Lexington Bourbon Society In the heart of bourbon country, we celebrate its heritage, Kentucky, and our nation.

Kentucky is known for some amazing products that provide comfort and happiness in the Bluegrass. Since 2007, our society has been proactive in the bourbon scene, sharing its legacy and ability to bring good folks together.

Partnering with LBS We would like to thank our families, friends, and sponsors across the state of Kentucky.

Throughout the year, our society partners with several distilleries, venues, and fellow spirit enthusiasts to collaborate on special events, exclusive discounts, and donations to charitable causes. In 2019 so far, we have raised over $20,000, surpassing previous successful years! Let us celebrate supporting our local charities while enjoying America's Native Spirit.

Below is a list of our sponsors and partners who work closely with LBS to provide the ultimate bourbon experience in the Bluegrass.

  • Wilderness Trail Single Barrel Bourbon

    Wilderness Trail Single Barrel Bourbon
    Wine + Market/LBS August 2019

    Brown sugar and cinnamon Teddy Grahams compliment the caramel and baking spice notes. The finish is medium with the spice up front, but a light sweetness that lasts.

  • Knob Creek Rye Single Barrel

    Knob Creek Rye Single Barrel
    Wine + Market/LBS April 2019

    Apricot spice enriched with oakey pecan. This rye hits you right up front, but lingers nicely with each subsequent sip.

  • New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon

    Wine + Market/LBS March 2019

    Chocolate covered coffee beans with a peppermint note on the end. The finish is shorter than expected, making you want more.

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."

Casey Allen Bright

"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."

"I have been a member of LBS for over 5 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!"

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."
