In March, Woodford Reserve and Liquor.com brought about 30 contestants in the Woodford Reserve Manhattan Experience to Louisville for an educational visit. They arrived on Sunday from all over the country and converged at 21c Museum Hotel. They had drinks at Rye on Market and a long night out to sample the city. Early Monday morning they boarded a bus for a tour of the Woodford Reserve Cooperage in Louisville, and then rode another hour to Midway to visit the distillery.

The bartenders received an extensive tour, with Master Distiller Chris Morris and Elizabeth O’Neill, a Certified Specialist of Spirits, Woodford Reserve Master Taster and Senior Quality Control Specialist, leading small groups.

Bottles of Woodford were opened for a rowdy ride back to 21c to freshen up for cocktails and dinner. After dinner the six finalists were announced and would go on to further rounds in the Manhattan Experience.

Papa John’s – Website Relaunch

John Schnatter, founder of Papa John’s, gets a hand from his 12 year-old son, Beau, in placing his first-ever online order to help mark the rollout of the company’s revamped website. Papa John’s was the first pizza company to introduce online ordering in 2001 at www.papajohns.com and the brand has since transacted more than $2 billion in online sales. Schnatter started the business in the broom closet of his father’s tavern 26 years ago and the company has grown to be the world’s third largest pizza chain. Until last week, he had never ordered a pizza online. Schnatter’s order, made from his home in Louisville, Ky., can be watched on www.facebook.com/papajohns.
