A Message from Colonel Steve Akley
We've got some really great things happening at the ABV Network, so I thought I would summarize all of them and send them out to you in one consolidated piece. We really appreciate all of the listeners to our podcasts, viewers of our movie, and readers of Bourbon Zeppelin and our blogs. My sincerest thanks to all of you!

Spirits of French Lick Bourbon Life Experience
Today is the last day to enter in our Spirits of French Lick Bourbon Life Experience contest. All Patreon supporters at the $5.00 level of higher are eligible to participate. Here is a look at what is offered in this very special experience:

The Spirits of French Lick in partnership with the ABV Network, brings an opportunity for the Whiskey Connoisseur to “Respect the Grain”. Travel down to the distillery grounds in West Baden Springs, Indiana and engulf yourself in history, distilling, and the dark arts with our distilling team. Begin your day with our distiller, Alan Bishop, and our Assistant Distiller, Steven McNeely, by milling in locally grown grains. You will be educated in our methodology of alternate grains, terroir, alchemy, and barrel aging. Your experience doesn’t stop there as we will allow you to use the knowledge you obtained throughout the day to choose a private barrel to be featured in our tasting bar. At the end of your day you will be rewarded with a Spirits of French Lick swag bag to remember your experience by. As a bonus, the Spirits of French Lick will invite you back to participate in Michael Veach’s Bourbon Country Institute on Sunday, October 13th. Michael Veach is a member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame and is the foremost authority on bourbon history. The Institute is designed to teach those who want to learn more about their favorite distilled spirit, its history, as well as the attributes that make it different from other whiskeys available in the market. Upon completion of the 7-8 hour class you will receive a certificate of completion. Lunch will be provided for both experiences at our Vintage Italian Café!

Next month the contest involves a behind-the-scenes look at Maker's Mark, including fishing on the grounds with  Jason Nally, the head groundskeeper of this beautiful property.

Monthly Contests with ABV Network Challenge Coins
Featuring Fabulous Prizes
We recently issued our first-ever ABV Network Challenge Coin. Series 1 is called "Bourbon Lovers" and features the process of making bourbon on one side and a toast as well as the "rules of bourbon" (at least 51% corn, aged in a brand new charred oak container, etc.) on the other side. 

We are going above-and-beyond the normal uses for a challenge coin by offering a fun challenge each month with the coins. Just for taking a photo with your coin and posting on either Instagram or Facebook, you can win prizes like vintage bourbon, a bottle of Kentucky Peerless Bourbon, a Blanton's cigar and much more.
