the state banded together to support and help both the injured distillers and their families.  Tragically, Kyle Rogers lost his battle on May 11th, but his cousin Jay is still fighting for his life.  Both families need help and support during this difficult time.

    Copper and Kings Distillery here in Louisville is hosting a Highballs on High benefit this Friday May 29th to raise money for the Rogers’ families.  Now another local event has been announced that will benefit the families.

    Local whiskey writer Fred Minnick has joined forces with Westport Whiskey and Wine to have a book signing benefit with other local writers.  The event will take place June 13 from 1-3 p.m.  The following writers will be on hand for the event:

    Reid Mitenbuler, author of Bourbon Empire

    Chuck Cowdery, author of Bourbon, Strange and Bourbon, Bourbon Straight

    Mike Veach, author of Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey

    Tim Laird, author of That’s Entertaining!

    Susan Reigler, author of The Kentucky Bourbon Cocktail Book and Kentucky Bourbon Country

    Lew Bryson, author of Tasting Whiskey

    Bernie Lubbers, author of Bourbon Whiskey Our Native Spirit

    Chester Zoeller, author of Bourbon in Kentucky and Kentucky Bourbon Barons

    Sally Van Winkle Campbell, author of But Always Fine Bourbon

    Albert Schmid, author of The Old Fashioned

    Fred Minnick, author of Whiskey Women

    Mark your calendars for this awesome fundraising event.  Bourbon brings people together in the most wonderful ways possible, even in the wake of such a terrible tragedy.  Thank you to all these writers for donating their time for such a worthy cause.
