Founded in 2016, Blackout Group is composed of three key components: Bourbon, Horses and Charity.
What we do
Blackout Group is composed of 3 core elements.
Founded in 2016, Blackout Barrel Group has picked over 125 barrels from every major distiller. We also have our own private label bottled under the Blackout brand.
Founded in 2018, Blackout Racing Stable currently owns 6 horses: Dawn’s Creed, Book of Kells, Street Fight, Study Committee, Mombayla, Mrs. Rip & Pace Yourself. We have career earnings of over $950,000 on our 15 wins.
Founded in 2019, Barrels For a Cause is our annual 501c3 charity event. Since our inception Blackout has donated over $775,000 to local charities in Kentucky region.
Blackout Group is a social club that was founded in 2016. Blackout works with local and national retailers and distillers to select private barrels of bourbon and other brown spirits to be shared by its membership. Along with barrel picks we also bottle our own private label for our members.
To date, Blackout has selected over 125 private barrels from brands such as: E.H. Taylor, Willett, Four Roses, Blanton’s, Eagle Rare, W.L. Weller, John J. Bowman, Russell’s Reserve, Knob Creek, Mayor Pingree, Boone County, Elijah Craig, Old Forester, New Riff, Wilderness Trail, Maker’s Mark and L’Encantada. Blackout has also re-purposed used barrels from our selections to create one-of-a-kind blends of wheated bourbon, bourye and Four Roses.
Blackout Racing Stable was founded in 2018. We currently have 8 horses in training based in Kentucky. Our horses have had great success on the race track amassing career earnings of over $950,000 and 15 career wins in 76 starts.
The initial and ongoing success of Blackout is entirely due to the character of its Membership. This has allowed us the ability to create a charitable wing of Blackout – Barrels for a Cause (BFAC).
BFAC is a Kentucky-based non-profit that is a 501(c)(3) organization. BFAC uses Blackout’s connections and resources within the spirits industry to raise money for various charitable organizations, primarily through an annual event held in June.
2023 Barrels for a Cause will take place Friday June 23rd at Angels Envy & all proceeds from our charity event will benefit multiple charities including Super Drew, Backside Learning Center, Misters for MS, Second Stride & More!
