172 – BULLITT COUNTY, Lottery Dreams, and Buy/Sell/Trade of Brands on Bourbon Community Roundtable #25

I guess this is our silver anniversary! We are joined by Josh Reidford who is the producer for the new AMC movie, BULLITT COUNTY, that opens in theaters this Friday the 26th. We discuss the fears of what would happen if a bourbon enthusiast won the 1.6 Billion Mega Millions lottery then wrap up the show talking if we would ever see a buyout of another large brand.
