Kentucky Distillers' Association announces first-ever membership drive

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Call it another sign of the bourbon boom.

For the first time in its 134-year history, the Kentucky Distillers' Association announced a membership drive Tuesday.

More than 20 new distilleries are opening throughout the Commonwealth.

And, for that reason, the association says it wants to "welcome the next generation of amber craftsmanship."

KDA President Eric Gregory said more than 50 leather-bound packets are being sent to all existing and potential Kentucky distillers.

The packets explain the group's mission and its criteria for joining.

The campaign's slogan is "We've been waiting for you since 1880," and features personalized copper membership cards.

The KDA was founded in 1880 to unite, promote and protect Kentucky's signature Bourbon and distilled spirits industry.
