Some of you may know Vince Carida. Vince runs the Owensboro Bourbon Society out of Owensboro, KY, and frequently comments on this site as well as many other whiskey related resources on the internet. Vince does a fantastic job with his Bourbon Society, bringing in leading industry vets to speak with OBS members during monthly meetings. I’ve even asked Vince to contribute a post on this site about starting a society/club devoted to whiskey. More on that later.
In addition to OBS, Vince has helped organize the Owensboro Bourbon & Jazz Festival that will go from Friday June 15th through Sunday June 17th. Below is a bit of information if you are in the area or interested in making it to Owensboro, KY for the event. There’s no doubt it will be first class!!!
