    Members of Bourbon Distilleries "Clubs"

    Tis the season to get stuff from the distilleries.
    Today I got 2.

    One a tin from Old Forester as a member of the 1870 Society.
    In the tin is a velvet bag with a cork for bottles, it is nice.
    Topping the cork is a heavy metal circle medallion that states "Old Forester" on one side and "1870 Society" on the other.
    Also included is a memebership card with your truley printed on it.
    And a booklet with info on the Society and the bourbon, etc.

    Also got a booklet from the "Knob Creek Stillhouse" which explains the benefits of membership and their bourbon, etc.

    On further inspection, these two items are for joining, so the Christmas promos will follow later.
    Just thought I'd throw this out there and let's hear what others have received from the distilleries.

    Re: Members of Bourbon Distilleries "Clubs"

    I got a free bandanna and flask for signing up with Rebel Yell. This year I also got a promo code from Knob Creek for $10 off a Whiskyfest ticket, too bad I had already bought my ticket by the time I got this in the mail.

    I got a free punch in the face for being a member of the Ten High "High Flyers". The experience of drinking the stuff is similar, only more painful.

    Re: Members of Bourbon Distilleries "Clubs"

    I received my "freebies" from Rebel Yell a few months ago, three or four weeks after joining their website. For the record I was member number 15. Just today I received my gift from Old Forester, the aforementioned tin, membership card/packet and bottle stop. Joe

    I'm a MM member, hoping some FR swag is in the future. I got their great DVD awhile back, nicely done.

    Who's got the best swag?

    Cheers!

    Received my annual MM Ambassador Christmas gift in the mail today. A roll of MM wrapping paper, ribbon, and gift tags. Fun stuff. Wonder how long it will take for these to start showing up on ebay. Joe

    Re: Members of Bourbon Distilleries "Clubs"

    I received two calendars in the mail today from the Old Forester 1870 Society. Even though Jack Daniels is not a bourbon, I received a calendar from their Tennessee Squire Association Monday. Thanks and Happy Holidays to all the distilleries. Joe
    Here is my list for the year so far.

    #1. Rebel Yell- Flask, bandanna, and a certificate
    #2. Jack Daniels- Calendar
    #3. Old Forester 1870 Society- Metal tin, bottle stop, booklet, and two calendars
    #4. Four Roses- Christmas card and glass teacup
    #5. Maker's Mark- Wrapping paper, ribbon and gift tags
