Willett's Night at the Museum

On November 13th, 1789 Ben Franklin asserted “nothing is certain but death and taxes”.  230 years later the Kulsveen family asserts life between taxes and death is best spent well into your cups. To commemorate this day in history, and because we believe in raising a glass because it’s Wednesday, the Kulsveen family invites you to join them for a night at the museum. Guests attending this intimate gathering will enjoy a Bourbon cocktail aptly named and served in the Champagne Parlor by Willett President & Chief Whiskey Officer, Britt Kulsveen, boots and all. Willett Master Distiller, Drew Kulsveen will be pouring Willett’s Small Batch Whiskey Collection in the Speakeasy. For one night only guests are invited to hear the Old Bardstown story straight from the horse's mouth, KY Bourbon Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Recipient, Even G. Kulsveen. 

Since the Civil War era, there has been a member of the Willett family distilling in our home state of Kentucky, and to this day, we remain independently owned and operating as a true family business.  Both the whiskey they craft and the stories they tell only get better with age!

Light snacks will be provided by Board & You

The very limited Willett Family Estate Reserve, Single Barrel, Cask Strength 6 Year Rye Whiskey - The Inaugural Sibling Selection for Coronation - has sold out.

A partnership made up of the Frazier, the Cave Hill Heritage Foundation (CHHF), the Louisville Metro Office for Women (OFW), and the League of Women Voters of Louisville (LWVL), is inviting everyone to come out on Election Day and say thank you to the suffragists that are interred here in Louisville.

The Frazier History Museum and Kentucky Opera present:
Welcoming Our Heroes Home: Bridging the Divide

An evening of conversation, camaraderie, and live performances exploring the journeys of local combat veterans, their families, and a community that welcomes them home. This discussion is inspired by Kentucky Opera’s upcoming performances of Glory Denied, based on the story of Colonel James Thompson, America’s longest-held surviving prisoner of war. Upon returning home from Vietnam nine years after his capture, Thompson was greeted only by his wife, Alyce. Neglected by his country and forgotten by his young children, Jim and his painful reunion with Alyce are the subjects of Glory Denied, an achingly beautiful story of life in the aftermath of war.

Join us for an evening of discussion with local veterans sharing their personal experiences.

Free admission and pizza courtesy of Papa John’s Veteran Employee Resource Group.
