Andrea Meriwether | Black & Barreled: African-American contributions in Early Distilling
Bourbon Historian and Consultant Andrea Meriwether talks about her groundbreaking research and insights into the involvement of enslaved and free blacks in the expansion of farm distilling into an industry in early Kentucky. Ms. Meriwether calls bourbon “a conduit” into understanding of Kentucky’s economy, culture, and race relations, and into the lives of skilled black creators of a beloved American product. Learn more about this topic and how it relates to upcoming programs at Locust Grove’s farm distillery. Weather permitting, we’ll follow the lecture with a quick visit to see the distillery building. (Weather not permitting, a schedule of when you can observe the distillery in full operation will be provided). The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.
