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."
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.
