7. Get a bottle signed.
Looking at the various picks that bourbon provides, it goes without saying that the industry is booming. In recent years, we have seen more and more craft distilleries pop up across the country. There are many distinct locations specializing in their bourbon offerings. And with a distillery, you have onsite the master distiller. While this is not required for an operating distillery, the master distiller holds the key to their products’ success. If they allow the quality to dip, then the entire brand suffers. A lot of responsibility falls on their shoulders, so each master distiller works tirelessly to ensure a consistent and delicious product is released to the mass consumers.
So, why and how do I get a bottle signed from them? Well, it is part timing and part commitment. When you decide to get a special bottle signed, you must be able to visit when the master distiller is available. Of course, with their schedule this window of opportunity is small and limited to specific locations or events. It is important to appreciate the time spent in the presence of a master distiller. So, getting a signature can represent your appreciation of the distiller’s time spent on the product, and with you, a bourbon enthusiast and satisfied customer. View it as a thank you for the hard work and quality bourbon being produced.
