Last Minute Gifts: Bourbon Experiences

I don’t know about you, but I’ve reached the point in my life where I don’t need any more stuff. I’d rather be going out and doing things and racking up the memories instead. When bourbon is your first love, you probably don’t need yet another bottle, and what are the chances you will be able to get something new and different anyway? But since it’s the season for gift giving, it’s time to get creative and consider giving the bourbon lover in your life an experience gift instead. Here are some of the coolest ones I have found:

  • Behind The Scenes Tour at Castle & Key – Do you want to be the first among your friends to see this Bourbon Phoenix rising from the ashes? Get in before tours officially open to the public!
  • Aroma Academy at Moonshine University – Do you ever wonder where people get those strange aromas like toffee and butterscotch in bourbon? Wonder no more! Anyone can train their senses to pick up the subtle nuances of America’s Native Spirit!
  • Jim Beam American Stillhouse - Fantastic events from cocktail classes to distillery tours and other worthwhile educational seminars happen throughout the year.
