Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Kentucky Bourbon Festival blog. Here you’ll find all things bourbon and Festival related. The Kentucky Bourbon Festival began in 1992 as a Bourbon tasting and dinner and has grown into the week-long festival that it is today thanks to the support of our distilleries, sponsors, and many volunteers. There’s something truly irresistible about the community of Bardstown, making it the perfect place for us to host the Festival and for you to spend your week. We are very excited for the Festival this September, and we hope to see you there! Be sure to check back for posts about product launches, Festival updates, news, history, science, and maybe even some messages from Master Distillers.
