R&R Limousine’sv Eddie Fieldhouse completes Stave & Thief Bourbon certification program. Achieves Executive Bourbon Steward Certification
Louisville, Ky. (April 09, 2014) --- Eddie Fieldhouse, co-owner of Louisville, KY based R&R Limousine(www.rrlimo.com) has been certified by the Stave & Thief Society, a new bourbon certification program, that's launched to educate Louisville’s hospitality staff. This is the first bourbon certification program to be recognized by the bourbon industry.
Established to promote and uphold Kentucky’s distinguished bourbon culture, Stave & Thief Society will lead restaurant, bar, hotel, & hospitality employees to become Certified Bourbon Stewards through a standardized training program.
Eddie Fieldhouse has completed the certification and deemed the recognition of Executive Bourbon steward. "It was a one of a kind experience" says R&R Limousine owner Eddie Fieldhouse, "I went through classroom training, hands-on bourbon distilling, and advanced sensory training. As the official chauffeured transportation of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ® it's important to advance the bourbon experiences our business offers. Armed with this new knowledge our frontline bourbon tour specialists will be able to deliver an even better bourbon experience. They'll be able to have the knowledge to discuss bourbon attributes, advise patrons on the spirit and distinguish basic flavor profiles."
The inception of Stave & Thief Society(http://www.staveandthief.com/) came as part of a Bourbon & Food Work Group consisting of business executives, chefs, distillers and tourism leaders assembled by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer to further the city’s image as a top food and beverage destination. The bourbon certification curriculum was then developed by an advisory panel that included master distillers, restaurant owners and beverage directors, and spirits industry veterans in partnership with the Kentucky Distillers’ Association.
Owner, Carey Fieldhouse says "A lot of our clients ask us questions about bourbon product on our way to the tours and even after. We want to add to the enjoyment of our clients by being completely informed and up to date on the specifics so that we can have the meaningful conversations they deserve. This ensures their experience is insightful, fun, and more memorable."
