A Bourbon and
Saturday, January 5, 2019
Join for INDEPENDENT SPIRITS – a unique pairing of Bourbon & Cinema!
We will have a very special guest in store: Filmmaker Stu Pollard will join us as we merge the magic of making movies and selecting bourbon. Stu has an exciting new survival thriller (RUST CREEK) releasing this month. The film was shot entirely in Kentucky.
Being a Louisville native, Stu also has a natural affinity for our home spirit and in fact personally selected (with a little help from his friends at The Wine Rack) a barrel of Knob Creek 120. We will be sampling this delicious, hand-selected bourbon alongside a new Single Barrel offering by New Riff Distilling of Newport, KY.
Stu and actor Daniel R. Hill will be on hand to chat with us about the movie and the bourbons, sign bottles purchased in the store that day, and give away a few film related goodies as well. Please join us, & shake off that January chill with some stimulation for your body, mind and soul.
