It started in 2011 with one simple goal – to spread the Bourbon Gospel. And for the past 11+ years, we’ve had a hell of a time doing it. Through our shared love of America’s native spirit, we’ve met new people, swapped stories and even starred in a few of our own.
But, along the way, we realized we had stumbled into something far more exciting and frankly more fulfilling than whatever was in our glass. A remarkable kinship – born in bourbon but cemented through genuine curiosity for the world of liquor and the resulting unfiltered conversations we call banter. It’s a big reason we’re still here today and the soul of what we’re building with the DrinkCurious community.
We’ve got our sights on going beyond spreading the Bourbon Gospel. We’re looking to unite a band of curious drinkers, original thinkers and just downright candid folks over intoxicating conversation. In renewing our commitment to unpretentious booze reviews, approachable content, and honest barstool talk, we’re creating a dedicated community fueled by personal passion and opinion unlike any other.
With a colorful cast of characters – from professional palates and cocktail connoisseurs to casual drinkers and bottom-shelf dwellers – our opinions may be varied but our mission singular: to help you drink curious. Please, pull up a chair, sign-up for DrinkCurious and let the banter begin.
