Brian is a Louisville, Kentucky attorney who found a way to combine his passions for law, bourbon, and history. After stumbling upon the Pepper v. Labrot case from 1881 and then learning the real truth about Col. E. H. Taylor, Jr., Brian knew that he had to tell the true story about bourbon and its connections with the development of American commercial law and the growth of the nation.
Discovery of the interplay between bourbon, law, and history led Brian to blogging as Sipp’n Corn®, which quickly developed into media credentials, collaboration with retailers to select private barrels, and ultimately to Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America.
Brian is a founding partner of his law firm where he serves the trial and litigation needs of clients in the financial services, insurance, and bourbon industries, among others, in state and federal courts in both Kentucky and Indiana. But this website is about bourbon, so to learn more about Brian’s law practice, check out this link to his firm’s website.
Bourbon Justice is Brian’s first book, but it won’t be his last.
