It started with a text late Sunday night, and then a call, and then another call. By that following Monday morning, I was cashing in my frequent flyer points to get myself to Louisville, KY for the following week where Brenne – as it turned out – was in fact being awarded in the 2014 Icons of Whisky USA ceremony.
I’m excited to announce that we won as “Highly Recommended” in the Brand Innovator of the year category. It was quite humbling to accept such an honor (and one that I didn’t even know we were up for!) especially when Brenne is still, in my mind, in it’s infancy and has barely been on the market a full year.
I feel blessed to work in an industry saturated with many wonderful and talented people. And I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to accept our very first award surrounded by some of my whisky idols and close friends. Congrats to all of my peers on all of your awards and nominations as well!
