True Supply

Best. Bourbon. Weekend. Ever. (Deposit)

Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a bacchanalian weekend with our small group in the bluegrass to taste and select our own barrel of bourbon at Buffalo Trace, sample our stash of aged Pappy Van Winkle, and savor these other True experiences. (Reserve one of the limited spots with a $200 deposit. Full price = $875.)

Welcome Dinner Friday, October 5th

We’ll celebrate our arrival in the Bluegrass with a seasonal tasting menu from one of Lexington’s top chefs, along with a toast from our own stash of aged Pappy Van Winkle. Our pals from The Bourbon Review will also be on hand, to lead a discussion of the state of Bourbon and how to best prepare for our tasting and picking our barrel.

 

The Barrel Pick, Saturday October 6th

After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll board the True Express our bus and drive down the Bourbon trail to historic Buffalo Trace, the oldest and most award-winning distillery in America. We’ll take part in a private, behind the scenes tour, then head to the tasting room where three barrels of Bourbon will be laid out for us, and dozens upon dozens of Glencairn glasses. Here, we’ll go through these barrels—nosing, tasting, sniffing—and offer our opinions on which barrel should be selected for our community.

 

After the tasting, we’ll head over to the Buffalo Trace’s Master Distiller’s Room to discuss the barrels and feast on some of Kentucky’s best barbecue. True Express will then head back to Lexington for free time (and siesta!)

 

Sunday, October 7th

Horses get up early, and we will too! After breakfast, the True Express will head into horse country to Taylor Made Farm, and current resident of The People’s Horse, our very own and the first crowdsourced racehorse. She should be out in the paddock grazing, and we’ll be able to feed her carrots and discuss her progress with her caretakers and horse experts at the farm.

 

It’s a special weekend in Lexington, for its the opening of the fall meet for Keeneland Racetrack, one the oldest and most famous racetracks in the country. The races start in the early afternoon, and we’ll arrive just in time to start handicapping the races, fire up our cigars and link up with some expert gamblers we’ve met along the way. The last race ends around 6:00 pm, just in time to head to the airport in Lexington or Cincinnati to grab late flights home for those flying in. Best. Bourbon. Weekend. Ever.
