Bringing People Together Through Bourbon
Bourbon is a unique part of the United State’s culture. Most people do not know the roll whiskey played in US history, but without it the US would not be what it is today. US whiskey has produced more tax dollars than any other product barring petroleum. The US is a great nation, but unfortunately it is divided today.
Bourbon as a product takes time to make, enjoy, and tends to bring friends and family together when people drink it. Bourbon Real Talk hopes to use bourbon’s communal nature to sitting down with people, drinking some good whiskey, and having real conversations to get to know the reasons why we are different. Bias is broken down by connection, and connection is formed by compassion and understanding. Pour a dram, relax, and learn real stories of people so that we can develop compassion and build connections that make us all better.

Fascinating story of excitement, tragedy, and rebirth!
