Kentucky Peerless: Before, During & After
It’s not every day that a distillery releases their first rye whiskey in 100 years.
Before any of us were born, The Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. was making whiskey. In the 1880’s they were a powerhouse in the industry. Unfortunately, Prohibition forced them to close their doors in 1917 and the Peerless label laid dormant—until now.
100 years later, original founder Henry Kraver’s legacy lives on through his great grandson, Corky Taylor, and Corky’s son, Carson Taylor. Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co. will be releasing the brand’s first whiskey, Peerless Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey. The Whisky Chicks get to be among the first to have a taste of this heavily-anticipated spirit.
During the evening of Wednesday, June 14th from 6:30-8:30pm, we will toast the evening with specialty cocktails prepared by Over the 9 mixologist Emily Wayman. Guests will have the chance to mix and mingle, enjoy light appetizers and casually explore the distillery at their own pace. There will be guest ambassadors available throughout the facility to share their passion for Peerless and answer any questions you might have.
At some point in the evening, we will gather together as a group as head distiller, Caleb Kilburn, leads us through a tasting of the new rye. Everyone will be given the opportunity to sample this delectable straight rye.
And if that is not enough, and you can still hang with the big kids, we will be heading to an After party – more details to come!
Tickets will be $25 for non-members and $20 for members. Tickets include a welcoming cocktail, access to the distillery, a Rye sampling, light appetizers and Q&A with Head Distiller, Caleb Kilburn.
Attendees must be 21. No exceptions. Drink Responsibly
