“The festival draws approximately 50,000 visitors from across the world to Bardstown, Kentucky each year,” says Kentucky Bourbon Festival Executive Director Jill Hawkins. “However, we feel as if the storied history of distilling America’s native spirit should be celebrated accordingly, and often, not just once a year! We’re excited for past festival patrons, as well as new friends within the industry, to experience these exciting upcoming events.”

There is a Stave & Thief Certified Bourbon Steward Training on Wednesday, June 12 from 6 pm until 9 pm. Facilitated by the Kentucky Bourbon Festival team, with curriculum developed by Moonshine University, event-goers will experience an in-depth educational session pertaining to the intricacies of bourbon.

There is a Bourbon Capital Mixed Drink Challenge on Thursday, June 13 at noon. A competition of mixology skills between distilleries, restaurants, and bars. The winner’s entry will be named the Official Cocktail of the 2019 Kentucky Bourbon Festival.
