The Bourbon Capital Alliance, in partnership with the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, is thrilled to announce the grand opening of the Brindiamo Penthouse, located on the top floor of the iconic Spalding Hall in downtown Bardstown. This magnificent space, made possible by a generous $150,000 donation from the Brindiamo Group, a Nashville-based beverage alcohol industry consulting firm, promises to become a centerpiece for bourbon enthusiasts, reflecting Bardstown’s status as the Bourbon Capital of the World.
The Brindiamo Penthouse will serve as a multifunctional venue for the Bourbon Capital Alliance, offering an exclusive setting for member meetings, tastings and enhanced exposure to the nine partner distilleries. The space will also house the Bourbon Capital Academy’s purpose-built classroom, designed to provide an immersive bourbon education experience with sensory components, interactive elements and the renowned Taste of Bardstown flight board featuring delectable bourbons from partner distilleries.
Jeff Hopmayer, Founder of the Brindiamo Group, expressed his support: “By contributing to the funding of this exceptional facility, Brindiamo Group is proud to be a part of advancing the Bourbon Capital Alliance, Kentucky Bourbon Festival, and the Bourbon Capital Academy. This dedicated space will serve as a focal point for raising awareness and knowledge about bourbon, further enhancing the global success of Kentucky bourbon.”
“We could not be more excited to help create and unveil the new Brindiamo Penthouse,” said David Mandell, Chairman of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. “This tremendously generous gift supports the bourbon industry, the KBF, and the community of Bardstown, Kentucky.”
The concept and design of the Brindiamo Penthouse were meticulously crafted by the acclaimed firm Joseph & Joseph + Bravura Architects, renowned for their expertise in creating exceptional spaces.
