I just attended a class on Derby entertaining with Bourbon at the Moonshine University at the Distilled Spirits Epicenter in downtown Louisville. There is a class held on the second Saturday of each month at the center. Each class has a special Bourbon theme and guest speaker and some hors- doeuvres. Topics include bourbon history, legends and lesser known stories. Guests tour the distillery and sample some featured bourbons.
Last weeks class featured hints on creating the perfect Derby party and lessons on how to produce some special Bourbon cocktails. They promise to expand your knowledge of bourbon and offer a fun experience. The last class was so much fun the two hour time frame ran on to three hours and not a person left early.
Best to make a reservation. The cost is $29. Call 502-301-8126 or check the website at
