    September Is National Bourbon Heritage Month | 2015 Edition
    Print this page

    In August of 2007, The United States Congress passed a resolution declaring September National Bourbon Heritage Month.  Nowhere is there more bourbon heritage to celebrate than in Kentucky, and Louisville is densely packed with historical bourbon related sites.  Many Louisville establishments are having special events to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month.  Here is what I’ve found so far:

    -Thursdays from 3-7 Matt Landan is bartending at Haymarket and teaching about different bourbon topics each night

    -Throughout September, post a pic of your Angel’s Envy to social media using the hashtag #AE4thetrees and Angel’s Envy will plant a tree

    -September 2nd, 8 p.m. at Haymarket celebrate George Garvin Brown’s birthday with the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon Release Celebration
