LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky is familiar with the taste of bourbon candy, but when you visit other states they are simply marveled by the taste. I asked DB Bourbon Candy owner Robyn Stuart how did they feel the moment when they realized that the highest government official in the United States of America would be attending the V.I.P. reception they were sponsoring.
Stuart says, “It made me proud and even more excited to get to Washington to make sure everything looks and taste just right.”
The Frankfort, Kentucky business along with Four Roses Bourbon will travel to the District of Columbia to be sponsors of the V.I.P. Reception at the 45th Annual Legislative Conference Phoenix Awards Dinner where President Barack Obama will serve as the keynote speaker. The dinner will be held on Saturday, September 19 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. at 6:00 p.m.
DB Bourbon Candy was asked to provide 600 boxes of their delicious Four Roses Bourbon filled candy for guests to enjoy. Dignitaries from Congress, the Senate, the President and First Lady Michelle Obama will all be in attendance.
Prior to Saturday’s event on Wednesday, September 14, DB Bourbon Candy will provide 200 boxes for the 20th Annual Celebration of Leadership in Fine Arts honoring entertainment icons Cicely Tyson, Richard Roundtree and Dionne Warwick. It takes place at Sidney Harman Hall, 610 F. Street NW, Washington, D.C.
DB Bourbon Candy has participated in some of the biggest events across the U.S. from three invites to the Academy Awards, Emmys, Breeder’s Cup Taste of the World at Winstar, Chris Tucker Celebrity Golf Tournament, Barbara Streisand Fundraiser, Chris Everett Charity event, Soul Train Awards, Kentucky NFL Hall of Fame and many Kentucky Derby events like Barnstable-Brown Gala, Grand Gala and 100 Black Men of Louisville.
