Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy are wagering local delicacies on their home teams in the NCAA Championship men's basketball game.
If the Wildcats win, Malloy said he would send wine from the Jones Family Farms in Shelton, Conn., beer from Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, Conn., and Munson's chocolates.
The bourbon basket is created from a half-barrel from Maker's Mark. It will include 13 bourbons.
The barrel also will include barware, glasses, and accessories to conduct a tasting.
The Cats will tip off against the Huskies Monday at 9:10 p.m. EST at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
