A Message from our LBS President

Let's Share a Sip!

Hello and welcome,

The Lexington Bourbon Society is a local nonprofit focused on the philanthropic abilities of America’s native spirit. We embrace the heritage and history of our nation, Commonwealth, and whiskey. In doing so, we have the ability to share with others the production process, legal parameters and broad palate of Bourbon - America's Native Spirit - in a manner that benefits charitable organizations locally, regionally, and nationally. Thank you for stopping by, and we look forward to sharing a sip soon.

Cheers!

Our Story

The Lexington Bourbon Society (LBS) comes together to appreciate all things bourbon. Since 2007, our members have been proactive in growing the bourbon scene. Out of Lexington and the surrounding Central Kentucky area, our society is open to anyone over the age of 21 to join. We educate in bourbon's rich history and its humble start. We also collaborate with various distilleries, vendors, and leaders in this booming industry.
