Join us at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in historic downtown Frankfort, Ky., to experience the 2023 VIP Reception & Bourbon Auction, an exciting night sponsored by Whiskey Thief Distillery.

Participate in a meet-and-greet with leaders in the bourbon industry and enjoy spirits tastings with the creators themselves! Tastings will include a pairing experience with Ilan’s Raw Chocolate. This is a great opportunity to socialize with fellow bourbon enthusiasts too! 

Listen to live music while enjoying a delectable feast of hearty appetizers and a next-level charcuterie table by Fork Knife & Spoon Catering. Goodwood Brewing & Spirits cash bar will also be on site to serve wine and beer options. The first drink is on us!

To top off the night, attend the Rare & Collectible Bourbon Auction featuring a barrel pick experience at Whiskey Thief Distillery and more fantastic finds! In addition to the live auction, there will also be a silent auction.

This event will headline an outstanding panel of guests who will be interviewed by Mike Hiatt, the founder, host, and owner of The Whiskey Trip podcast.
