Welcome to the European Bourbon and Rye Association
We are an association according to Swiss law and our purpose is to be a platform for those who are interested and in love with American Bourbon and Rye whiskies.
The European Bourbon and Rye Association, short EBRA, was founded in December 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland and is ready to welcome new members.
Everybody, living in Europe can become a member. Please see the EBRA statutes for more information.If you want to apply for membership, please fill out this form and we will contact you in order to send you all financial details and other information about EBRA.
What we offer
There are two fixed offerings we provide:
- We organise several international events. As most of our members are settled in Switzerland or Germany, most of the events take place in one of these countries. That will change as soon as other countries gain a higher mebership number.
- One goals is to buy at least one barrel of bourbon or rye a year. We have a savings account set up and it already helds some good amount of contributions. Members may participate in this barrel fund and will, after a succesful buy, get the number of bottles they are entitled to at the costing price.
What else do we do? Well that depends very much on the members. Let us know your ideas and we will see if we can pull it off. Any kind of criticism is very welcom! Don’t be surprised if we ask you to participat in the organisation of EBRA.
