Bill Meck - Chief Meteorologist, LEX18
"When I joined the Lexington Bourbon Society my bar consisted of a bourbon or two. I'd run out and just go get a bottle of a nice upper mid range bourbon...which back then you could actually find! My bar and stock now holds about 25 different bourbons ranging from collector's items to some wonderfully delicious pours that I never would have known about in my old world. I even went on a barrel selection at Buffalo Trace through the Society. How cool is that?
Not only has my collection of bourbon grown, but so has my group of friends. These are some of the most down to Earth and fun people you'll ever meet. We meet...we drink a little bourbon...but most importantly, we have fun. The group has grown tremendously and outings range from Keeneland to just a gathering to philanthropic events. It's an honor, privilege, and just a blast to be part of such a group."
John Sirianos - Palm Beach Bourbon Society
"There’s a saying in America, “That’s the Real McCoy!” Genuine. That name is no stranger to Kentucky! Well, LBS is the real McCoy! No flash, just genuine. Good people sharing, supporting, educating and (for me, mentoring) the rest of us on Bourbon. Of course, no organization thrives like this without quality leadership. You’re good people, you care about others. Tough to come by nowadays. Of course, your knowledge of bourbon is second to none. Hard to exist in greater Lexington, let alone Kentucky without learning a thing or two about bourbon. But it doesn’t stop there with LBS, you share it. I am privileged to be a member of this fine society. I thank you all for your friendship, leadership and support."
"I have been a member of LBS for almost 4 years now, and I have met some really great people. I have had some stellar bourbon and the fellowship and generosity of this group is amazing. I love that we get to drink bourbon and support local charities!"

"For years I was under the impression that I would simply be ‘paying to do what I could already for free.’ After meeting dozens of people with the same passion and getting more involved, I found that I wished I had joined earlier. It’s a group of quality people who are welcoming and eager to help people learn and expand their knowledge into such a great part of Kentucky heritage."
