Kentucky Distiller's Association offers fantasy camp for bourbon lovers

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, May 11, 2014 11:00 AM EDT

People from as far away as Poland have snapped up tickets for "Kentucky Bourbon Affair" — the Kentucky Distiller's Association's inaugural event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Congress declaring bourbon "America's only native spirit."

Think of the five-day affair that begins May 14 as a fantasy camp for bourbon lovers.

The showcase includes exclusive behind-the-scenes tours and events at local bourbon distilleries by day, and special bourbon cuisine and culture gatherings in the evenings.

About 3,000 people are expected to attend, and event organizers say they've gotten calls from people all over the world.

People are paying for the chance to have a real hands-on bourbon experience like blending their own small-batch bourbon straight from the barrel, and rolling and dumping barrels.


Tonight at 8:00 PM
