Distillery to host First Friday, holiday open house

Wilderness Trail Distillery, 4095 Lebanon Road, will host First Friday as well as a holiday open house from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8. On that Friday, music by Jonathan New will be featured, as well as food by The Caterer, from 6-9 p.m. Anyone purchasing bourbon during the open house will receive a mahogany collector box.

Also, Brian Haara, author of “Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America,” will have a book signing 11 am. to 1 p.m. that Saturday. The book tells Bourbon stories, not dry history lessons. And it’s the only Bourbon book that uncovers the truth about Bourbon by not merely repeating marketing tales.

“The true history about your favorite bourbon brand is probably revealed in Bourbon Justice,” says Haara, a Louisville attorney. Tasting reviews of bourbon brands are strategically placed throughout the book to emphasize the historic plots.
