A Southern Bourbon Soirée

On September 9, 2021, Garden & Gun and Louisville Tourism welcomed readers to the Garden & Gun Club in Atlanta for a special celebration of Bourbon Heritage Month. During the dinner’s two seatings, guests enjoyed craft cocktails and tastings from Louisville’s own Angel’s Envy, as well as a decadent Kentucky-inspired meal prepared by chef Ann Kim.
