Why have you Boris and Michael appointed a national security adviser who has no apparent expertise insecurity? That was her. So of all nine. Do you not think I'm slightly play devil's advocate here because I kind of agree with you but she sought overplayed her handlebar I've looked into David Frost background and he's got a lot more experience than I think a lot of people for I think a lot of people just thought he was chief executive of the Scotch Whisky Association.

"As through all. We've met with pretty much. Anybody who would listen to us A and I've got to give a hint to our partners at the Scotch Whisky Association. That's still spirits. Council United States the American Krispies Association. The American deals just disassociation. I mean this affects all of us. So one of the things that we did Infrared was actually there a couple of years ago we brought the world whisky community to Lowell and had a w. nine some of the Nanna so we called the w nine and talked about this. You know what are we all going to do about this? Because it affects everybody and we met for two days and eventually Put out a resolution calling upon the world's leaders to get together and resolve this quickly before they long-term consequences re send them became real And even planted notary Right in front of the racer There and in a lot of press and we got a lot of phone calls about it in and we all kind of went back to our corners and did what we we've continues is just talked to every congress person You name it Congressman Andy. Barring Kentucky was having a fundraiser with Vice President Pence Flying in he managed to get our our major companies in a meeting with vice president. Pence who from Indiana knows exactly what Bourbon means to Kentucky And he took that message back to the president trump The governor here in Kentucky had vice president pence last year during the Derby to the same thing for us to help us We've got you know we're on speed dial with Senator McConnell's office checking in consistently With them on what more they can do We've had meetings recently with them Commerce a Cabinet Finance Cabinet Trade You Know Senator Grassley Office people just really explaining them how devastating these consequences could be if this goes on much longer and the answer to them is all you know we understand But these decisions are being made at such high levels. That's where the frustration comes in and Eating though we we know that the US does have trade issues with countries and we get that And we know that the stealing aluminum thing relationship because here in Kentucky we have great stealing aluminum plants because of our historic low energy rates So you know we're not pointing fingers at Anybody. We're just you know going up and just trying to tell our story on you know what this could mean to the industry You know because it's it's like against like just putting the brakes on a freight train which is trying to sell barber at the end of the day or at least remind I wanNA remind people to who are listening. And we're we're never really going to get a lot of backlash on this people are GonNa think. Oh this is political. You know you're you're you're bashing trump and what he's trying to do. I want to remind people that this is not political. This is this is an industry who speaks both sides. Absolutely and Thomas bipartisan. Talk Talk to us about about that. About how you how you have to kind of. Keep your personal politics out of it and how you have to work with both sides. What's that like? Well let me start out from a standpoint here You see alcohol bills in Kentucky are incredibly hard to pass No matter what the subject is I mean? We've even had people up here that will vote against our social responsibility efforts Just because the word alcoholics and the title of the bill so we have to have Democrats and Republicans supporting alcohol measures or they just won't pass. So yes we are constantly. We say we support our friends. We have friends on both sides of the aisle in the great thing about our Kentucky General Assembly as they understand that Because they know that some of their members because of their constituencies than coming from dry counties just cannot support alcohol yet but with ally Cao. He said yet. Yes Yeah Well Wedge. The you know the great thing about one of the smartest things. Katie did You know years back. In two thousand ten was invite the Craft Stiller's coming into Kentucky into the Association. We changed our by laws. Because not only is it good for them? And our legacy distilleries have been tremendous mentors to them but it also spread our political footprint across the state now in thirty two counties and so we've had legislators now who never voted wet who vote wet because they understand the the economic impact in the tourism impact especially of of that craft is still are in their district. So that's really helped but we know you look at you know we have a political action committee. We raised money for that You look our donations. They're almost evenly split between Democrats and Republicans because we have to have support on both sides of the aisle So we're very fortunate in Kentucky. Yes we have centered McConnell Who can be a lightning rod? Obviously if you're you know in politics But we're lucky that we have is leadership up there because he has the president's ear and he always you know carrying our agenda that's why we have given him awards in the past. We're very fortunate. Have John Yarmuth out of Louisville now charing ways and means and so met with him recently and And he gets it because conquering with his huge Bourbon. Fan and especially in Lowell Bourbon City right now in all the tremendous growth they are. He sees the tourism impact and the economic impact on a daily basis. Having him in the house carrying that message for us is equally as important and You know he and Congressman Brett. Guthrie started the Bourbon Caucus in DC. Which which is growing and as more and more States you know produce America's only native spirit so we have to be bipartisan and it's funny because as presently katy