So it’s official. I’m now working in the bourbon industry as opposed to covering the bourbon industry with my new position — director of marketing for Mint Julep Experiences.
Mint Julep runs daily bourbon tours out of Louisville and Nashville, and they also own the Bourbon City Cruisers, which I still am a tour guide for part-time.
I’ve been enamored with the bourbon industry ever since I started covering it more than a decade ago, and now I’m proud to actually be a small part of it.
Now, don’t think I’m going to hang up my writing. I still plan to cover all the new releases and bourbon news here and with some other media outlets — which I’m working on partnering with now. I’ll definitely keep you all updated on when and where you can find my articles — if you care, that is. If not, then keep drinking the good stuff and don’t get fooled by the Claw.
I’ll also start working on those Tasteless Tastings I’ve been promising you for quite a while. Believe me, I’ve got a stockpile of samples to try — and I haven’t stolen any sneak peek sips yet … on most of them.
Also, The Bar Belle will continue — definitely here and perhaps back in column form if I can convince a local publication or outlet that they desperately need to run it.
Looks like I have a lot of work to do.
