In this first episode the team visited Bardstown, Kentucky’s world-famous bourbon-tasting event
Bardstown’s Kentucky Bourbon Festival was reinvented in recent years and now offers whiskey enthusiasts more than ever before. From unlimited pours of a diverse range of whiskey styles to festival-exclusive barrel picks, master classes to live music — the Festival is a true bucket list event for whiskey enthusiasts, connoisseurs and collectors. Distillers old and new, commercial and crafty were all in attendance, pouring for attendees who’d flown in from all over the United States and beyond.
Now a true destination event, we sent Whisky Magazine’s editor-at-large Christopher Coates and American Whiskey Magazine’s contributing editor Maggie Kimberl to learn more.
