Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a private cocktail class at the Jeptha Creed Distillery in Shelbyville, Kentucky, which is located only 45 minutes away from Lexington. It’s easily seen off of I-64 and is off Exit 32 in Shelbyville. There I got to learn how to make two of Jeptha Creed’s signature cocktails, the Bluegrass Belle and the Elderflower Sunrise.
Most people know of my love of bourbon and bourbon cocktails. The only experience I’ve had making cocktails was at my house and my drinks of choice were the classic bourbon and coke or the Kentucky Mule. I have never used the tools that bartenders use. I always eyeballed the ingredients when making my drinks, so I was super interested in learning about different spirits and making my own cocktail using a signature recipe.
