The Kentucky Distillers’ Association and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail have teamed up to produce a first-ever fantasy camp for bourbon. The Kentucky Bourbon Affair will take place May 14-18 and will feature one-of-a-kind interactive bourbon experiences. Visit a distiller’s man-cave, blend your own bourbon, learn about bourbon and food pairings, and learn about bourbon history. Then attend the cocktail parties around Louisville in the evening.
This event was planned to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Congressional Resolution that declared bourbon a distinctive product of the United States. Since Kentucky produces the overwhelming majority of the world’s bourbon, it’s time to show the world just how we do it.
Golden tickets are available for $1350 and get you priority access to the myriad events The Kentucky Bourbon Affair has to offer. If that price tag is a little steep, tickets for individual events can be purchased for $100-200. Golden tickets are already on sale, with over half gone already. Tickets for the individual events will go on sale over the next few weeks. Check their Facebook page for details.
