Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has won its share of honors and awards. That’s why for the last decade we’ve sought out those who share our passion for excellence to honor them with the Eagle Rare Life Award.

We are incredibly proud to recognize Natalie Guo with the 2021 Eagle Rare Life Award and a $50,000 donation to her charity, Off Their Plate.

Natalie’s story is the epitome of the American Dream. From immigrating to the United States as a child, to graduating from Princeton and Harvard Business School, working for two premier investment firms, to now earning her M.D. from Harvard Medical School, Natalie has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to Reach Higher in her every pursuit.

In 2020, Natalie founded Off Their Plate to provide an economic lifeline to COVID-impacted restaurants and to feed communities in crisis. What started as an initiative to help her Boston community, Natalie’s charity has expanded to nine cities, serving more than 730,000 meals and providing over $3.6 million in economic relief for restaurant workers.
