Elmer T. Lee is turning 90. Wish him a Happy Birthday!July 28th, 2009
For those of you who don’t know, Elmer T. Lee is Master Distiller Emeritus of the Buffalo Trace Distillery, a true living legend, and man who has his own single barrel bourbon named after him.
He is turning 90 years old in a couple weeks. There will be a small birthday party for him, and I’m flying down to be there for the party.
I thought it would be nice if I we could let him know how much we appreciate all that he’s done for the bourbon industry and wish him a Happy Birthday too. If you would like to say a few words, please post them below. I’ll bring your well wishes with me and give them to him when I see him.
Maybe you tried his bourbon and enjoyed it? Maybe you appreciate what Buffalo Trace has done over the years (even back when it was called Ancient Age Distillery)? Maybe you met him at a WhiskyFest and enjoyed his company?
Go ahead and say a word or two if you feel inclined. I’ll see that he gets your comments. Thanks!
