Coastal 150 hosted our inaugural Bourbon on the Bay event on November 5, 2017 at GulfQuest overlooking Mobile River and the Port of Mobile. The event allowed guests to sample from twenty-five premium bourbons and whiskeys while enjoying a selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and local brews, a silent auction and live music.
Nearly 200 Coastal 150 members and guests enjoyed the evening, especially watching ships move up and down Mobile River. The most exciting moment came when the drawing for two very special prizes were announced, first, a family of five Pappy Van Winkle bottles and second, a grand prize of a bottle of 25-year Pappy Van Winkle.
We aregrateful to the sponsors and partners who made this event a great success in its first year: Presenting Sponsor Cooper Marine & Timberlands and Austal, Lagniappe, Naman’s Catering, Kazoola, Fairhope Brewing and Haint Blue.
A very special thank you Jenny Ely with Bourbonham for her advice, guidance and support. Save the date for the second Bourbon by the Bay scheduled for November 11, 2018 at GulfQuest.
