FEATURED INITIATIVES

Brindiamo Penthouse

Opening in 2023, the Brindiamo Penthouse is a dedicated space for the Bourbon Capital Guild to meet, share and learn about bourbon from our nine partner distilleries, and much more.

As well, this space will host the 101 level Bourbon Capital Academy course, complete with a proprietary, Bardstown-centric bourbon curriculum, experiential aspects, and A Taste of Bardstown flight board with product from our partner distilleries.

The Brindiamo Penthouse was made possible by a generous donation from the Nashville-based Brindiamo Group, a preeminent beverage alcohol consulting firm specializing in sourcing whiskey.

Bourbon Capital Academy

The Bourbon Capital Academy is a series of proprietary, Bardstown-centric bourbon education courses. These courses have been built from the ground up with the input of our nine partner distilleries.

Launching in 2023, our 101 level course, Bourbon in Bardstown, will be hosted in our purpose-built classroom at the Brindiamo Penthouse at Spalding Hall. Consisting of experiential and sensory components, bourbon knowledge and Bardstown distilling history, this course is a unique educational experience. Of course, each attendee will get to enjoy our A Taste of Bardstown flight with multiple bourbons from our partner distilleries.

Bourbon Capital Guild

Launched in fall of 2021, the Bourbon Capital Guild is Bardstown’s premium bourbon society. Our 150 Bourbon Capital Guild members form the backbone of Bardstown’s “bourbon army.” They are given access to exclusive experiences at our nine partner distilleries, barrel picks, dinners, and much more.

The Bourbon Capital Guild is also a large proponent of bourbon education for our members and Bardstown at large. Utilizing the Bourbon Capital Academy, we will build one of the most educated bourbon societies in the country.

We’re working together with our community and valued distillery partners to build a better bourbon experience.
