Bourbontucky Documentary Release Party

Bourbontucky Documentary Logo

Got something a little different for everyone this weekend. We received an email from the folks behind Bourbontucky–a new documentary debuting on DirecTV on January 24th.

Turns out that they’re hosting an exclusive gathering on Tuesday, Jan 20th at a secret speakeasy in Downtown Los Angeles. Guests will get to participate in a guided bourbon tasting and enjoy cocktails from some of LA’s finest bartenders. Guests will also receive free Uber rides to and from the event!

So how do you get yourself on the guest list?

Head on over to their website, read the details and do what they request. (only involves a Tweet)

Learn more about Bourbontucky

Insider Tip: The event is for folks in the LA area only so make sure you fit that requirement. As a reader of Bourbon & Banter we highly recommended that you add #bourbongospel to the tweet as well to make it clear where you heard about event. Trust me, it’s the details that matter. ;)

And if you get to attend please take lots of photos as we’d love to have you write a recap post about the event to share on the blog. Good luck!

2015 San Antonio Cocktail Conference

2015 San Antonio Cocktail Conference Header

Last year, several members of our team attended the San Antonio Cocktail Conference and had a helluva good time. This year’s event is fast approaching so we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of the dates and details. If you find yourself in the area next month we highly recommend you grab some tickets and avail yourself of the festivities.

San Antonio Cocktail Conference

January 15-18, 2015 • San Antonio, TX
The first of its kind in Texas, and now in its fourth year, the San Antonio Cocktail Conference was named one of the Best Cocktail Festivals in America by Fodor’s Travel. Like its predecessors the Manhattan Cocktail Classic and New Orleans’ Tales of the Cocktail, every year top bartenders and cocktail aficionados are brought together for educational seminars, guided tastings and cocktail parties. Houston Street Charities and the Conference will once again donate 100 percent of all money raised during the Conference to benefit children.

This year, the San Antonio Cocktail Conference will host classes and events such as the history of the Stitzel Weller Distillery and the road to Pappy (Pappy Hour – What’s All The Fuss About?) and an in-depth look of the Henderson Family and Angel’s Envy (Old School Distilling Families/New School Spirits). Tickets are available on a daily or individual basis. The Conference also features a slew of fantastic parties that allow attendees to eat, drink, and party their way through the city of San Antonio while learning about boozy history, mixology, and pairings.

Learn more and buy tickets for the San Antonio Cocktail Conference on their website,

New Bourbon Events Calendar

Bourbon Events Calendar Imae

As we get ready to head into 2015 there’s no arguing that it’s a great time to be a bourbon fan. There’s more products than ever, an amazing surge in great bourbon bars and a growing bourbon cocktail scene that ensures there’s something for everyone. Yet despite this explosive growth in the bourbon industry it can be somewhat difficult to keep your finger on the pulse of all things bourbon – especially when it comes to events, gatherings and tastings. Since we’re dedicated to spread the bourbon gospel here at Bourbon & Banter, we’ve decided to try our hand at putting some order around all things bourbon event related in 2015.

We invite you to bookmark our Bourbon Events calendar as a reference as you look to discover new bourbon events and gatherings to quench your thirst for America’s finest whiskey. And if you’re putting on an event or simply want to share your favorite gathering with others, feel free to submit your event for us to post and share with fellow Bourbon & Banter readers. There’s no charge for getting your event listed so please be patient as we have no idea how this grand experiment is going to turn out.

We’re also planning to do a blog post around the middle of each month that will highlight many of the bourbon events coming up in the next month. So if you want to make sure you get listed in that update as well make sure to submit your event by 12th of the month prior to the month when your event is being held. (e.g., If you event is March 5th, make sure to submit no later than February 12th.)
