Bourbon & Benevolence 2019 : A Benefit Tasting

KOBBE, the local African-American philanthropy-based bourbon enthusiasts club, announces the return of Bourbon & Benevolence. With an environment created for and open to all guests 21 and over, the experience has been curated to combine the bourbon experience with African-American culture. This event is an evening of good bourbon, good company, and charity. And it’s the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Bourbon & Benevolence will take place on December 12 from 6:30p.m.-10p.m. at the Ice House.

Fourteen of the most sought after distilleries will be in attendance. Russell’s Reserve will convert the Ice House’s entire mezzanine into a “Glamping” installation. Michter’s Distillery and Bulleit Frontier will also have unique installations of their own.

Additional distilleries include Heaven Hill Distillery, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, Old Forester, Smooth Ambler Spirits, Maker’s Mark, Jeptha Creed Distillery, New Riff Distilling, Limestone Branch Distillery, and Rolling Fork Rum. Plus, for the non-drinkers and designated drivers, The Mocktail Project will be on hand mixing impressive mocktails. Wine lovers can enjoy the full lineup from Old 502 Winery.

Food options include passed hor d’oeuvres, a buffet station, and a dessert bar to finish the night. The event will feature a complimentary bar, brand activations, and an interactive gaming area supplied by RecBar.

Guests will enjoy a live and silent auction with items ranging from rare and allocated bourbons to unique distillery experiences, and more. All funds raised through the auction will benefit the Chestnut Street Family YMCA.

Bourbon & Benevolence sold out last year and the same is expected this year. For the second year, KOBBE genuinely thought of everything from the curb when you arrive, to the last call. If you like bourbon, love bourbon, or want to see what it’s all about, you need to be at Bourbon & Benevolence.

Bourbon & Benevolence will create an experience highlighting bourbon unlike any other event.
