In order for us to truly uphold our distinguished bourbon culture, the front lines of our hospitality industry have to be armed with this knowledge to provide correct information to connoisseurs, tourists, teetotalers and everyone in between. This is the idea behind the Stave & Thief Society, a bourbon certification program created by the Distilled Spirits Epicenter in downtown Louisville.

Stave & Thief began in early 2015 and has since certified more than 25 establishment members (bars, restaurants, distilleries, etc.) and 150 individuals. The curriculum was created by an advisory panel put together by the Epicenter that consisted of industry experts from both the bourbon and hospitality industries. And it’s the first bourbon certification program to be recognized by the bourbon industry. As an added value, members have exclusive access to industry experts, private sensory training and networking events.
