Want to join The Voice-Tribune on a March 31 trip to Heaven Hill Distilleries? Then send us your favorite way to drink one of the Heaven Hill brands — and we’re not just talking about a recipe. What do you like to drink, where do you like to drink it and with whom? Post your response below in the comment section below by 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 18. Don’t forget to include an e-mail address and/or phone number (your choice). Then, keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for updates about which responses are our favorites.
Ultimately, five of our friends will win two tickets — each — for a day that begins at 10 a.m. on March 31 at Bourbon’s Bistro, where you’ll join a number of us from The Voice-Tribune crew and board a luxury bus from Mint Julep Tours for a trip to Bardstown. Once there, we’ll stop for a fabulous lunch at one of the area’s signature eateries before heading to Heaven Hill’s Bourbon Heritage Center. We’ll not only receive a grand, VIP tour that includes tastings and time with one of the Master Distillers. At Heaven Hill bottling plant, we’ll be greeted by Heaven Hill President Max Shapira and get an inside look behind the scenes, which includes visits to the Cordial/Liqueur Room, the labeling/dipping area and of course the gift shop. eventually, we’ll be back in Louisville by 5 p.m., where Bourbon’s Bistro will have plenty of specialty appetizer specials for us to enjoy as we recount the day and check out our individual bags of swag, which will each include — among other things — two rocks glasses, a signed bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon, and bottles of Pama, Hpnotiq, and Burnett’s vodka.
*You must be at least 21 to enter this contest and only refer to Heaven Hill brands — see more about them here. Also, please remember to “Think wisely; drink wisely.”