kind of like a chameleon on my Republican friends think I'm a Democrat. I'm a democratic friends. Think I'm a Republican and I said what must be doing something right. I don't know what I saw. You also have to be careful with your membership when you go to the bar you pick I do and it's it's funny. Obviously you know when people ask me what Your Bourbon Kentucky Bourbon is is always Mansard But in it what I usually try to do One of two things. I'll usually try to drink from the county. I'm in right then Also tend to favor our chairman or chairwoman right now at the time if you know this year is the Heaven Hill Year to chair the K. TA and Our Great Friend Jessica Pentagram for Heaven Hill General Counsel is is the new chairwoman. So you'll probably tend to see me drink more hill products this year But then there are some bars. I go to and Eric what he wanted to surprise me. You know just just makes me a good old fashioned and and I'll go from there. Yeah they his memberships got spies autumn. They have to Right so I guess one of the things I wanNA talk about it. Part of the lobbying effort here is there has to be. It's got to be frustrating. Because we're this is a syntax. Basically at the end of the day right like it's alcohol and I would imagine that government just look at it like it's an easy target or it's an easy target attacks when you all like your rumblings of anything like is it like all right here. We go like put the bat signal in the everybody get together. We're GONNA fly there. We're going to squash this before. It ever blows up well first of all when you look at the government of a fair strategies for your strategy number. One is always hold the line on taxes. Everything else is one a one B And Fred Highlighted are two thousand nine Bourbon Tea Party in which we poured Burg on the Capitol steps. And if you go to my office on top of the Cabinet and I have the empty bottles in there That serve as a daily reminded me of. Never forget that you know yes right now. They're your friend but in their star for revenue the first place they usually look is cigarettes or alcohol or one of the what they would think of as sin industries. But I think we've done a good job You know challenge changing the conversation the culture in Frankfurt especially from Santa Signature and that two thousand nine Bill Was probably the best wakeup call for the industry and the association that in one of the best things that ever happened to us. I mean I can tell you the dates. It was announced it would. It's ingrained memories announced on February six. They passed it on Friday February thirteenth took effect on April Fools Day. I mean you couldn't have written a better script for how all this went down. But you had the bourbon industry and Bourbon the alcohol industry in general because you had the beer truck circling the capitol. You know we Galvin as they you. We fought the governor the Senate president and the Speaker of the House on an issue and came within one vote of killing that and one week and it brought us together. More more quicker than anything could have so. He's actually a blessing in disguise for us because we held an emergency meeting after that February twenty six. See the these are how important these dates were to me in the history And one of our board members looked at the rest of the board and said are we really a signature industry or is that a self portrait and you could see her by just kind of limiting. They physically took a step back from the table and went. You're right are we really a sinew? We'd like to think we're a signature missing. But are we and so they said what do we need to do? And so he's all right. We need to have an economic impact study. That shows what our impact is to the comma. Will we need to start talking about Bourbon? Not just as a drink but as part of the culture and the economy and tourism and things like that and so once. We started doing that and we did. We came up with the first ever. Economic Impact Study and it is such a tool for the industry in. Oh to showcase what we mean to Kentucky that we do it every two years now and. It's a no-brainer. We just don't do it every two years to update and so that gives also the ability to forecast. Right what jobs are going to do what we think is going to be coming down the line but once we started talking about Bourbon as economic development and tourism in an investment in jobs. It really changed the focus here in Frankfurt that. We weren't a sin industry more as as Fred said earlier because I remember sitting in a meeting in two thousand and ten with Bill Samuels and and Senate president or Senator Robert Stivers now senate president and him looking at saying. You're not a signature industry your image industry. But you are not a signature. Amnesty Cole is a single transistor. Because he's from the coalfields of Eastern Kentucky and now to hear him stand up and say you may be the only signature industry left and the state because Cole is is is dying. Tobacco is dead. horse racing definitely has its challenges. that's been you know. A one eighty turn around from where we were ten years ago. But it's a lot. It's been a lot of hard work. educating legislators and You know in all the other tools at a trade association uses Like political action committees and things like that and to make sure that they know that we appreciate their support and changing these laws. So Kenny. This is. We've talked a lot about the lobbying side. What happened around. Two thousand nine was that they kind of activated something within a within their organization that they really had never done before and that's a promotional component. Let's talk about that for minute. What what steps starting in two thousand nine did you start on in? You mentioned the study. Which by the way average salary of a Bourbon worker. Nine hundred ninety five thousand dollars. Ninety five thousand dollars. That's a great industry and so talk about like the steps that you have taken with the promotional side from the Kentucky Bourbon Trail to the Kentucky Bourbon affair and all the other stuff you're.
