On June 12, I got to attend a private event hosted by the Original Makers Club and they partnered with Woodford Reserve and County Club. The OMC hosts several events throughout the year at various places.
“The Original Makers Club is dedicated to bringing you content that illustrates, creates, documents and archives the culture of a chosen city. Currently curating Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati & Brooklyn. Since early 2012, Original Makers Club has curated a series of events in Kentucky and beyond that bring our publication, members and city to life. Since then Original Makers Club has produced dinners, polo exhibitions, derby parties, the KY Bourbon Affair, Garden & Gun Magazine horse racing events, southern Bourbon celebrations and so much more. These events carry the intent to reveal the many talents of our members to a community that yearns for events that are concerned more about going into depth, and not breadth.” —via

They also have one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world. Read More
