Come See Me At the New Orleans Bourbon Festival, March 24-26
The New Orleans Bourbon Festival is a new addition to the annual whiskey show calendar. It is unusual for several reasons. It is a bourbon festival, not a whiskey festival. It is in New Orleans which is, well, New Orleans. And I will be there.
My official presentation is at 10:30 AM on Saturday morning, when I'll speak about "The State of the Industry." We'll look at bourbon's rich history and dynamic present, and make a few predictions about the future. I'll allow plenty of time for Q&A.
In addition, I expect to be around all weekend at the grand tastings and other events. Feel free to come over and say hey.
Most festival activities are at the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center. Weather-wise, this is just about the best time of year to visit New Orleans. I hope to see you there.
