A Day at the races is no day at the races without the Whisky Chicks and Brown Forman! The weather was perfect at Churchill Downs, which is one of the most famous horse tracks, stemming from the long tradition of the running of the Kentucky Derby.  The atmosphere was great for betting and dabbling in a couple of spirits. Completed by a view from the Brown Forman Suite. The Brown Forman Corporation is one of the largest American spirits and wine companies. Their brands can be found in over 160 countries, which include Woodford Reserve, Old Forester and Jack Daniel’s.

This was all organized for Mother’s Day by the Whisky Chicks. If you do not know who the Whisky Chicks are then you should! It is an organization that allows women of all ages (21+) to come together to embrace the unique taste’s of whiskey. They pride themselves on being libation liberators; meaning they help women appreciate and love cocktails that are outside of their standard norm. They are whisky educators promoting knowledge of a drink that is rich in Kentucky history, and friend facilitators allowing others to meet and form lasting friendships. This Mother’s Day Event was truly wonderful for all who attended.
