With the 2012 Bourbon & Banter Pilgrimage open for registration, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek into some trip details over the next few months. To kick things off, I thought I’d share a photo of this kick-ass mini bourbon barrel I received from our good friends at Bluegrass Barrels. They were kind enough to provide me with the barrel so I could test it out and provide my readers with an in-depth review of their product. That review will be done over the next several weeks, and I can’t wait to share with you my thoughts and results.
I’m also excited to inform you that one lucky Pilgrimage attendee will win their own mini barrel from Bluegrass Barrels. That’s right, folks! Join us for the bourbon & banter, and leave with a barrel to try making a customized bourbon for your friends & family. And you never know…Bluegrass Barrels might have more surprises for those on tour this year.
If any of you have ever tried your hand at creating a modified bourbon using a barrel like this, please let us know about it in the comments below. I look forward to seeing a few of you in October on the Pilgrimage.
