The B-Line® Celebrates National Bourbon Day June 14, 2022

National Bourbon Day is celebrated every year on June 14 and here at The B-Line® we can’t wait for 2022’s version!

Our B-Line stops are busy making tasty plans for the day. Here are the details, hot off the digital press:

Boone County Distilling Co. – “We invited the bars and restaurants along The B-Line out to the distillery in April 2022 to hand select a 7 year cask strength bourbon only available at B-Line bars and restaurants, not at the distillery,” said Jack Wells, Co-Owner, Boone Country Distilling. “What better way to celebrate National Bourbon Day than to release this barrel pick for bourbon enthusiast to enjoy, in partnership with these great NKY bars and restaurants?”

Boone County Distilling’s B-Line Barrel Pick is 74% corn, 21% rye and 5% malted barley. It will be available at all of The B-Line® bars and restaurants on June 14, 2022.
