A Badger on the Bourbon Trail
Follow Mixologist Aubrey Dodd & 25 Badger Employees on a Trip Through Kentucky

The Kentucky Sales Training Trip 2018 took 25 Badger sales employees to Louisville in July. The employees were able to tour the distilleries of Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Heaven Hill and Buffalo Trace. The goal of the trip was to be a great learning opportunity to tour the locations/distilleries, learn more about the brands and how they are made, and better understand a lot of the backstory of the brands.
