With a month to go before Bourbon's biggest party, we wanted to give everyone a general update as we inch closer to May 14th-18th.  Yes, the Golden Tickets sold out long ago, but we still have many events open for purchase, both day and night.  Want to sip Four Roses Bourbon at the Louisville Boat Club? Get tickets under the Evening Events section under the Events and Tickets tab.  Want to sample innovative products from our Craft distillers and make your own custom mixer? Check out our event with Moonshine University.  We also have several slots remaining at the distilleries' many day events, available for purchase here.

Our opening and closing events also have availability and are perfect opportunities to see so many of our master distillers all in one place with plenty of Bourbons to sample and so much of Louisville's fantastic food scene to taste.

And last but not least, be sure to check out our newly announced Polo Tournament Send-off event featuring plenty of downtown polo action and tailgating.  

The bottom-line is that there is still time and tickets available to get in on this one-of-a-kind Ky Bourbon fantasy camp.


Why the Ky Bourbon Affair?

Kentucky has long held a love affair with Bourbon – a notorious passion unlike any other state or spirit in America.  Now, the Commonwealth’s most treasured distilleries are opening their hearts and doors for an intimate, rare celebration – the Kentucky Bourbon Affair.  For four days, an elite group of attendees will have the opportunity to mix with world-famous Master Distillers and experience our timeless craft like never before.

Blend your own small batch Bourbon… Train your palate with culinary pairings from award-winning chefs… Hang in your favorite distiller’s man cave… tour distilleries never before opened to the public…sample from the very first barrels of hand-crafted brands…hear family histories, and a few tall tales, from the Bourbon barons themselves…and relish a few eccentric surprises that might require you to sign a waiver, but you’ll cherish the memories for a lifetime.

May 14th-18th, 2014

And that’s just during the day... When night falls, guests will enjoy the cosmopolitan allure of Louisville with sophisticated events to showcase the Derby City as the heartbeat of Bourbon culture. Ticket sales will be limited, so don’t miss this unforgettable opportunity.

It will definitely be an affair to remember.
