Drink menu

🥃 Cigars: Kick back with a smooth cigar to go with your hand crafted bourbon or whiskey in the ventilated humidor. Cigars are on site and available for every connoisseur.

🥃 Whiskey Education: WVM is Bell county’s first and currently only legal distillery. The Evans family helped settle the area in 1866/1867 and they’ve been farming and ranching in Little River-Academy ever since. In September 2022 the distillery opened to the public and has now become THE spot to be. Seed to glass, grain to glass, farm and field to glass or seed to sip, they’ve got something unique for you. They also sell locally grown, responsibly raised beef.

🥃 Culinary Delights: The menu of elevated bar food will fill you up while you enjoy your evening. You’ll love the selection of favorites like poutine and burgers, and you can enjoy eating locally raised beef. Hors d’oeuvres & snacks will be served for free for all guests.

🥃 LOTS & LOTS of raffle items and giveaways to win! We’re raffling off everything from beer, bait, to ammo! There will be kids items and adult items all up for grabs for a chance to win in the silent raffle AND we will have the good stuff in the live auction including rare bottles of bourbon like delicious Eagle Rare, Stagg, Single Barrel Knob Creek, 12 yr Weller, and much more!

🥃 Raising Money for Children: Your attendance at this event plays a crucial role in supporting our nonprofit’s mission to provide educational resources and opportunities for underprivileged students, truly making a positive difference in their lives.
