Needless to say, this isn't an everyday occurrence in New Albany, and I'm looking forward to attending.
I chatted with Ian earlier today, and places at the table remain available, though not many. The press release has the details, and it printed below, though first: What is the Old Forester Single Barrel program?
The Old Forester Single Barrel program is a private selection program in which retailers and groups can select and purchase full barrels of bourbon and have them bottled for their customers at 90 proof.
Take it away, Ian Hall.

On Thursday, January 21, 2015, the Exchange Pub + Kitchen with help from Brown-Forman, will launch its exclusive Old Forester Single Barrel. The celebration will feature a four course dinner with drink pairings throughout the evening as well as a few unconventional ways to imbibe bourbon-whiskey, all with the insight of the Exchange team and Brown-Forman Master Distiller Chris Morris.
This one-of-a-kind event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Exchange “Old Fo Patio Room” with a meet and greet, bourbon tasting, and bottle signing with Chris Morris. Taste the delicious exclusive single barrel of Old Forester with play-by-play from the people who selected it and the man that created it, with passed amuse-bouche from the Exchange culinary team.
By 6:30, as the guests settle in, a coursed dinner will begin. With the notes of the bourbon in mind, the culinary team has created a bourbon-inspired menu paired with all Brown-Forman products plus a couple of surprises from the Bar team sure to entertain palates.
Both Exchange regulars and first-timers are welcome.
It’s sure to be a great evening, so purchase your ticket as soon as possible from The Exchange Pub + Kitchen. Call us at (812)-948-6501 or come see your favorite bartender or server at the Exchange to reserve your place.
