Today we’re super pleased to announce that Melissa Alexander will be joining the Bourbon & Banter team as a regular contributor. Melissa made her B&B debut last week with a post titled, “Bottled In Bond: A Brief History”. That post received nothing but positive feedback from our readers and has been shared over 232 times. Not a bad start at all.
Here’s a little more information about Melissa:
Melissa is an aspiring bourbon historian who began her romance with bourbon the night of her 21st birthday. She is studying for her Master’s in History at the University of Cincinnati, and works at Historic Locust Grove in Louisville where she contributes to their hearth cooking, distilling, and dairying demonstrations. In her free time, she enjoys stitching reproduction historical garments for living history events, and, of course, spreading the bourbon gospel to anyone who will listen.
Please join us in wishing Melissa a warm welcome and make sure to follow her on Twitter as well at @aglassofhistory.
