News Release, Historic Sotterley

Just in time for Father’s Day: A fun and unique gift for Dad!  Join us for a   VIRTUAL Bourbon tasting featuring Dan Dawson and Scott Sanders, the Founding Partners of Tobacco Barn Distillery located in Hollywood, Maryland in St. Mary’s County. This dynamic duo will share their extensive knowledge, personal stories and background in Bourbon making, tasting, and history.  You’ll taste the goodness of St. Mary’s County grown corn in this fun, fascinating, and informative tasting. Be prepared to learn, laugh AND taste!
