With a very high profile Kentucky bourbon distillery selling out (confirmed, but not yet announced, so I'll hold back from stating who it is here), as well as a handful of others around the country, you have to think we are at the beginning of the era where we will see large-scale buyouts of craft distilleries. If we use craft beer as the guide, it's safe to say this is only the beginning.
Next Friday, June 14, is National Bourbon Day. Look for drink special at your favorite bourbon bars and social media to be filled with bourbon photos. At a minimum, it sounds like a good day to crack out one of those rare/allocated bourbons you save for special occasions.
