Whiskies from around the world are invading Kentucky -- Irish, Scottish and Canadian, to be exact - for a one-of-a-kind, four-way debate to decide once and for all which whisk(e)y is best. So, we ask you, which side will have your support? Join us as legendary ambassadors take on seventh generation Jim Beam master distiller, Fredrick “Fred” Booker Noe, to battle it out in the most honorable way possible – in a good, ‘ole fashioned debate! Fred will be joined by ambassadors Kieran Folliard (Kilbeggan), Simon Brooking (Laphroaig) and Dan Tullio (Canadian Club) as they discuss the merits  of whisk(e)y from around the world. Could another whisk(e)y earn top honors on America’s famed Kentucky Bourbon Trail®? Or, will Bourbon send them all packing in shame?  In the end, only one whisk(e)y can prevail, so we hope you’ll join us at the Great Whisk(e)y Debate to show your loyalty and cast your vote as we celebrate these world-famous whiskies. Mix and Mingle in the famed Jim Beam Man Cave while enjoying Kentucky inspired food. End the day with a mixology session with Beam’s very own Master Mixologist- Bobby G.  Work alongside Bobby G in creating Bourbon Cocktails.  As a keepsake you’ll be able to take home your mixology tool-kit!

Something Old, Something New—A Tale of Two Distilleries Thursday, May 15th 2pm

Here’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity from Heaven Hill Distilleries to see a column still distillery and a pot still artisanal distillery, and explore the differences and similarities between the two. 

You'll start at Heaven Hill’s historic Bernheim Distillery and check out the massive 70-foot column stills and fermenters, a tour never before offered to the general public! 

Next, you’ll take a short trip to the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience along downtown Louisville’s historic “Whiskey Row,” the newest stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour.  There, you’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind insider’s look at the graceful pot stills, and learn the nuances of distillation as it was done back in Evan Williams’ time. 

Column still or pot still?  How about both on this exclusive Heaven Hill tour!

Guests will also get a rare chance to taste several different Bourbons and new-makes and will receive a special one-of-a-kind Heaven Hill Select Stock Bourbon--an 8 Year Old, cask strength, non-chill filtered Wheated Bourbon finished in Frapin Cognac barrels for 2 years.  Each bottle will have the Kentucky Bourbon Affair logo and the date of the event.
