Mint Julep Month

Mint Julep Month Begins!

Kentucky Waterways Alliance is proud to be the beneficiary of this year’s Mint Julep Month, presented by Garden & Gun and Bourbon Country. Even with the Derby postponed, KWA will be celebrating Mint Julep Month from April 1-30, honoring Kentucky’s most precious resource: water, used to make our most valuable resource: bourbon. KWA is thrilled to be featured in the April/May issue of Garden & Gun magazine, in newsstands March 17. Be sure to pick up your own copy to read more about KWA and Kentucky’s own Wendell Berry. KWA believes that clean water makes better bourbon, and we work with Kentucky distillers on initiatives to protect this treasured resource, upholding the state’s tradition of exceptional spirits and further supporting local communities. Support KWA’s work to protect, restore and celebrate Kentucky’s waterways by making a donation or becoming a member today.
