Meet The Women of Michter’s!
Newberry Bros. Coffee & Prohibition Bourbon Bar is proud to announce our Michter’s Bourbon Tasting Event on Thursday, November 8th, from 6-8PM. For the final bourbon tasting event in our 2018 “Inns of Bourbon" Event Series, we are thrilled to welcome Master Distiller Pam Heilmann and Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson as our Special Guests.
Kentucky possesses a rich bourbon heritage. And while we take great pleasure in drinking Kentucky's native spirit, we also find it fascinating to hear the stories behind the spirits. Our «Inns of Bourbon” Event Series offers a unique opportunity to enjoy both, in an up close and personal setting you won't find anywhere else.
Limited seating is available. Tickets will sell out fast, so buy yours now! Please note that we cannot offer refunds to this event; however, your tickets are transferable if for some reason you purchase a ticket and then cannot attend.
For tickets, or more information, please call Kim Newberry at (513) 300-1347.

Michter’s is proud to honor a historical legacy tracing back to the founding of America’s first whiskey company in 1753. Originally known as Shenk’s and later as Bomberger’s, the whiskey company which ultimately became known as Michter’s was founded by John Shenk, a Swiss Mennonite farmer, in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania in 1753.
Today, Michter’s has two locations in Kentucky – its 67,000 square foot M2 Distillery situated on 7.5 acres in the Shively section of Louisville and, currently under renovation, the architecturally significant, landmark Fort Nelson Building in downtown Louisville. The M2 distillery features a custom made 46 foot high, 32 inch diameter copper column still and a 250 gallon pot still doubler, both built by legendary Louisville still maker Vendome. It is also the current home of the 1976 pot still system and cypress wood fermenters originally used to produce whiskey at the previous Michter’s Distillery in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania. This system is slated for eventual installation at Michter’s M1 Distillery.
Thank you for helping us welcome Pam & Andrea!
