Kentucky’s Original Black Bourbon Enthusiasts (KOBBE), the Louisville, KY philanthropy-based bourbon organization, announces the 5th Annual Bourbon & Benevolence Tasting & Charity Auction + Extended Hours (aka After-Party). Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 10, from 6:00pm to 11:00pm, and join KOBBE for a “Winter Wonderland” themed night. 

Bourbon & Benevolence brings attendees face-to-face with some of the bourbon industry’s biggest brands and offers a signature bourbon auction. Again this year the auction will benefit APRON, Inc., the local initiative that provides financial relief to food and beverage industry professionals.

This year’s auction will be completely online and hosted by professional auctioneer, Bill Menish who has nearly 20 years of experience. So again this year bidders can participate no matter where they are. We will have an amazing selection with an estimated 100+ items available. Some of these items include a William Larue Weller, Old Carter Whiskey, George T Stagg, vintage bottles, one-of-a-kind distillery experiences, and so much more. There will also be a rare opportunity for the general public to take home a few select KOBBE single barrel picks, including a few barrels selected for Bourbon & Benevolence. Keep an eye out for more auction item announcements and releases in the coming weeks on our website www.502KOBBE.com and KOBBE’s social platforms @502KOBBE.

The bourbon tasting portion of the night will include premium pours from some of the most prestigious brands. Full announcements coming soon! In past years we’ve featured Michter’s Distillery, Russell’s Reserve, Maker’s Mark, Smooth Ambler of West Virginia, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, and many more.

The event will also incorporate an outdoor cigar lounge powered by Smokeasy Mobile Cigar Lounge. Also available will be a custom KOBBE barrel-aged coffee, made in conjunction with Stave n Bean. Guests can enjoy multiple food trucks on-site, we will be announcing those soon. 

“Last year’s event was our best to date and we still plan to make things better with more seating, more food options and so much more! ” Jamar Mack, event curator said. The gala format of previous years is being dropped so attendees can come cocktail casual and comfortable as they enjoy pours from some of their favorite distilleries and bid on auction items for a good cause. The main event will end with a small break from 8:30pm – 9:00pm. For the extended hours of 9:00pm – 11:00pm, we will bring in a new DJ to set the vibe, with additional food & tasting stations that will rotate throughout the night.
