You’ve seen the logo everywhere from Louisville Burger Week to the WFPK 502 Local Originals Series. Those stately blue letters paying homage to the men & women who make the real source of bourbon magic…the barrels. They call them coopers & the newest product from Brown-Forman in 20 years made them it’s namesake…Coopers’ Craft.
Originally introduced to the market in 2016, the brand is now expanding its 82.2 proof Coopers’ Craft Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey & introducing a new expression, Coopers’ Craft Barrel Reserve, achieved by a unique chisel & charring of the barrel interior.
We enjoyed tasting both incredibly affordable, delicious brands at the New Orleans Bourbon Festival with Fitz Bailey, the National Brand Ambassador for Coopers’ Craft. Fitz also served us a bright & flavorful Kentucky Mule cocktail, & taught us to make our own savory classic Boulevardier!
Join Yes Louisville Content Coordinator & bourbon woman, Lori Mangum, as she chats with Fitz about the Coopers’ Craft products, its history, & his own journey to The Ville to represent this semi-sweet & sometimes spicy bourbon brand inspired by the people who bring it to life.
