    Educating the spirit shop here in NY

    We had an interesting day as we brought 21 different kinds of bourbon to our local spirit shop to educate them and get a better selection happening.... Gettin tired of seeing the same ol stuff on the shelf....Most shops carry up to 9yo's and our collection starts at 12...lol almost. They had a great time and they learned quite abit about Kentucky bourbon.... We walked them right through the OF lines, then the EW single barrels, ec12 and 18yo, the Weller collections, the book,bake and basil, then onto the Van Winkles... We ended it with Rock Hill and Rowens Creek..
    They got quite an order going in next week when the rep shows up...It was a great time and if this is what it takes to get good bourbon local, then we're there....
    I also loaned them my copy of Sam Cecil's book to give them some history...

    Great idea! That's what I call proactive thinking.
