I was on facebook last week, when I saw an event pop-up in my newsfeed. It was for a pop-up tasting for Four Roses with Master Distiller Brent Elliott. Like I mentioned before, when I met Jimmy Russell, it’s not everyday that you get to hang out a Master Distiller from one of the distilleries. So, when an opportunity presents itself (especially if bourbon is something you enjoy), you should take it!
There was a catch with this event. It was at a “secret” location, and the location wouldn’t be disclosed until that day around noon. Also, only the first fifty people in attendance would be allowed for the event. I made sure to gather my clothes, my camera, and everything I needed the night before. I wanted to be prepared and not be running around like a chicken with its head cut off hours before the event. I set my alarm, so I could be awake way before they announced the location. I wanted to be one of the first there, and I didn’t want to miss this opportunity.
