“Too much of anything is bad but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”– Mark Twain, Author

It’s fitting that one of the greatest storytellers in American History had this to say about whiskey many years ago.

And as an author who wrote about life on the Mississippi River we have to believe that Mr. Twain was writing these words specifically about American’s only native spirit, Bourbon, a spirit that he surely enjoyed as it passed down that mighty river regularly heading for New Orleans and the rest of the world.

Bourbon is all about two things: (1) the people (those who make it and those who drink it), and (2) good stories. There is nothing better than sitting around with friends, both old and new, sharing a delicious glass of Bourbon and telling great stories.

At The Bourbon Life our mission is simple – to share our passion for all things Bourbon with you.

May your glasses always be full and may you keep on living The Bourbon Life.

So……..about last nite. 

As part of the Bourbon Classic event I was invited to James B. Beam Distilling Co. for dinner at The Kitchen Table at The James B. Beam Distilling Co. last nite. 

Little did I know that part of my invitation included sitting at the same table with 7th generation Master Distiller, Fred Noe, and 8th generation Master Distiller, Freddie Noe, and their lovely wives, Sandy, and Kay. 

As always, the food and drinks surpassed expectations. 

But as good as they were I have to say that the company was absolutely incomparable. 

I enjoyed getting to talk all about country hams with Fred and Freddie and learned quite a bit about the process as well. 

And I always love hearing Fred tell stories about his dad, Booker, and his own early years in the industry. 

I just can’t say enough about the wonderful people who are part of the team at the James B. Beam Distilling Co. and The Kitchen Table. 

They are second to none in this industry. Hands down the absolute best. 

And I also have to say a very special thank you to Jason Betts and Natalie Deshazer. 

If you’ve not been to The Kitchen Table yet I want you to do two things: (1) smack yourself, and (2) make plans to go ASAP. 

And last nite, as the sign says, I came as a friend but truly felt like I left as family. 

Thank you, Fred, Freddie, Sandy, and Kay for allowing me to be a part of your evening last nite and for making me feel like family. 

It was my honor to get to spend the evening with you all.Image attachment
