Bourbons Bistro had everything ready to go for its 15th anniversary dinner in April…of 2020. Of course, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the Louisville landmark to cancel its plans, and there were times when it looked like the bistro might suffer the same fate as many other bars and restaurants that went out of business over the past year. Jason Brauner and his team made it, though, and will celebrate with a 16th anniversary dinner on April 21. We’ll talk with Jason about the events of the past year – and the 15 years before it – on WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, we now know more about Jeff Arnett’s future plans after leaving Jack Daniel’s ahead of a formal announcement next week, while Diageo plans a pricey release of rare Brora whiskies next month to celebrate the distillery’s reopening. We’ll also have details on two charity projects from the Bourbon world and much more on this week’s WhiskyCast!
