“We are very pleased to have earned a Silver Medal in this year’s National Bourbon Tasting by The Fifty Best," says owner/distiller Kevin Roberts. "So many outstanding distilleries have participated in The Fifty Best tastings over the years. To be in the same company as Buffalo Trace, Taylor, Hillrock, High West, and Taconic is very exciting. We are thrilled to have our 100% made in Kennett Square Bourbon Whiskey in the national spotlight."
Meet our Board Members
Kennett Collaborative is a nonprofit led by a diverse and dynamic group of community members who love Kennett and want to help it become a more beautiful and welcoming community where all can belong and prosper. Each week, we introduce you to one of our Board members who share what they love about our community—and about Kennett Collaborative.
Luke grew up near Harrisburg, went to Penn State, and after a short stint in Pittsburgh landed in Kennett Square 20 years ago. After 17 years at Chatham Financial, Luke joined Square Roots Collective, where he leads operations.
He lives in the Borough with his wife Jessica and three children. He loves being connected to the world by sidewalks, and he and Jessica make good use of them when walking their dog Sully. He loves books (presidential biographies and spy novels among them), pine trees (he’s planted 8 of them in his small Borough yard), the water and water birds, Penn State football and wrestling, and following the pursuits of his kids (college, high school, middle school).
Luke joined the board of Kennett Collaborative because he resonates with its vision of a thriving community and its resulting efforts to strengthen the fabric of community life.
"There’s a distinction between a great town and a great community," he says, "and I see Kennett Collaborative as a key part of helping to make Kennett a great community."
Days like these—and photos like this—have us dreaming of spring and Kennett Blooms 2022!
In the coming weeks we'll be sharing more about plans to help make Kennett Square even more beautiful this spring. In the meantime, please sign up to join us on March 10th for our next KSQ Speaker Series event with Christie Purifoy, who will explore how the best kind of placemaking happens when we listen to both engineers and poets.
Thank you for continuing to show your love for local as you support local small businesses and nonprofits. We wish you a happy and healthy week "Around the Square"!
