Whisky Live - Kentucky Bourbon Affair

Let the festivities begin. When you are challenged with 150 whisky choices from around the world in one evening, you have to pace yourself. It’s a challenge but, someone has to do it. That’s the challenge at this weekend’s WHISKY LIVE in Louisville, KY June 18, 2016 from 5:30pm to 9:30pm. This is Whiskey Live’s first trip to Kentucky and it’s the culminating event of another world famous event, the Kentucky Bourbon Affair put on by the Kentucky Distillers’ Association.

The event includes more than 150 different pours of Scotch, Gin, Vodka, Bourbon and Whiskey from all over the world. As if the pours weren’t enough to get you in the door the evening also includes the opportunity to mingle with industry experts, authors, brand ambassadors and master distillers. There’s also a bourbon infused dinner buffet, it is after all an official Kentucky Bourbon Affair event.
