Please join Duo and the Face of Bourbon himself, Fred Minnick, on April 28 for a virtual party to celebrate the Kentucky Derby!
If there are two things the state of Kentucky is most popular for, it would be bourbon, and the Kentucky Derby Races. Once a year thousands of people pack in at Churchill Downs to experience one of the oldest annual events in the country. The attendees at the event will commonly be sipping on some of the states best bourbon spirits along with the famous Mint Julep. It is even believed that Churchill Downs planted mint outside of the clubhouse in preparation for the first Kentucky Derby Juleps in 1875. Enjoy a night of history about the race, along with tasting some of the signature spirits that will make you feel as if you were in the stands on Raceday.
Our host for the evening, Fred Minnick, has an impressive career including authoring seven books, becoming a social media leader with over 100,000 followers, and appearing on Bravo’s Top Chef and Discovery’s Moonshiners, as well as hosting Amazon Prime’s Bourbon Up and Spirits Network’s Frontier Filmmakers and The Curation Desk. Minnick is the categorical leader in American whiskey and spirits podcasting. On The Fred Minnick Show, Fred interviews celebrities, business industry leaders, and professional athletes over whiskey and talks about life. Minnick is a senior contributor on spirits for Forbes, founding and former editor-in-chief of Bourbon+Magazine, and has written for Parade Magazine, The New York Times, Scientific American, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine Spectator to name a few. And on April 28, you’ll have the chance to share a drink with him!
Prior to the delicious evening, Duo will ship two small complimentary bottles of whiskey and some snacks directly to your home. The day of, you’ll sign into Webex for a brief introduction by Duo Global Advisory CISO Dave Lewis at 4:00 p.m. CT, and then we’ll dive into an interactive live tasting lesson from Fred.
