9. Become a Bourbon Steward.
Just as Wine Country has respected sommeliers, the Bourbon Trail has educated Bourbon Stewards. Through the Stave & Thief Society, you as a bourbon enthusiast can complete classes and training to take your passion to the next level. Once completed and the test passed, you will be certified to properly share and educate others on all things bourbon. This is a great opportunity for those in the industry looking to grow professionally. It also designates a level of commitment and expertise on America’s Native Spirit. The highest level currently available to complete is the Executive Bourbon Steward program, where you are qualified to teach other aspiring Bourbon Stewards.
Are you ready to take the next step? The Lexington Bourbon Society can help. We have several members who are Executive Bourbon Stewards and have connections to the Stave & Thief Society. We highly recommend those interested to invest in the program and become go-to stewards appreciating all things bourbon.
