What is Bourbon Classic?
Bourbon Classic, a premier Kentucky Bourbon Festival, is the holy trinity for experiencing the very best in the culinary, cocktail and Bourbon arts through a collection of rare, interactive events. Infused with exceptional tastings, workshops and unrivaled sips, these events are sure to thrill any Bourbon connoisseur and enthusiast.
Our signature events include Cocktail & Culinary Challenge, featuring cocktails and small plates from notable chefs and bartenders, Bourbon University educational sessions and TASTE a one-of-a-kind opportunity to sample a variety of different Bourbons, meet renowned master distillers and enjoy delicious dishes from our featured restaurants.
Since launching in 2013, this event quickly arose to become a consumer darling. Bourbon Classic was bestowed with the distinct honor of making Travel & Leisure’s “7 Best Cocktail Festivals Around the Country” list as well as a write up in USA Today featuring annual cocktail competitions across the country. This event is really the Bourbon experience of a lifetime.
