During this presentation, we'll talk about some of bourbon's legendary heists, colorful characters and complicated criminal plots.

Join us for a look at the crimes that a few got away with...and the unsavory schemes that got others caught red handed! 

Phil will also spend some time showcasing a handful of modern day bourbon bottles found on the shelf that are a true "steal" - tremendous whiskeys that can be purchased for $25 or less.
