'From humble beginnings, come great things’ said someone far more profound than a group of people with a shared love of drinking distilled grain but it nevertheless sums up the early days of the British Bourbon Society. Established in early 2016 by a handful of bourbon fanatics after one too many cask strength pours in Milroys of Soho, our infectious enthusiasm rapidly brought together a fast growing community of members hell bent on discussing (and tasting!) everything that is great about bourbon on this side of the pond.
We regularly organise exclusive events across London, Manchester and the UK for our members. These range from ticketed tasting dinners focused on new, interesting or just plain rare whiskies to informal tastings with the producers and brand ambassadors behind our favourite spirit.
Our Facebook group is a haven for British-based bourbon lovers, providing insight, discussion, advice, raffles, exclusive offers and everything else we can think of to share our appreciation for bourbon (and even the occasional Scotch and Japanese whisky).
The British Bourbon Society's ethos is refreshingly simple, ‘it’s all about the whiskey’ – we encourage everyone (of legal drinking age!) to get involved in creating a friendly, knowledgeable and, above all, unpretentious community based on our shared appreciation of America’s finest export.
