Over the past decade, Colonel Aaron at OKBB has accumulated an impressive collection of rare and “dusty bottles” stored in the bourbon vault. Many of these can only be found at OKBB, some of them have never been opened, and all of them are rare. OKBB decided to unlock the vault, dust off the bottles, and let them be enjoyed. These rare offerings will be available exclusively at OKBB and only on Wednesdays during September. Once these bourbons are gone, they are gone for good.

Prohibition Bourbon Bar, 530 Washington Ave., Newport, will have a rotation selection of flight and drink specials all month long. Reservations are strongly encouraged.

Rich’s Proper, 701 Madison Ave., Covington, offers Monday Night Barrel Picks, where guests can enjoy 25% off all barrel picks every Monday throughout the month.
