Great Program

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Louisville, KY

Pros-Very organized summer program complete with "field trips" to various distilleries.
-All employees are very friendly and approachable. Extremely supportive atmosphere.
-Unbelievably delicious "Bourbon Street Cafe" for lunch.
-Opportunity to take on real responsibility as a summer intern.
-Brand education programs are open to interns and offer an excellent way to improve your knowledge and pallet.

Cons-Though the campus is beautiful and historic, it is not in a particularly great/safe part of Louisville. Expect to see armed security guards at every entrance and don't expect to walk around outside of campus looking for a nice lunch place.
-Summer experience varies greatly depending on what group or brand team you are placed with.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat summer internship program. Though there are huge benefits to placing interns with one brand team for the summer, it would be nice to find ways to give everyone some exposure to the company's core brands (Jack Daniels, Southern Comfort...)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A company that truly values its people and where the leaders are not represented as the only achievers.
