John Wayne coming to Owensboro! Dukes Spirit will open the John Wayne experience.
John Wayne is coming to Owensboro Kentucky. No not the man himself. He died 40 years ago. Duke Spirits, a company that makes bourbon and rye based on the actor’s 1962 handwritten recipes, will be opening its Duke Tasking Room and John Wayne Experience at Owensboro’s O.Z. Tyler Distillery, which crafts the product.
“John Wayne is an international icon,’ Mark Calitri, president of the Owensboro Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said of the announcement, “ You just can’t buy this type of national and international exposure with a legend like John Wayne, and we are going to capitalize on it.”
Visit Owensboro is the official destination marketing organization for Owensboro and Daviess County Kentucky. www.visitowensboro.com Mark Calitri serves as President/CEO.
