In addition to the auction, Angel's Envy, Beam Suntory, Brown-Forman, Diageo, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Michter’s, Rabbit Hole and Wild Turkey donated in excess of $1 million directly to the state’s fund and Beam Suntory gave an additional $500,000 to the American Red Cross, bringing the distilling industry’s total contribution to nearly $5 million.


with the devastating losses from the tornados a couple weeks back, this is wonderful to hear how both bourbon companies and bourbon drinkers came together and helped. It's a fantastic cause, and it helped directly the area very near some of these distilleries.

this one got me misty:

The "Mayfield Collection" of 14 bottles recovered intact from Carr’s Steakhouse in downtown Mayfield, which was destroyed in the tornado, sold for $69,475. Nearly all the bottle’s brands are matching the sales prices with half of the money going to Carr’s for its 29 employees – who have a combined 22 children – many of whom are now homeless.


So remember, if you can give, please do, if you can't then drink up, it's for a good cause.

That is awesome.
It really wonderful, how small communities come together.
We recently found out some of the tornados touch down about 15 miles from where our old neighbors moved to.
He has been volunteering a lot, because he has heavy equipment experience.
