Morris to serve as chairman of distiller’s association
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Master distiller Chris Morris of Brown-Forman has been selected as chairman of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association – the 136-year-old group that promotes the state’s bourbon and distilled spirits industry.
Morris is marking his 40th year in the industry. He will serve as the group’s chairman through December.
Morris says plenty of events and programs are planned in 2016 to promote the state’s bourbon industry.
The KDA Board of Directors selected officers during its annual meeting recently at the historic Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville.
The KDA is the state’s voice for bourbon and spirits issues. There are currently 28 members, the most since the repeal of Prohibition.
